War Child, the charity for children affected by conflict, is calling for volunteers to join them at Wilderness festival and experience the event for free, while supporting the worthwhile cause.

Music fans can enjoy all that the award-winning festival has to offer, plus save on the price of a ticket, by signing up to become a volunteer at https://www.warchild.org.uk/festivals.

Set amongst the lakes, forests and parkland of Oxfordshire’s exquisite Cornbury Estate, Wilderness is regularly voted one of the best festivals in the UK. From 3 – 6 August, headliners Two Door Cinema Club, Grace Jones and Bonobo, plus First Aid Kit, Michael Kiwanuka and many more will be taking to the stage.

Whether fans simply want to experience the buzz and atmosphere of a festival or have missed out on tickets to see their favourite act – volunteering with War Child is the perfect way to embrace the festival spirit and support the charity.

War Child has 305 volunteer spaces at Wilderness as well as opportunities to attend more top festivals around the country. All of the roles are stewarding, and volunteers will be the eyes and ears of site organisers – from providing information to music fans, directing queues at box offices, manning emergency exits next to the main stage, and generally making sure everyone is happy and safe.

Wilderness is fast approaching so don’t miss this chance to get together with friends, meet new people and have fun while enjoying the incredible weekend.

Everyone who signs up will get free entry to the festival and a meal voucher per shift, on top of learning valuable new skills. Stewards will be required to do three eight-hour shifts over the four festival days – so will have one day off and can do whatever they like in the rest of their free time. All volunteers will be needed at the festival site from 2 – 7 August and will have access to the designated War Child camping area.

A deposit of £80 is required for first time volunteers and £40 for students and returning volunteers.

For anyone wanting to sign up or know more – all information is on the War Child Website https://www.warchild.org.uk/festivals or on the War Child festival Facebook page.

For volunteering enquiries please contact festivals@warchild.org.uk

I really hope some of you guys find this of interest, do let us know if you plan on working alonside War Child at Wilderness (and seeing Two Door, of course), we’d love to hear about it.
I hope you’re all well.

Lots of love,
Saoirse.

Hello everyone,
last week the guys finished their ‘2nd’ US Tour with a concert in New York, where they will return to in September in order to play at the Meadows Music and Arts Festival.


The band has quite a few festivals coming up soon, their first one being Big Weekend at the end of the month.

Ahead of this Alex took part in the BBC Radio 1 Piano Session which took place yesterday.
There he gave an incredible performance by playing Invincible, What You Know and a cover of Circa Waves song Goodbye.
I really recommend that you go ahead and check it out here.


If you want to watch more Acoustic/Live Sessions  by the band go check out our newly designed Video page!

Under Live Sessions  you will be able to find a different page for each year which includes all of the videos that I could find.

The other pages are still “under construction” for now, but will hopefully be finished soon!

If you find a video that you think should be added, don’t hesitate to contact me, I’d appreciate it.

Talk Soon,
Maybrit

Hello everyone,
the guys are currently in Canada continuing their North American Tour, but will soon return to the US where they have a second weekend performance at Coachella Festival.
This year they are one of the headliners, and they already performed one show last saturday on the main Coachella stage:


You can watch their performances of Sun and Bad Decisions, and those of other artists on the official Youtube Channel:


While there, they also gave two interesting interviews about Gameshow and touring which you can check out here and here.

On the topic of touring I’d like to point out that two of their supporting bands recently released new records: Anteros published their EP Drunk; and Blaenavon released their LP That’s Your Lot, I really recommend that you guys go and check them out, I’m sure you won’t regret it!
Today Anteros also released the music video for their song Cherry Drop which was shot during TDCC’s UK Tour by Phoebe Fox. It’s really beautiful I urge you all to go check it out, you can even spot the guys sometimes 😉
