This year we are holding the main Buddhafield festival from 12-16th July.
Kitchen crew who wish to support the setup will be arriving from Wednesday 28th June up and working until the festival (28th June - 11th July) with the festival off and then working for tat down (17th July - 22nd July).
During set up and tat down, the kitchen team feeds all crew onsite. You'll be part of a team of 20 that chops veg, washes pots, serves and cooks food. Jobs are rotated throughout. All the food is vegan, organic (where possible), and wheat-free (unless stated). We work fluidly assigning tasks in the morning meeting with a chance for space during different parts of the day. To volunteer, you need to be prepared to adhere to our guidelines.
As well as kitchen tasks, there is also space for Dharma study, meditation, ritual, fireside sitting and singing and games. Each day we will have a group check-in to start the morning. We grow and build a team over the days, through working and living together, contributing not just to the practical side of building an event, but to creating the Buddhafield community for everyone.
We ask that you come and be with us 28th June through to 22nd July with your full camping kit or live-in vehicle. Please bring your energy, generosity, skills, physical labour and your brightness. In return we offer:
All Buddhafield events are free from recreational drugs and alcohol
We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying. If this would be a new way of experiencing a festival for you then why not give it a try?
However, please bear in mind that if you choose to apply to work with us and are accepted, then we expect this policy to be respected.
