Festival volunteering

Want to help us support young people AND have a truly unforgettable experience at some of the UK's best festivals for free*? 

We're passionate about preventing youth homelessness. And if you've got this far, we're guessing you are too. So why not make our cause your cause, with My Cause UK?

1625 Independent People have teamed up with My Cause UK to help supporters like you to volunteer at some of the UK's finest music festivals this summer. You get to enjoy the festival on and off shift and My Cause UK will make a donation to 1625ip, on your behalf, in return for your time. And as if that wasn't enough to make you feel warm and fuzzy - perks of the job include an unlimited supply of tea and coffee, a meal per shift at the larger weekend events and a crew wristband to enjoy the festival when you’re not working. And if you're coming with friends you can work together as a team.

So how does it work?

My Cause volunteers take on a variety of roles depending on the needs of the festival, including stewarding stages, campsites and car parks, staffing gates, checking tickets and wrist banding, as well as bar staff, programme sales and almost everything in between! 
In return for your time 1625ip will receive a donation of up to £50, depending which event you volunteer at. When you apply make sure you select 1625 Independent People in the ‘Your Nominated Charity’ section. You’ll also need our registered number which is 23964R.
So if you want to see a different side to iconic events like Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, Love Saves the Day, The Downs Bristol and Tokyo World, save yourself some moolah AND raise money to help us support young people this summer, we've got it sorted.

*You will need to pay a deposit equivalent to the ticket price of your chosen event to act as a guarantee against your ticket… But don’t worry! This deposit will be returned to you following the completion of your shifts, minus a small administration fee.
