Festivalsfor life

Volunteer at some of the UK’s biggest festivals, and help people worldwide to live their lives free from poverty.

What are you waiting for?

Become an Oxfam festival volunteer and make amazing things happen – not just for one weekend, but for life. Because every shift you do helps people all over the world to live their lives free from poverty.

You’ll discover a community of like-minded people who love festivals and want to give something back. You’ll also get all the training you need, secure crew camping, a meal voucher for every shift, hot showers, toilets, tea and coffee, and phone charging.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or new to camping and looking to do something different, you can join our volunteer team at music festivals across the UK.
