Join us at Common People in 2018

Following another sell out year, Common People returns on May Bank Holiday (26th & 27th May) to South Park, close to Oxford's city centre. Come and join the brilliant Bank Holiday bonanza. Line-up is another generous helping of great acts! James, The Jacksons, The New Power Generation, Ride, Maximo Park, and many more...

This is not a camping event and volunteers will need to source their own overnight accommodation. There is no food allowance at this event. As such, the deposit for the event is £10 and the admin fee is £10, so £20 in total.

Shifts will finish at 6pm each day, so you will have plenty of time to see the headline acts.

Please note: once on site at Common People 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. There is no staff parking available.
