Cup Stock Staff required for Boardmasters – Newquay

Boardmasters is the UK’s biggest surf and music festival. The festival brings together 50,000 like-minded souls with a love of music, surfing, wellbeing and the outdoors for five days on the Cornish coast. The festival takes place across two stunning sites in Newquay, with over 200 artists playing across 12 stages at Watergate Bay. From international headliners through to breaking acts, the bill is an eclectic mix of genres covering songwriters, indie, pop, grime, D&B, house, rock and more. There’s something for everyone. 2020’s lineup will feature headline sets from Skepta, Kings of Leon and The 1975. As well as catching live sets, festival-goers can take part in Cornish language sessions, see a comedy show or chill out in Zennor Haven. Born from a Cornish folklore, the festival’s dedicated wellbeing area hosts daily yoga classes, workshops, reiki and even an eco spa. 

You will need to be on site for either the Thursday or Friday. You need to make your own way to/from the festival. You will be working just 2 or 3 x 6-10 hour shifts, you will have time to enjoy the festival when you are not working.

You will be working as a Stock Runner, moving stock of recyclable cups around the festival – you must be fit & strong.
