Save The Arctic like a Rolling Stone at Glastonbury and other 2013 festivals

This year, Greenpeace returns to Glastonbury and it will be
massive! But we need a lot of help. Would you like to come with us? We’ll be
there with The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys, Dinosaur Jr., Django Django,
Phoenix and many other amazing bands are playing. So why not join the
Greenpeace crew and help save the Arctic?

But
Glastonbury is a big operation and we will need some help (we especially need build
and décor crew from early June until the festival opens, and other roles during
the event). Here's the list:

  • carpenters
    and builders,
  • painters
    and décor people,
  • caterers
    for crew and public,
  • campaigners,
    stewards, feature leaders,
  • and; much
    more besides.

Last year, we fought through
the mud to bring our Arctic scene, including “Paula”, our life size and very life like polar bear, to Latitude,
WOMAD, Wilderness and Thames festivals, collecting the support of thousands of
people who want to see the Arctic protected from greed.

This
year, our field at Glastonbury will become an Arctic landscape, in keeping with
the global campaign to save the Arctic. But that’s not all:

  • Our Arctic
    Dome will provide visitors with an amazing immersive Arctic experience that you’ll
    just have to see for yourself.
  • Our
    famous (and popular) on-site showers are back – this time complete with hot
    springs.
  • A
    farmer’s market will be there to serve healthy local food.
  • The Arctic
    themed skate ramp will keep things cool (puns ahoy).
  • An oil
    rig will show the darker side of the Arctic that you can climb as your protest.
  • Our explorer’s
    camp will form the centrepiece, representing the shrinking Arctic.  
  • And the Greenpeace
    Café will be a place where visitors will be able to hang out with us and learn
    a bit more about what we do and why we need help.

Our
festival season runs from June through to September. Though our plans are still
being finalised, we hope to take one or more of our features from Glastonbury
to other festivals too.

If you want to apply for Glastonbury or spend an incredible
summer season with us send an email to anne.cauvin@greenpeace.org and we
will more than happy to respond.
