Oxfam stewards Glastonbury

Tickets for Glastonbury 2024 have now all officially sold out following the re-sale, but there are still some ways to get into to this year’s festival.

Glastonbury will return to Worthy Farm between June 26 and 30 with headliners Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA, while Shania Twain will take on the legends slot at this year’s event (check out the full line-up with stage splits so far here).

Understandably, demand for tickets was fierce, with organiser Emily Eavis revealing that the event had its “highest percentage of paid ticket balances ever”. Never fear, though – Glastonbury wouldn’t be what it is without hordes of volunteers and paid staff to keep things ticking over. Find out about all the ways you could get into Glastonbury 2024 below.

Feeling lucky? A handful of competitions are running that could win you coveted tickets to Glastonbury 2024.

If you want to satiate your sweet tooth, raise some money for a good cause, and potentially get into Worthy Farm this June, head to your local Oxfam store. The charity is selling special edition bars of Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate – the Milk Caramel Sea Salt and the Dark Almond Sea Salt vegan flavours, to be precise – five bars of which will have a pair of Glasto tickets hidden inside. Visit here for more info.

Hard seltzer brand White Claw are also getting in on the competition game and giving away one pair of tickets to the festival. All you have to do is fill in the form here and keep your fingers crossed.

Finally, Clipper Teas is giving away five pairs of tickets to Glastonbury 2024 in its limited edition Glastonbury boxes, only available at Co-Op. Pick up a box and then type its unique code into the website here to win. Runners-up will get the consolation prize of a Glastonbury tea caddie.

Volunteer jobs

If you’ve been to Glastonbury before, you’ll have encountered many of the volunteers who help keep the festival running safely and efficiently. Note that with some volunteering opportunities, you might be required to pay the cost of your ticket as a deposit and be reimbursed the money after the festival.

Each year, Oxfam recruits a team of volunteer stewards to do everything from manning gates to working in its festival shop. You’ll need to work three eight-and-a-quarter-hour shifts, and you’ll usually get one morning, day, and night shift, so you won’t miss out on all the festival action. Places for Glastonbury 2024 are already full, so make sure you bookmark the volunteer site for next year.

Oasis Carnival also hire stewards and crew to work at the festival in exchange for a ticket. Positions are all taken for 2024 but will reopen in early 2025. Find more information here.

WaterAid has a big presence at Glastonbury, with volunteer staff manning drinking stations, cleaning and maintaining the sinks, taps and refill points, and keeping the many, many loos across the site clean. The charity also operates a clean-up team to help leave Worthy Farm spick and span. Applications are closed for 2024, but places might pop up before the festival, so keep an eye on the website.

If you have medical, paramedic or first aid qualifications, you can volunteer to be a part of the medical team on site. You can find more information about the Festival Medical Services and how to apply on this site.

Much like Oxfam, Festaff also hire a team of stewards each year to help out with wristband checking and other tasks. You’ll have to work three eight-hour shifts between Wednesday and Sunday. Find more info here.

Getting a spot on the recycling team is a little more difficult than just submitting your information. You’ll need to get a personal recommendation from someone who’s worked on the team before, and they have to contact the Recycling Crew office on your behalf. Find out more details here.

Get in the thick of the action by volunteering to work on one of the many bars that decorate Worthy Farm. Avalon Bars and Events provides training to chosen applicants who must be over 18. Applications are currently closed, but a waitlist should open for any last-minute spots after the recruitment period is over.

Paid jobs

Paid jobs at Glastonbury are few and far between but not completely impossible to get. If you don’t mind shepherding incoming cars in the car parks, CTM could be for you. Glastonbury currently isn’t listed on its vacancies page, but keep an eye out for any spots becoming available.

Newthorn also provides traffic services for the festival, with all staff except drivers getting paid. Email glastonbury@Newthorn.co.uk for more details.
