Hey thought i'd set up a forum for any Download volunteers! Always good to chat before hand. I've worked with both hotbox and festaff previously over the years it's so much fun!

Hey all - I'm heading to Download on the Wednesday as part of the Hotbox team! Great line up! Agreed.
Going alone - bought two tickets originally, but my partner isn't able to make it now, so thought I'd volunteer instead - keep me busy!

Is anyone driving from London? I'm willing to chip in for car sharing.

All the best for now!

Hey Guys,

First time coming to help out, coming alone from Edinburgh, may be driving if anyone wants to share a car.

Looking forward to so many of the bands, especially System, ADTR, Mastadon. The list goes on, also excited for NXT.

Hi everyone,

I would love to volunteer at Download Festival but I live in Belfast and have no car. So my question, though I guess it's rather unlikely: Is there anyone from Belfast volunteering this year?

Also I wonder if travel expenses are being refunded for volunteers?

Thank you!

As the last shift on Monday will be up until 17:00, I have a problem if that is the case. Buses only leave at 10.00 at the latest. Anyone driving from (and back to) London?

Would be great to sort out a car share for this.

Thanks all!

Hello everyone. I'm looking to jump in someone's car and share petrol costs if anyone is driving from London. Really looking forward to being part of the Hotbox team at Download. Ed

Hey EdFish. Good to meet ya. I'm travelling from London too - and am also looking for a car share partner. Looks pretty quiet so far though!

Just asked for my shifts essentially all to be worked around Simple Plan...fingers crossed!

Hi guys! Food-related question from an Italian..I guess clichés are true! Ahah

Since I'll be flying to download, I won't be able to bring any cooking utensils or stoves. So I was wondering: do you know if there's a supermarket within walking distance and if there is the possibility of borrowing/renting tools? Not looking for big fancy meals, just "survival" food!
