    I can find you the organiser's email address if you like?

    Yeah because they thought I wasn't pre registered. They said that I had registered with my main email address but had used my secondary email to apply. Yet all the emails they sent me went to my secondary so don't really understand it. Anyway it's sorted now luckily.

    To be honest I can't remember when I applied but I got an email saying they were full and then the next day another to say they had a cancellation and I was in. I'm sure if you email them they'll get back as they seem very good at communication. But I don't think I got an automated response first.

    Had an email from Shelter confirming my slot! Now need to decide between that and Poo Crew. Advantages and disadvantages to both so it's a dilemma. Poo crew seem a nice bunch on fb but well it's toilets. More hours but guaranteed day off during festival. And can drive there with booze. Shelter harder work unknown days and have to get the bus - what about booze? Hmm.

    I think the hours for poo crew are longer but at least you get a guaranteed festival day off and it's the best i've got at the moment. Shelter seemed to say you could have to work every festival day. And they still haven't replied to me.
  6. Yeah love Beans on Toast (now), though tbh the first time I saw him I didn't enjoy him but I think that was because it was Glasto 2016 and I was monumentally pissed off at the time by the mud and couldn't get into the tent and well, it just wasn't the time or the place. Then saw him last year at Bearded Theory in the sunshine and it was completely different! Sometimes, the time and the place can really affect how much you enjoy an act. That said, on the whole 2016 was probably the year I discovered the most new favourite bands who I still listen to.

    Good luck! I decided in the end not to apply - I didn't have any bright ideas for a video and lacked time to give it a decent go, and I wasn't 100% sure about being able to/wanting to do a second festival. And then I was offered Poo Crew so decided to go for that instead.

    You arrive Tuesday, work 7 hours Weds, Thursday and two of Friday-Sunday I think. But to be honest, I'm going on holiday tomorrow so have been really busy this week so need to read it all up more thoroughly. The main thing is one guaranteed day off over the weekend of the main festival AND she says she will take into account which day you'd prefer.
  9. The Poo Crew is but not Shelter - still waiting to hear that they agree that I was pre-registered! But if not, the Poo Crew it is!
  10. I can start enjoying this thread now! Got myself a volunteering job!

    I haven't heard anything from Shelter regarding them withdrawing my space as they thought I wasn't pre-registered. But I've got my Poo Crew space confirmed and they say they will invoice me in March to pay my deposit so all's well(ish). I don't know for sure that I would have chosen Shelter over Poo Crew as although bar work is more sociable etc I do think there's a danger of being rotaed every day of the festival whereas Poo Crew guarantee a day off over Fri-Sun. As I say, I don't know which I'd've chosen but I wish I knew whether I had the choice to make!
  12. Mine was a bit different in that they told me they had no record of me previously registering so were withdrawing my offer but to get in touch if this was a mistake and I was pre-registered. I have told them and sent them the email they sent me at 10 to say registration was live (which shows my email address) so hope they'll give me my place back! But what a cock up for everyone to be told they were successful and then be told they weren't.

    I think it was only last week but to be honest I can't remember! The email from them saying they were full was on 18 Feb and the one saying someone had dropped out was on 19th. The first said "All spots have currently been filled, however, there are always a few drop outs so there is still a chance that you may make it. I have put you in date order of application to be fair and I will email you again if you make it to the confirmed list." They seem very efficient at replying promptly too.

    Apply for Poo Crew - I was initially told they were full but was offered a space just a day later!

    I hadn't seen Kats' post - mine was slightly different as they said I"We did not have this email address on our records and this email is only for people who have registered their interest with us." but they did say to contact them if I had indeed registered so there's still a little hope for me. And of course I've been offered Poo Crews which is confirmed if I want it. So not as badly off as @Kats1891 and others. What an awful situation.
