Want to go FREE to Electric Picnic? Volunteer applications are open


Let's face it, festivals can be pricey affairs.

From the ticket price to the outfits to the camping equipment, we'd do anything to cut down on an expense or two.

Luckily, Electric Picnic is offering volunteers the opportunity to work at the festival in exchange for free entry and access to all of the acts. 

'We are looking for weekend volunteers to come and help out at Electric Picnic 2017,' reads the application page.

'Volunteers play an important part in the festival, and they also gain entry to the festival in exchange for 24 hours of voluntary work.'

'The volunteer shifts can be split in to four six-hour shifts or three eight-hour shifts.'

The role will include being the 'eyes and ears' of the festival, assisting festival-goers with general queries, assisting in the campsites, directing production vehicles throughout the site, and working at wristband checkpoints

You can find out all of the information regarding the role here.

24 hours of wristband checking to get in to a three-day festival for free sounds like a pretty good deal to us.
