Fancy rocking out at some of the top music festivals this summer, including Leeds Fest, for free?

If so, then Oxfam are on the lookout for volunteers this August bank holiday weekend.

The charity is searching for people to work three shifts over five days at festivals such as Leeds, Reading and Shambala.

Volunteers not only get to catch performances from the likes of Kasabian, Eminem and Korn.

They will also be put up in a designated workers field with clean showers and a 24-hour catering service.

“Being a volunteer at festivals is a music lover’s dream,” said George Upcott, Oxfam’s Head of Festivals.

“You do three shifts at each event, and off duty you’re free to enjoy yourself like any other festival-goer.

“Oxfam volunteers also get special perks.

“They camp in a secure field with showers, toilet facilities, phone charging, a chill-out marquee, free tea and coffee and meals.

“We give everyone training including professional skills such as customer relations, which employers value in the real world.

“Best of all, everyone receives a warm welcome and meets a great bunch of like-minded individuals.

“Volunteering at a festival either as a campaigner, steward or in an on-site Oxfam shop is the perfect way to have a great time and at the same time help Oxfam fight poverty around the world.”

All applicants must be aged 18 or over.
