Be a Charity Concierge at Electric Picnic

Charity Concierge volunteers provide a drinks waiting service around the festival arena to help customers add a little luxury to their festival experience. As a Concierge you’ll never be left miles from the arena, guarding a gate for hours on end: Concierges are always found at the heart of the festival meaning you don’t have to miss your favourite acts even while volunteering. You’ll have a tangible and direct positive impact – the service is charged at a €6 donation, and every €12 you raise could pay for everything a child needs to go to school for a whole month.
