Toilet Wizards — Festival Volunteers

Now closed to new applications

Toilet Wizard Volunteering: 6th – 20th July, with a few opportunities to start 2 days earlier on 4th

The Toilet Wizards are part of the Buddhafield site crew and tend the compost toilets before, during and after the festival. These toilets smell a whole load better than chemical portaloos and turn our poo into nutrient rich compost, which returns goodness to the land, without wasting water! Pooing in / tending to a compost loo will truly make the world a better place.

You will need to be willing to replenish toilet roll, hand soap and sawdust, give a few toilets a quick scrub and clean some sinks. There is also space to learn new skills, fire side sitting and singing, group check ins, game playing and daily meditations. We come together as a team, living side by side, not only to create and maintain the infrastructure of a festival, but to build a community and the atmosphere that Buddhafield is known and loved for.

We ask you to come and live on site with us from 6th – 20th July (with a few opportunities to start 2 days earlier on 4th), in your vehicle or tent, or under your tarp and bring your energy, willingness, physical labour, skills and ideas. In exchange we offer…

  • Your ticket to both events; Buddhafield Weekender 9th-11th & Buddhafield Festival 14th-18th
  • 3 meals a day
  • Meditation and Dharmic input, if you’d like it
  • All that community offers

We are taking applications for both the Buddhafield Weekender and Buddhafield Festival. Priority will be given to those who can be part of the crew for both events, however we appreciate not everyone will be able to make this commitment so on the application form please select one or both of the options:

  • 6th - 12th July (Buddhafield Weekender)
  • 13th - 20th July (Buddhafield Festival)

#### 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.
