We’re looking for friendly, enthusiastic people age 18 or over to be volunteers at Green Man 2021. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who would like to get involved with the festival and experience what it’s like behind the scenes. There are several volunteering roles available.

The application process is slightly different this year. There are 4 areas of the festival where you can volunteer, they are listed below. You will be asked to prioritise which areas you would like to volunteer in.

  • Stewarding –The role of stewarding mainly involves giving information to the public at the event: it’s a really important position because you will be the main point of contact between the festival and the public, so we need lots of happy, smiley people!
  • Litter Picking – keeping Green Man green, by picking up rubbish and sending it for recycling. Litter picking is a worthwhile task that is essential to make the festival a safe and pleasant environment for everyone to enjoy. It can be hard graft and occasionally mucky, but a good team spirit always develops, and it can be great fun.
  • Accessibility Stewards – providing information and assistance disabled customers. Like stewarding, you will be the main point of contact between the festival and the our disabled customers, so we need lots of happy, smiley people!
  • Camp Kitchen – helping the team prepare hot drinks and snacks for festival volunteers and crew. The camp kitchen runs 24hrs throughout the festival, it provides a welcoming space for crew to relax, charge their phones, and get hot drinks and snacks througout the event.

To volunteer at the Green Man Festival you must be 18 before the 15th August 2022. We ask all volunteers to complete 20hrs of shifts at the festival, all volunteers receive a ticket to the festival, camping in crew camping and a hot meal after every completed shift.

To complete the application form you will need to upload a passport style photo and if you are a new volunteer you will need the email addresses of two referees.

To volunteer at this event you must pay a deposit which will be refunded on successful completion of your three shifts. At the end of this application form you will be redirected to PayPal. If for some reason your payment does not go through you can return to to try again. This year if you are paying the £210 or £100 deposit, you will have the option to split this payment into instalments (only available until end of March).

New Volunteers or those who have not volunteered the festival since 2009 - £210
Volunteers who have volunteered one year since 2009 - £100
Volunteers who have volunteered two years since 2009 - £75
Volunteers who have volunteered three years since 2009 - £50
Volunteers who have volunteered four years since 2009 - £25
Volunteers who have volunteered five years or more since 2009, your good name is your bond

If you are a new volunteer, you will be expected to be on-site for registration before 5pm on Wednesday 17th August and the last shifts are allocated up to 7pm on Monday 22nd August. Shifts cover a 24-hour period, so it is possible you could be allocated a night shift. We will try to let you know your shifts by Sunday 17th July and you are free to leave site once you have been signed off by a Volunteer Manager on completion of your third shift.

If you have volunteered at the Green Man Festival since 2009 you can arrive later Wednesday evening as long as you are available for a briefing before your first shift.

Creative ideas are the very fabric of Green Man! Ok so we book a lot of this ourselves, but we're always open to new ideas… do you have any? Maybe you're an installation artist, or a filmmaker, or a scubadiver… it doesn't matter — if you've got some fun ideas to share then feel free to do it.

If you have some thoughts about how an earth your idea could take place, all the better (and all the more likely that we'll be able to help you make it happen). Don't be shy, try us.

Science stall applications are now open, other applications will be live soon.


Einstein’s Garden Science Stalls

Applications of Science Stalls are now live please apply here

Einstein’s Garden is Green Man’s area for creative engagement with science, nature and technology. Each year we curate a lineup which fuses performance, art, music and research to bring the world around us and our questions about it to life in the most wacky and wonderful ways.

We’re on the lookout for organisations, research groups, and any other science/nature/technology-minded folk that would like to bring a stall to Einstein’s Garden with the aim of engaging festival audiences with their work. Your stall will explore any aspect of science or tech research, nature, curiosity or questions about the world around us, which you’ll bring to life in a unique way to amaze and engage our audience of thousands.

Stalls should include as much interactivity and participation as possible. Rather than giving out leaflets or bringing roll-up banners, think about how your stall can be visually striking and offer an activity that will attract people within a festival environment.

More information about Einstein’s Garden and what we look for in collaborators can be found here.

The deadline for these applications will be at midnight on Thursday 28th April 2022, applications submitted by this time will be considered and advised of their outcome during May 2022.

Any questions regarding the application should be directed towards
