Our volunteers are instrumental in making Wilderness into what it is and we would love to have you join us. We offer loads of different volunteering opportunities, across all our departments and all of them give you amazing first hand experience of what it’s like to work on a festival. You will be required to pay a deposit of £150 via PayPal that will be refunded upon completion of all your shifts.

Programming Assistants
Assisting the Programming Team with various tasks across the festival venues, including but not limited to, backstage work, stage resets, artist riders and artist liaison.

Info Tent Staff
Engaging with people from all aspects of the festival, providing an important directory service and hub for enquiries and gaining in-depth knowledge of the festival as a whole.

Build Crew

Wellbeing Staff
Ranging from reception to info and venue staff this is a great role for anyone with an interest in wellbeing and, in particular, large-scale wellbeing events and how they’re organised.

Banquet Staff
With a line-up as important as our music, get first-hand experience of what it takes to deliver fine-dining to a mass audience, outside the safety of its regular setting.

We partner with Oxfam to provide our stewarding service. As a steward, you’ll be part of a large team representing Wilderness and Oxfam to the festivalgoers. You’ll provide essential roles on site to ensure the festival runs smoothly and the festival-goers are safe.
