Glastonbury is always a highlight in our calendar, and we feel so privileged to have this very special partnership with the festival.

While we’re disappointed that this year’s festival has had to be cancelled, we’re excited to be involved in the Glastonbury Family Campsite over the summer, and Live at Worthy Farm this May. We’re also looking forward to working with the team to bring the best event we can in 2022.

Glastonbury Family Campsite

The team at Glastonbury has been granted a licence to host a family campsite at Worthy Farm for six weeks over this summer – and we're excited to be taking volunteer teams along! We'll be helping to provide water, sanitation and hygiene services, as well as working with our friends from Glastonbury’s joint charities (Oxfam and Greenpeace) on a few very special projects...

We'll be taking teams for 5-6 days at a time:

  • 20 July – 26 July 2021
  • 27 July – 2 August 2021
  • 3 August – 9 August 2021
  • 10 August – 16 August 2021
  • 17 August – 23 August 2021
  • 24 August – 30 August 2021

We initially only opened applications to people who applied to volunteer with us at any festival last year. We're now reviewing these applications, and will be in touch with everyone who applied by mid-June at the latest.

Register your interest in volunteering at Worthy Farm, and we'll let you know if we open applications more widely.

Live at Worthy Farm

For the first time in Glastonbury’s history, music fans from around the world will be able to share a unique journey through the festival together on Saturday 22 May, with acts including Coldplay, Damon Albarn and HAIM – plus some surprise guests – performing as part of a five-hour global livestream.

The ticketed livestream will help to secure the festival’s return next year, as well as supporting Glastonbury’s three main charitable partners, Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid – and as ever, we are so grateful to Michael and Emily Eavis, and the entire Glastonbury team, for their ongoing support of our work.

Glastonbury 2022

2022 will be a huge year for Glastonbury and for WaterAid, and we’ll welcome everyone to apply to join us next year. Applications will open at the start of 2022 – to be the first to hear when they go live, register to receive festival volunteering updates or join the WaterAid Festival Volunteering Facebook group.
