However, we kindly ask that you do not wear a Native American headdress due to their protected cultural significance.

Volunteer with us.

Volunteers will be required to work 2 x 6 hour shifts throughout the weekend and must have full availability for the duration of the festival and be on site from 9am Friday 19th August at the latest.

Volunteering roles include wristbanding guests at gates, stewarding campsites and general stewarding.

As the campsite will be open 24 hours, some shifts will be allocated during the night. We endeavour to give volunteers a fair spread of shifts. Shifts will be given during the volunteer briefing on the first day of the event on Friday the 19th of August.

The campsite will be accessible to volunteers from Thursday the 18th of August.

If you are successful in your application to volunteer at Otherlands you will be required to pay a £50 deposit. This will be refunded to the volunteer after the festival, providing both shifts have been carried out.

Volunteers will be provided with their festival wristbands for the following day once each shift is completed [e.g. If Fridays shift is missed, the volunteer will not be granted their Saturday wristband and will not be able to access the festival arena].

Volunteers will receive 1 food token per shift [2 in total].
