Free ticket, free meals, free camping & lovely yellow tabards… Sign up to volunteer!
Join our volunteering team for 2016.
Our specific role applications are now open. Every year we recruit enthusiastic and fun, festival-loving volunteers to join our team onsite. Earn a free ticket and experience the festival from the inside, with a range of opportunities from Stewarding to Stage Management, Artist Liaison to Litter Picking.
Although the festival runs from the evening of 31st August until the early hours of the 5th September, we require Outlook volunteers to work between 30th August and 6th September. Most roles are split into shift groups to enable Volunteers to plan their trip before their specific shifts are sent out in August. The shift group dates are:
Shift Group A: 30th August – 2nd September
Shift Group B: 1st September – 4th September
Shift Group C: 3rd September – 6th September
Roles without a Shift Group: 31st August – 5th September
Please note, all volunteers are required to arrived on site and be accredited the day BEFORE their first shift.
Volunteers will be asked to pay a £140 deposit (+ £12.50 booking fee), which will be refunded by 30th September 2016, on the successful completion of 3 x 6-8 hour shifts. *This may consist of 1 x 12hr and 1 x 6-8hr.* Any deposit refund queries must be made within two weeks of the deposit return date. Any queries made outside of this time will not be dealt with.

Volunteers are an integral part of the festival, and help create a safe, positive environment, and the community atmosphere Outlook is famous for.
Volunteering at Outlook is a great way to party on a budget, make new friends, and gain valuable work experience. Many return to volunteer year after year; and some have even become part of the team running the festival!
