During the Event

Every one of us makes Nest - find out how!


By purchasing a ticket, you’re committing to participate in the ongoing creation of this community, along fundamental principles & guidelines.

There’s no aspect of creating our village that you can’t get involved with! Whether toting a radio with our heroic Ranger team, building essential infrastructure, greeting the Nestling arrivals, or creating décor and signage, volunteers are the lifeblood of our community, and the best possible way to immerse yourself in the Burn experience.


Rangering is an ideal way for newbies and old hands alike to et to know some new people! For a four-hour shift, you will be paired with another Nestling and will be in charge of patrolling the site, lending a hand to anyone who needs it. This may involve bashing in a stray tent peg, advising on the best way to dispose of rubbish, or simply pointing people in the right direction. You will always have an experienced Ranger Lead on call, as well as our on-site Security and Paramedic teams, in case anything more serious should occur. Watch this space for our sign-up sheet, closer to the time!

Build and Strike

Who puts all those amazing structures up, and takes them down again after you leave? The Build and Strike team, of course! You won’t find a harder-working group of people, and they are always looking for new recruits. Whether you have a relevant skill (carpentry, DIY, power or logistics), or want to learn, WE WANT YOU! Get in touch with vols@burningnest.co.uk for more information.

Gate Team

Where’s the party at? Baby, it’s at the Gate! Welcoming Nestlings as they arrive is rewarding and essential – who else is going to help out newbies who need to know where the loos are? You’ll be helping us give out wristbands, check tickets and direct Nestlings to the right place – first impressions count! Send vols@burningnest.co.uk an email for more information.
