Become a steward!

Do you want to enjoy IVFDF for cheap and get a free exclusive T-shirt, whilst helping the festival to run as smoothly as possible? Then consider signing up to be a steward for the weekend! In return for donating a number of hours of your time to the festival you will be refunded your festival pass and gain a free steward-exclusive T-shirt.

Stewarding can be a great way of meeting new people, especially if you’re planning on coming to IVFDF alone. Most stewarding duties are not very strenuous and allow you to enjoy an element of the festival whilst helping us.

In order to apply to become a steward you have to purchase a weekend ticket and fill up this form to sign up. At the end of your shifts your ticket purchase discount will be refunded.  If you have any queries about stewarding at IVFDF 2014,  please email .
