I still have my Oxfam page-checker macro running throughout every day. No bites yet as it's still offering shop only but if that changes I should get an instant alert.

If anyone wants to join in let me know. 

How would I set one up for other festivals? Currently volunteering solo at Boomtown and a friend wants to join but stewarding places are sold out.

Poo Crew sounds like hard work in comparison to WA Loo Crew. I appreciate it is all relative and still shit blasting but was actually strangely OK last year on Loo Crew.  I found myself getting q

I am in! Haven't posted here since last years festivals missed out on ticket in main sale, and couldn't face the disappointment, but I got a place with Shelter! So stoked. Sorry to anyone who has miss

PM me if you want to have some warts and all insight into the WA experience.  I am not big on social media and am wary of posting loads on here as my gripes may not be a true reflection of the WA orga

My husband is still trying to get a place. How does this work, can we get in on it?

Interested in getting involved with this, if possible. I’m overseas so starting to feel something like this might be my only chance. how does it work?

I would like to join in, but have very little tech knowledge and only a phone. Is this possible?

No problem, I can add you to the SMS alert list. I just need a mobile number for the alerts to be sent to. Send me a PM on here and I'll set it up.

 

I won't take on any more people from here as i want to make sure it works well and (selfishly) give myself more chance of getting in first. Once I'm in I'll open it up some more.

Ha ha ... I understand that from setting up the watts app group and failing :)

Got the invoice to pay for Poo Crew today. It's payable by 16th so I would expect a few dropouts now and places to become available for those on the reserve list. 

What decision have you come to ? I'm down to waiting on PooCrew, WaterAid, and wether I can get an Oxfam place. I think I take whichever comes first if any.

I still haven't decided! I'm on holiday at the moment so will sit down and weigh it all up next week. I think a spreadsheet and some sort of marking system may be involved!  My head says Shelter but for some reason I'm favouring poo crew - I think it's because their communication seems so much friendlier!

Any chance you could add me

 

 

Edit-nevermind just saw you aren't adding anymore. If you do open it in the future let me know

Just got a rejection notification from Festaff  :(
"...level of applications this year has been unprecedented..."

Now reliant on Oxfam and Wateraid and the resale 

Well done to those who got in!

Just checked email and nothing from Festaff yet.

Keep the faith.

My boyfriend got a rejection email, but he does have a place with Oxfam.

I've not received anything 😔

I haven't got a rejection email (yet) so I've logged into my account and it still says 'applied' next to it. 

I'm hoping for good news?

It seems odd to do rejection emails first - if you had interviewed someone for a job, you wouldn't inform the unsuccessful candidates first before letting the successful one know. Seems like an odd move on their part.

If the festival goes ahead there will be LOADS of volunteer jobs available, especially at short notice. Trust me on this.

Do you think there will be tons of people dropping out at the last minute ? If it’s on, unless I’m sick there’s no way I won’t be in those beautiful fields

Okay that didn't take long. Rejected :(

 

my other application is still open though for the twinned event, have you guys cancelled your application for the sister event? It would have been a real stretch for me to do in terms of time off etc, but was something I was willing to do to get to Glasto. Now I don't want to annoy my boss by needing that time off if I don't need to, but on the flip side will this look badly on me for any future Festaff applications?
