Volunteer Registration | Off Grid Festival 2018

Hello and welcome to Off Grid Festival's volunteer registration process in 2018!

Please be aware that Off Grid is a 500 person capacity One Planet Community Festival and is a volunteer led gathering. Off Grid Festival is organised by the Association Of Resilient Living which will encourage 100% participation over the coming years. Please visit our website here for full details:

A deposit of £75 will be fully refunded upon completion of your agreed shifts.

Kitchen crew, bar staffing, event stewarding and production office, Off Grid and Resilient Living Info point volunteers:-
In exchange for FREE access to Off Grid, volunteers will agree to work three shifts of 4 - 6 hours in duration each day over the 4 days of the festival. Approximately 16-18 hrs dependent on role and requirements. You will be selected for the role that suits you best based on your preferences, skill set and experience level. We are a small community festival as such we are unable to offer meals for our volunteers during the festival. The site crew and clear up crew will be fed during their time before or after the event as these volunteers will be working longer shifts.

Kitchen Staff work either breakfast, lunch or dinner shifts, helping prepare food for attendees and run our busy kitchen space. Our stewards have a variety of roles onsite, from parking cars to helping keep the site clean and safe. Stewards are the eyes and ears of the festival, maintaining communication lines throughout the weekend. In the unlikely event of an emergency stewards may support the emergency response procedure like evacuation or emergency vehicle egress/regress marshalling. Bar staff work afternoon and evening shifts.

Site crew volunteers:- we need site volunteers to arrive on Sunday 6th August by 5 pm and work through till the afternoon of 9th August once the gates open. This role will mostly consist of physical work so it will be advantage if you are physically able for this role. You will have three meals per day for this period starting with a meal on evening of Sunday 5th and ending lunchtime on Thursday 9th. Working on this team is a fantastic team-building experience, we highly recommend it :)

Clear up crew volunteers:-
You will work from Monday 14th through to Wednesday 16th. You will have three meals per day ending with Wednesday evening. Your role will include packing down the event infrastructure, clearing litter and generally ensuring that we leave no trace! You will get entry to the festival from Thursday at 2pm

Places on each of these teams is strictly limited!

Most applications will be responded to within two weeks.
