Join us at Kendal Calling in 2024

Join us in the fields of Kendal Calling, a multi-award winning UK festival. Just look what you could be enjoying as part of the Festaff Team!

In 2023 we added bar staff to our list of volunteer options - we are working with our freinds at KC to make this happen in 2024 and us such have opened up applications again. Shift Times TBC. We have also added vehicle escort as an option - this will be in the main arena. 

Please note: once on site at Kendal Calling Music 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.

All our volunteer roles on site are light customer facing tasks and you will be fully supported by your Supervisors and the Festaff team.
You must plan and make your own way to and from the event. Free staff car park passes will be issued on arrival.

Strictly no campervans permitted for volunteer staff at this event. Camping only.
