Support the PSG and Get Free Entry to Music Festivals this Summer!
The PSG is pleased to announce that it will again be cooperating with the Workers’ Beer Company to send volunteers this summer to Reading Festival, Leeds Festival, Proms in the Park and BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park.
Volunteers work shifts (of approximately six hours) on the bar at the above events. In exchange they receive FREE entry to the festival and a couple of free drinks after their shift. Where the event runs over a number of days they will also have access to a secure campsite with toilets, showers and a subsidised canteen and bar. The PSG will receive a donation of £6.50 for every hour our volunteers work.
Here’s what previous volunteers have said about the scheme:
"I worked at Leeds Festival in August 2010, on behalf of the Peru Support Group, and it was great - the only way to go to a festival! I definitely prefer it to being a mere “civilian”: flush toilets, free meals and drinks, HOT showers, great bands, and you have loads of fun working the bars with people from all over the country!"
"I only knew three others who were going but by the end of the festival I had a great group of people to hang out with. Also, the staff who run the bars are incredibly helpful, experienced and just great people to be around. I would absolutely recommend this to any potential festival-goer this summer!"
Registration is now open for all the above festivals. To apply for a place please download and fill out the following form with your details. You will also need to scan and send us a passport photo for your festival ID and ask a tutor, manager or landlord to fill out a reference for you.
Please send the completed documents to firstname.lastname@example.org and do not forget to include details of which festival you wish to attend. To avoid disappointment we strongly recommend you send in the forms as soon as possible.
While we will try and accomodate your preferences please note that competition for places at some festivals is very intense. We may give priority to PSG members or those who have reliably volunteered for us in the past.
