Stewarding at Festivals
Stewarding is a fantastic way to attend the UK’s biggest festivals, offering a chance to learn new skills, meet new people and see some of your favourite artists perform without the cost.
We’re on the hunt for friendly, personable event stewards for a range of UK music festivals throughout the year. You’ll be helping people get from A to B and making sure attendees enjoy themselves so you’ll ideally love spending time with others and have a fantastic sense of humour to boot. In return you’ll get an unforgettable experience seeing behind the scenes of your favourite festivals, with plenty of time to enjoy the event itself and an opportunity to make new, likeminded friends.
