How can I sign up?
When will applications open? What’s the deadline?
Applications are open now (see above). The closing date for the initial round of applications will be June 14th. Applications may re-open after this date but these will not be role-specific so we advise you sign up sooner rather than later.
Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes, a deposit of £135/500kn is required pre-event (depending on your location).
When is the deposit deadline?
Your deposit must be paid before 21st June and is non-refundable pre-event. After the festival, providing you have completed all your shifts, this will be refunded back to the card you paid on.
When should I book my travel?
All Dimensions volunteers are required to be onsite on site and ready to work 4th September- 9th September 2013
Site Crew and Décor are required onsite from the 2nd September
Box Office volunteers are required site from the 3rd September
You need to confirm your travel arrangements within your PAAM Profile.
Remember, you are responsible for making your own way to and from the festival.
Can I travel by Sunshine Bus?
Yes. Please send an email titled “SUNSHINE BUS” to email@example.com when you have booked your bus ticket, including the times and dates of your bus. (This will allow us to plan in case your bus is late) If you do not do this you will be held responsible for missing any shifts.
How much work do I have to do?
Each volunteer does 3 x 6-8 hour shifts. There are various roles available, from litter picking to wristband exchange…and the hours required vary depending on your role.
Are there any other perks?
Yes, volunteers get free camping in campsite Brioni for the duration of the festival (5h August to 8th September), and also a food token per shift worked.
What happens if I don’t turn up?
If you miss a shift you will not be given your full festival wristband, and your deposit for both the ticket and camping will not be repaid to you. If there is a legitimate reason please talk to the Volunteer Management Office onsite and they will see what can be done.
When will I find out my shifts?
Rota’s will not be released until August. Please do not contact the volunteer management team requesting particular shifts.
My friend is also volunteering, can we work the same shifts together?
We are unable to group friends volunteering together. There will be a peer shift swapping system available onsite. So if you find someone to swap with we are able change your shifts.
I’m planning on attending a boat party, how do I make sure the times don’t clash?
You book boat parties at your own risk, we cannot fit rotas around boat party requests. Sorry!
Can I work in Artist Liaison/Site Crew/Stage Management/Décor?
No, these roles have now been filled for 2013 season.
If you have chosen these roles as your 3 options and have not heard back from us at this point, you will need to cancel your position and re-apply for another role.
