Staff in environmental health jobs may be able to attend a music festival for free if they are willing to do some volunteer work.
According to Elisa Bray, a journalist at the Independent, going to festivals is an expensive experience nowadays, meaning that more people are opting to work for free at the site in exchange for a chance to see their favourite bands.
She explained that Reading and Leeds festivals offer volunteer environmental health, stewarding, recycling and campsite assistant roles.
"All volunteers, in exchange for three eight-hour shifts, are given a free ticket, crew pass, pack and uniform, camping in a secure crew area, access to the crew cafe, bar, toilets, showers and a souvenir T-shirt," Ms Bray added.
This year's Reading and Leeds festivals take place between August 27th and 29th 2010, with headliners including Arcade Fire, Blink 182 and Guns N' Roses playing at the two sites over the course of the three days.
