If you cannot arrive in this window then please contact volunteering@arctangent.co.uk.

VOLUNTEER BRIEFING

A briefing will take place on Tuesday 13th August at 20:00. Please make sure you arrive before then. The briefing will inform you of everything you need to know about the festival and your duties as a steward. Part of the briefing will include a walk around the festival site.

The briefing ensures that ArcTanGent fulfils it's licence to operate. Anyone who misses the briefing will not be able to steward and therefore will not be able to enter the festival. If you are under the influence of alcohol you will be dismissed from the briefing and will not be able to steward.
 
UNIFORM

Stewards do not have a uniform but will be required to wear a hi-vis vest, which you collect when reporting for your shift and return when you finish your shift.

Please ensure you dress appropriately for the weather. Not all stewarding posts will have shelter, so consider wet-weather gear for the rain, sturdy footwear, and sunscreen and hats for the sunshine.

RULES

As stewards you are bound by the same rules as those who have bought a ticket to attend the festival.

BY SUBMITTING THIS FORM YOU AGREE TO ALL OF THE ABOVE.

You will receive an email closer to the festival with all the details required to undertake your stewarding role.

All of the information provided to ArcTanGent will be used for administration purposes only and will not be shared by any third party. Please consult our data policy for more information.

Volunteer T-Shirts

This year we are offering all of our volunteers the opportunity to purchase a unique ATG T-shirt (design tbc) that will not be available to the general public!

These T-shirts are available for £15, which will be deducted from your steward deposit. You will not be able to purchase these at the festival, as they will be printed to the pre-order amount. You will be able to collect these when you arrive on-site.

Please select your size from the dropdown menu. By selecting a size, you are agreeing that £15 will be deducted from your deposit return, which you will receive back after you have successfully completed your stewarding shift.

If you do not wish to order one now, but later decide you would like one, then please email us. Please note the cut-off for this is 19th July.
