Crew Food (Before and After Team) — Festival Volunteers

The “Crew Food (Before and After Team)” APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN AGAIN.

This year we are holding main Buddhafield festival from 13th - 17th July. Kitchen crew who wish to support the setup crew with food will be arriving from Wednesday 29th June, up until the festival (29/06-12/07) and the tat down (18/07- 24/07).

The crew food during the set up and tat down feeds all the crew it will take to put these events on. You'll be part of a team of 20 that chops veg, washes pots and plates, serves food, and tends the fire that heats our hot water. All the food is vegan, organic, and mostly wheat free. 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, games, and 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 29th June through to 24th July with your full camping kit or live-in vehicle, and bring your energy, generosity, skills, physical labour and your brightness. In return we offer

  • your ticket to the festival
  • 3 organic vegan meals a day for the time you are onsite
  • Snack table accompanied with hot drinks for the time you are onsite
  • meditation teaching and dharma input
  • an experience of living in a close knit community on the land.

  A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on alcohol and recreational drugs, as described on the Festival overview page.

We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying! And 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 work with us and are accepted, then we’d expect this policy to be respected.
