Get Into Latitude For Free!

Get Into Latitude For Free!

Organisers of the Latitude, Reading and Leeds Festivals are calling for volunteers for this year's events, and in return for a few hours helping out you can qualify for a free ticket.

150 volunteers are required for the first time at this year's Uncut-sponsored Latitude Festival which takes place at Henham Park in Suffolk from July 17-20.

Volunteering work ranges from helping festival goers with directions or putting up tents, to reporting back any problems with facilities to site management.

All volunteers are supplied with uniforms and rewarded with free entry to the festival, access to the crew food areas and have their own crew camping area.

The Reading and Leeds Festivals on August Bank Holiday weekend are also looking for volunteers, 500 at the Reading site and 350 at the Leeds site. As this fetsival sold-out within hours, volunteering could be the only way in this year!

There are a few rules though! Applicants must be over 18 and be able to arrive at the festival sites by midday on the Wednesday prior to the events.

Volunteers must be available to work three eight hour shifts at any time between 2pm on Wednesday and 4pm on Monday across the weekend event. Volunteers are also asked to provide a refundable deposit on the ticket price.
