Welcome to TGE Volunteer Registration
The Great Escape, 19-21 May 2016
Each year we offer over 300 volunteers the chance to gain first-hand experience of life working in the music industry with a variety of roles over the course of The Great Escape. We recruit in many different areas including Venues Assistants, Technical Production Support, Convention Production Support, Festival Runners, Delegate Registration, Artist Registration, Wristband Exchange... Our amazing volunteers are the reason The Great Escape continues to be such a successful festival for new music.
Why volunteer at TGE? This is a fantastic opportunity to take your first steps in the music industry, to make an impression on the industry, to be part of a leading festival recognised internationally. It’s also a place to meet new people, learn new skills and experience an event from the inside.
Benefits: TGE staff t-shirt, access to gigs, discounted prices at designated food concessions, TGE reference, invitation to closing party (provided all shifts have been completed), prize draw.
Requirements and Expectations: To be considered for a volunteer role, you need to be 18 by the 18th May 2016 and have the right to work in the UK. We are looking for people who are available for the 3 days of the festival from 19-21 May and can attend briefings & registration (expected to be on 18 May).
We are looking for volunteers who are committed and reliable. We expect you to be friendly and helpful, to keep us informed of any problems or issues, and of course to… ENJOY! It may be fast paced at times but it’s also lots of fun!
