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!
Short Term Volunteer RolesWEEKENDERS - STEWARDS, BAR STAFF...
If you’re nifty with a swifty, got the gift of the gab, or frankly are just an ultra-nice human being, then grab yourself free entry to the most community-minded festival around and join our volunteer crew. We accept only the loveliest bartenders, stewards and customer service wonders here at Nozstock, and you could be part of that rather nice collective.
You’ll be asked to complete approx. 15 hours over the weekend, so frankly it’s a snip for the ticket, and you’ll get to make some of the best friends of your life.
If you’re camera savvy and fancy helping us document Nozstock this year then please cast your eye over our opportunities. You’ll get some great footage for your portfolio and work with a lovely team of up-and-comers. Make contacts, share ideas, and get shooting.
Please only apply for either a photographer role OR a filmmaker role.
