Looking for Taylor Swift Eras Tour tickets?

Thursday, July 4, 2024

Getting gig FOMO? No-one likes to miss out when there aren't enough tickets to go around, or if they're way out of your price range.

Although we can't help you get to see Taylor Swift at the Eras Tour, we can help you see other incredible female artists this summer, without it costing you a penny!

From Taylor's bestie Lana Del Rey at Reading and Leeds, to Paloma Faith at Camp Bestival Dorset and Camp Bestival Shropshire there's some amazing talent touring the UK festival scene this summer, and you can be a part of it!

Once you've applied to volunteer with us you'll get to select your shift preferences before each festival. So whether you want to see Caity Baser, Baby Queen or female-fronted London Grammar at Latitude, you can make sure you're off-shift for the bands you'd like to see!

In case you missed the recent announcement, TikTok sensation Dasha has just been added to the Reading and Leeds Festival line up, joining Renee Rapp, The Last Dinner Party, Jorja Smith, Kenya Grace and Raye with another must-see set!

If you want to take a few minutes away from the main stages, Sara Pascoe, Jo Brand, Judi Love and Joanne McNally are the all-female headliners of a packed line up taking to Latitude Festival's comedy stage. They'll be joined by Rosie Jones, Lucy Beaumont, Nina Conti and Grace Campbell so if you fancy it you can pitch up under the comedy tent's canopy to shelter from the sun all day!

Want to bring your pals along? Not a problem, add their names and email address to the Friends section of your Hotbox Events PAAM Profile when you sign up and we guarantee you'll have the same shift pattern as your mates at the festival!

Thinking about volunteering solo? Over 50% of our volunteers come on their own, it's very easy to make friends with other volunteers on shift and around the Hotbox compound so you won't be alone for long!

Deposits are refunded in full after the festival, and we don't take any admin fees! This means you can go to every festival this summer without it costing you a penny!

Volunteering places are about to fill for this summer's festivals - don't miss your chance to be there and apply now!
