Various Festival Work Opportunities!

  • Volunteer (no expenses)
  • Various UK/IRL

Website Festival Republic


Looking to add some relevant work experience to your CV this summer? Keen to meet new people in real life instead of on the internet? Need some extra cash? Or just want to get yourself to some festivals but don’t have the funds?

If you are friendly, honest, and fun we’d love you to join our FR Gate Teams over the summer.

Festival Republic is looking for students to help at our music festivals over the holidays. We have shows from June to September and once you register, you can sign up to work at as many or as few as you’d like.

We have both paid and volunteer roles available so you can choose whether you’d like to rack up the hours to top up your bank account or would rather volunteer before the music starts and then spend the weekend reaping the rewards.

The perks vary between festivals but include access to staff camping with hot showers, more loos, staff shuttles and subsidised catering. You’ll be working & camping with a bunch of great people, some who are shiny and new like you, and others who’ve been with us for years and keep coming back for more.

If you have friends or family members (18+ only) who would also like to work with you but aren’t students or on your course, we can let you know how to recommend them once you’ve registered.

Some of the festivals we offer roles at have included (note: not all are available in 2021): GUNNERSVILLE CONCERTS (UK), WIRELESS (UK), DOWNLOAD (UK), BBC IN HYDE PARK (UK), WILDERNESS (UK), COMMUNITY (UK),  LONGITUDE (IRL), ELECTRIC PICNIC (IRL), KALEIDOSCOPE (IRL),

If you’re interested, please submit your details to the self-referral link below.

We’ll need your:
 Full name,
 Email address
 Student ID #
 A photo/scan of your photocard student ID

Please use an email account where we can contact you over the summer – we’ll be in touch directly with all the dates and information you’ll need to choose your events and register with us (don’t worry, you won’t be added to any marketing databases, we only use your details to contact you about the roles we have available and you can opt out at any time).

We ask all staff for a security deposit to cover the cost of a ticket (often less depending on the event). As a single refundable deposit this will cover you for as many events as you want to work over the season and gives us the security that our events will be staffed and stop last minute drop-outs or no-shows. Once you finish the last event you signed up for, you’ll get it all back in time for the Autumn term (subject to completing your role within the terms and conditions). Full details of this are covered in the application process but if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Hope to see you in the fields!
The Festival Republic Ticketing Team.
