A look back at 2019

We took our biggest ever team of volunteers to six incredible festivals in 2019. Our brilliant volunteer teams delivered a range of water and sanitation services to help keep them running smoothly.

Good Loos

For the second year, our Good Loos provided four festivals with a unique toilet experience. We brought environmentally friendly, sustainable and memorable toilets with a chill out and engagement area to some of the best UK festivals.

Our volunteer teams helped keep our Good Loos clean between uses, engaged with festivalgoers about WaterAid’s work, and showcased Fempowered – our new sustainable period product.

Litter Picking

Returning to Boomtown for a second year, our dedicated team of litter pickers helped to keep parts of the festival clean and tidy, litter picking in the main arenas ensuring that as much waste as possible was sent for recycling.

Green Champions

Also at Boomtown were our Green Champions. Our teams helped to support the festival’s focus on sustainability by running new refill stations across the site - offering free water refills and selling the festival water bottles.

Eco-Shower Cleaning

Our eco-shower cleaners returned to Green Man for the second year running! Our volunteers moved between the shower blocks, cleaning and tidying the showers to ensure they were ready for the next person to use. We also had a team who showcased AR technology and talked to festival goers about the life changing impact of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.


It was a record-breaking year for WaterAid and Glastonbury - with our largest ever team of volunteers and the festival's largest ever number of water kiosks. Whether you were at the pyramid stage, refilling your water bottle or using the loos cleaned by our fabulous loo crew - you couldn't miss us.
