I got this earlier this week:
We’re giving you the chance to volunteer at the world’s most famous festival, with plenty of time to see your favourite bands and have fun! Here’s everything you need to know… When can I register?
Tuesday 18 Feb at 10am. We’ll send you the link to this email address. What will I be doing?
You’ll be working in a team at one of the bars, pouring and serving drinks. Most of your co-workers will also be volunteers, so the environment is always fun! Do I have to pay a deposit?
Yes – £300 is payable by card when you register. But you’ll get this back in full (up to 6 weeks post festival) as long as you complete all of your shifts. Why do I have to pay a deposit?
If someone volunteers for Shelter but doesn’t show up to their shifts, we get charged. By taking a deposit it means that we, and the people we support, don’t lose out. So if I get my deposit back in full, how does Shelter receive money?
The lovely people at Avalon Bars & Events donate money to us for every volunteer who completes three shifts. So you get to go to Glastonbury, get your £300 back, and help us receive a donation to help families find a proper home. Win, win, win! Do places go quickly?
Very! In 2019 all our places went in an hour. This year, we expect them to go even faster. Will you remind me that registration is opening?
Don’t worry, we’ll send you an email as soon as registration goes live at 10am on Tuesday 18 Feb.
We've received the largest interest we've ever had this year, it's important we make the process as fair as possible for everyone. Please don't share this email with anybody or share the link. If somebody signs up and isn't on our interest list, we'll refund them their £300 immediately. I hope you can understand this is to make the process fair for everyone.

Thanks - and good luck!
