Crew Food (Before and After Festival) — Festival Volunteers

The crew food during the set up and tat down feeds all the crew it takes to put this amazing festival on. You'll be part of a team of 20 that chops veg, washes pots, 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.

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 a festival, but to creating the Buddhafield community for everyone.

We ask that you come and be with us 4th-24th July (with a few opportunities to come on the 1st July, in your vehicle or tent, or under your tarp, and bring your energy, generosity, skills, physical labour and your brightness. In return we offer

  • your ticket to the festival
  • 3 organic meals a day plus hot drinks/some snacks for the whole time you are onsite
  • meditation teaching and dharma input
  • an experience of living in close knit community on the land.

  A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on drink and 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, then we’d like this policy to be respected.
