This year we are also offering roles for wristbanders on the gates, as well as the usual stewarding roles.
Please note: once on site at the Isle of Wight Festival you are required to be on volunteer shift where and when required by the Music Festival promoter and Festaff management. You will be advised as far as possible of volunteer shift patterns, etc. in advance of the music festival but we cannot be 100% accurate of all that is required until on site. Please bear this in mind.
