Hotbox Events Volunteer Interview with Harry Potts


Volunteers form an integral part of music festivals, helping to make sure that things run smoothly, and that festival goers have a fantastic time!

If you’d like to join us at RiZE you can apply to volunteer with Hotbox Events!

We’ve been chatting with Harry Potts who regularly volunteers at festivals with Hotbox to find out what volunteering at festivals is like…

Q. What made you first sign up to become a Hotbox volunteer?

A. I had wanted to go to festivals for a while before I found out about Hotbox but could never afford a ticket, but after reading more on volunteering I decided to sign up.

Q. What tasks were you helping with during your shifts?

A. Doing patrols of campsites, looking for hazards, standing on top of the fire towers, looking for hazards, being a point of information for people with questions and being a friendly face on camp.

Q. What’s your most memorable moment from your volunteering experience?

A. Working in guest camp at Download 2017 I got to meet some artists playing at the festival and their friends and family.

Q. What advice would you give to someone thinking about signing up to be a Hotbox volunteer?

A. If you’re thinking about volunteering with Hotbox I would recommend doing a festival to see if you enjoy it, since you’re getting your deposit back there’s no harm.

Q. What was the best part of being a Hotbox volunteer?

A. Meeting new people every shift and helping people have a great festival.
