Posted on: 12th March 2024

Held at Bramham Park every August Bank Holiday weekend, Leeds Festival attracts around eighty five thousand festival goers, thousands of staff and some of the biggest names in music.  


Festival Angels started life at Leeds Festival in 2011 with the concept expanding to other music festivals over the years. In 2024 Festival Angels teams will be at over fifty festivals and events including Kendal Calling, Download, Parklife and thirty one gigs in Halifax's Piece Hall.


At Leeds Festival the volunteer teams will be running the popular Prayer Cafe, which will serve over fifty thousand cups of tea, coffee and hot chocolate over the six days of the festival. Alongside limited edition Festival Angel mugs, festival goers will be able to purchase Jesus Loves Festivals tattoos that prove highly popular amongst young people. 


Lost Property will be inviting people to pre-register mobiles to make it easier to contact friends of the owner if the phone is lost at the festival. The Lost Property team aims to reunite over 60% of the items handed in or found on the festival site with their owners. 


Detached teams will be out and about across the festival site offering support and assistance to festival-goers, similar to Street Angels who operate in many towns and cities. The detached team will also be manning Assistance, Information and Response hubs on some of the festival campsites. 


Volunteer Festival Angels are asked to sign up for twenty hours of volunteering over the week from Monday 19th August to Monday 26th August including involvement in the setting up and packing down. In return volunteers have access to the festival and a Festival Angels camping area with showers, toilets, kitchen and lounge.
