The event is all standing and it is not possible to book seats, or to bring chairs to this festival.

Can we take our own chairs?

People tend to stand to watch the acts on the main stage. We therefore don't allow people to bring chairs into the site as it would be a safety issue.

Can we bring a wind break or sun tent into the arena?

No – In case of an emergency we would need to evacuate the arena as quickly and as safely as possible. Clambering over tents, wind breaks etc would hinder a fast exit and therefore put lives at risk.

I'd like to volunteer to help at Hardwick Live Festival?


We’re looking for friendly, enthusiastic people age 21 or over to be stewards at this year's Hardwick Live Festival. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who would like to get involved with the festival and experience what it’s like behind the scenes. The role of stewarding mainly involves giving information to the public at the event: it’s a really important position because you will be the main point of contact between the festival and the public, so we need lots of happy, smiley people!

We recruit people on a voluntary basis, which means that you won’t be paid anything, but you will get a free l ticket, plus one free meal. Since volunteer stewards are not on duty any longer than Five hours, this means that you’ll get time off to enjoy the event.* It’s really good fun being a steward – it’s sociable because you’ll get to meet lots of other like-minded people, and you’ll see some great music.

We can’t guarantee you will be able watch your favourite bands – it all depends on what shift you’re allocated!
