Site Crew Volunteering: 27th June to 24th July 2021
The Buddhafield site crew gather together in July to put up tents, plumb the site, meditate together, set up the off grid power supply, play games, maintain the site, live side by side and begin to create the atmosphere that Buddhafield is known and loved for.
There is a fair amount of physical labour and there is also some gentler work, space to learn new skills, fire side sitting and singing, group check ins and daily meditations. We come together as a team, not only to raise the infrastructure of a festival, but to build a community.
We ask you to come and live on site with us from 27th June - 24th July 2021, in your vehicle or tent, or under your tarp and bring your energy, willingness, physical labour, skills and ideas. In return we offer…
#### Message about 2021 Festival Volunteering
Buddhafield is working closely with the local licensing authority to make sure our two events, Buddhafield Festival and Buddhafield Weekender, can go ahead safely. We expect that certain restrictions will be in place in order for these events to go ahead.
Before you apply for a volunteering position, we ask that you consider whether you will be comfortable following whatever restrictions are in place as per current government guidelines at the time of the events. This could include, but is not limited to, extra handwashing, social distancing, face masks, no snack provision and extra rules around mealtimes etc.
If you will find this difficult then this year might not be the year for you and we look forward to having you back as a volunteer when we no longer need to follow these restrictions.
#### 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.
