Headline acts at the events include, Frank Ocean, Foals, Aphex Twin, Run The Jewels, Flying Lotus, Chase & Status, Bonobo, Two Door Cinema Club, Michael Kiwanuka, Laura Marling, and Grace Jones amongst a spectrum of other top artists.

Volunteering with War Child is the perfect way to embrace the festival spirit and there are over 600 stewarding opportunities available.

Those who take part will be the eyes and ears of the festival organisers, as well as providing information to festival goers, directing queues at box offices, manning emergency exits next to the main stage, and generally making sure everyone is happy and safe.

One of last year’s War Child volunteers said “I had an amazing time volunteering with War Child at Wilderness. It was such a unique opportunity to play a part in something so important, and raise awareness for children that really need our help. I made some great friends who I’ll stay in touch with and of course, saw some of my favourite bands. For free!”

At Field Day, Lovebox and Citadel festivals, volunteers are asked to complete a six-hour shift per day and receive free entry to the festival and a meal voucher per shift. A deposit of £40 is required for first-time volunteers and £20 for students and returning volunteers, which will be refunded following the event.

At Wilderness volunteers will be required to do three eight-hour shifts over the four festival days, with a meal voucher per shift and the chance to access the festival after each one, along with a day off to experience the event at their own speed. All volunteers will be needed at the Wilderness festival site from 2 – 7 August and will have access to the designated War Child camping area.

A deposit of £80 is required for first-time volunteers at Wilderness and £40 for students and returning volunteers, which will be refunded following the event.

For anyone wanting to sign up or know more – all information is on the War Child Website or on the War Child festival Facebook page .
