If you’re inspired, enthusiastic and up for a challenge then we want to hear from you! As Herefordshire’s favourite homegrown boutique festival we’re seeking talented volunteers to support the creation and development of this diverse and innovative event with the community at its heart.
Nozstock is a ten-stage festival – we’re proud of our grassroots and want to keep the treasured atmosphere from our overgrown party days while making sure we offer a festival experience that jostles with the big beasts! We’re family-run on volunteer power with an amazing culture – all our crew bring something unique and share satisfaction in putting on a good time for our punters and of course, for ourselves…
Whether you’re interested in volunteering just to get in free to see the amazing line up over the weekend, or if you are looking for something more involved to add wealth to your experience, we could have the opportunity for you so take a look at the roles on offer below. Nozstock has spawned some incredible talent – folks who began their humble roots here on the farm and are now working at some of the largest festivals, arts organisations and agencies in the world. Come, join the fold!
