About The Project

Suffering from a lack of festival funds? Finding that tickets are already sold out? Well, don't write off the 2010 music festival season just yet...

v has launched 'Summer of Give', a brand new initiative asking 18-25 year olds across the country to give their free time this summer to get the time of their lives for FREE at some of the UK's most sought after festivals. Starting with the Isle of Wight festival in June, we will then be going on to T4 on the Beach, V Festival, Relentless Boardmasters, with the final stop at Creamfields at the end of August.

The 'Summer of Give' campaign is all about getting young people to give their time in return for a free festival ticket. By giving just 4 hours per day to volunteering at the festival, we will provide them with their ticket and the opportunity to have an amazing time!

What Volunteering Opportunties are Available?

The 'Summer of Give' is offering two types of volunteering opportunties to 18-25 year olds at each festival.

Firstly, we are looking for volunteers with a special talent that they would like to showcase on the bigvbus. From music to fashion design, we are looking for volunteers to help us create a programme of events that will showcase the talents of young people.

Aspiring DJ's and bands could hit the top deck of the bigvbus and play a warm up festival set while promising photographers and writers snap, blog and tweet the festival scene. Graffiti artists and dancers could even hold master classes on-board - it's your call, just tell us what you can do.

That's not all, though: For any 18-25 year olds out there who want to get invovled but who aren't sure that they have a special talent, there are a whole load of spaces for Promotional Volunteers at each Festival. They will asked to give 4 hours a day to helping to spread the word about volunteering and in return, will receive their festival ticket for free!

And if none of that floats your boat, you can still visit for a whole range of other festival volunteering opportunties this summer.

How To Apply

All willing volunteers have to do head to, sign in and apply. Those that want to showcase their talent will be asked to tell us what skills they can uniquely offer for free at each festival location. Those that want to be a Promotional Volunteer just need to tell us a bit more about them and the volunteering they've done.

All volunteer applications will be judged by v’s ‘Summer of Give’ panel and those chosen will receive a free festival pass. Creative volunteers will also be given a dedicated performance space each day on the bigvbus.
