Hotbox Campsite and Arena Volunteers


Would you like to gain valuable experience for your CV, whilst helping us continue to make Leeds one of the best festivals in the world?

Volunteer at Rockstar Energy presents Leeds Festival with Hotbox Events and not only will you be helping other festival goers get the most out of their weekend, but you’ll also get to go behind the scenes, meet other volunteers from around the world, and make new friends.

When joining us as a volunteer at Leeds you’ll be provided with entry to the festival (including lots of free time to enjoy it), plus access to staff camping, catering, toilets and showers.

Volunteers assist with a wide variety of areas, and it’s tricky to list everything they get up to, but some of the most common roles include…

  • Helping festival goers in the campsites.
  • Answering questions about festival performances and line-ups.
  • Helping festival goers carry their belongings and pitch their tents.
  • Reporting any problems such as a build-up of litter or faulty facilities.
  • Work alongside Leeds Festival Fire Safety, Medical and Security teams.
  • Keeping an eye on the festival campsites from the fire towers.
  • Helping out with various roles across the festival site including pedestrian and vehicle gates, wristband exchanges, keeping an eye on facilities, monitoring stages and walkways.

If you want to find out more, head to the Volunteer page on the Hotbox website.

Volunteer with Oxfam

Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end poverty.

By joining our team of volunteer stewards this summer, you’ll be helping to raise around £1 million towards our life-saving work, while also having an amazing time at Leeds.

At Leeds our stewards cover the arena and gates over 3 x 8 hour shifts, so you’ll never be far from the action, and when you’re not on shift the festival is your oyster.

You’ll also get access to our secure campsite, with perks like free hot drinks, hot showers, and device charging, and we’ll give you a meal ticket for every shift too.

You can use your volunteering deposit (which is refunded to you after the festival once you have completed your shifts) to sign up to as many festivals as you like with us this year at no additional cost. Plus, if you volunteer with us at two or more festivals this year, you’ll get ‘Priority’ for next year. This means you can grab a place at any of our 2024 festivals before we open applications to the public!

More info to come February 2024. Register your interest to find out when applications open or join our Facebook group to meet fellow volunteers and stay in the loop.
