The WaterAid website reads: "We're looking for another group of amazing volunteers to help us make this an unforgettable Glastonbury.
"From running water kiosks to cleaning toilets, whatever you do, you'll need to be prepared to talk to people about our work and encourage them to support WaterAid. By talking to festivalgoers, you will be engaging them to support WaterAid’s mission - to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere!
"Applications are open from 10am on 13 January until 5pm on Friday 7 February."
Other than Glastonbury, people can apply to work at Latitude, Camp Bestival, Boomtown Fair, Green Man and Shambala Festival this year.
The organisation, who has been teaming up with the Somerset festival for over two decades, does have some strict requirements for those wishing to apply, stressing that all volunteers must be 18+ at the start of the first festival they apply to.
Hi Ian, I'm afraid applicants must be 18 years+ at the start of the first festival. Applicants will be asked to confirm this on application, and will need to show photo ID on entry to the festival. Any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org - Thanks! 😁💦— WaterAid UK 💦 (@WaterAidUK) January 14, 2020
So far, two acts have been officially confirmed to headline the festival with The Beatles legend Paul McCartney topping the bill on the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night and Taylor Swift closing the Sunday night of the festival.
