Join us at Bestival in 2018
Roll up, roll up, step this way and be amazed! The theme for Bestival this year is "the most magical show on earth", celebrating 250 years of Circus on the Lulworth Estate. So run away with us and join the circus for a fun-filled, eccentric, diverse and surreal weekend at a brand-new showtime: 2nd–5th August 2018.
The line up for this magical event includes London Grammar, M.I.A, Grace Jones, Plan B, Chaka Khan, First Aid Kit, and many more!
Info point personnel: all shifts will be between 8am and 8pm on shows days, so the big acts will be missed in the evening.
Bus/train stewards: some shifts will be 9am-5pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Please note: once on site at Bestival 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.
You must plan and make your own way to and from the event. Free staff car park passes will be issued on arrival.
