Festival Super Crew Guide 2023



Ahoy Sparkle Superstar!

Thanks for your interest in joining the State of Disarray 2023 Festival Tour. 

We're looking for fun, friendly, reliable and resilient humans, with strong face to face sales skills, and a proactive work ethic, to join our Dream Team at the UK's hottest festivals.

WARNING! A season in the State of Disarray is not for the faint-hearted!

Crewing the Good Ship Disarray is an epic experience!  It’s exhilarating, exhausting, fun-filled and fabulous, it’s outrageously exciting and occasionally overwhelming. It’s tough and intense at times, but most of all it’s an empowering summer spent soaked in sparkles and surrounded by exceptional humans.

This is How we Roll,

Build & Break:  One full day’s work to set up before the event, and one full day's work to pack down after the event. This involves both heavy lifting and manual labor to help build and break the displays, stall structure and the crew camp, even in turbulent weather conditions. 

Show Days: Four ‘live show’ days with fixed shifts on a very busy shop floor. This is a demanding sales role which requires high-energy, enthusiasm, and confidence to engage our customers in an uplifting and enjoyable manner, while you successfully close sales and ensure the shop is ship shape, spruced and spotless.



2022 Festival Tour Dates: 

* Crew must be available for the whole event including the set-up and pack-down day.

  • Glastonbury:  Tues 20th June - Mon 26th June.  (2 places Available) 
  • Secret Garden Party:  Wed 19th July - Mon 24th July.  (2 places Available) 
  • Wilderness Festival:  Wed 2nd August - Mon 7th August. (Fully Booked) 
  • Shambala:  Wed 23rd August - Mon 28th August  (Fully Booked)  
NOTE: Crew must arrive on-site at the festival well before accreditation closes, the evening before they begin their first shift. Accreditation gate opening and closing times are TBC.

Preference is given to applicants who can commit to the most events and/or have the most relevant sales experience/transferable skills.  

We favor applicants who genuinely love our products, support our brand and enjoy dressing up.  If you are new to Disarray then welcome to the family! Get familiar with our brand on Instagram and Facebook and learn about our products , ethics & values and behind the scenes blog on our website.   

Disarray You better Don’t

Despite our name’s sake, we run a tight ship in Disarray. If you have landed here in search of an easy 'in' to a party, then sorry Superstar, this isn’t the right route.  While your time off at the festival is yours to do with as you please, Disarray crew must be sober, rested, well groomed, on form and looking fabulous at the start of each shift.

While we LOVE a good disco on our nights off in Disarray, and may sometimes celebrate smashing a shift with a glass of fizz or two, attempts to pull-off an ‘up all night’ session and then sail straight into work, will not be tolerated by the captain or your fellow crew.  

Disarray You Better Do

Festivals are what we do best. What sets our flagship stall apart from the rest is our commitment to providing an unforgettable shopping experience for all the right reasons.  Whatever the weather, we overcome obstacles as a team, and always bring our ‘A’ Game. 

These are desirable paid roles in the fashion, retail and specialist events sector, which can also serve as excellent opportunities for fellow makers, designers and aspiring small business owners who want to learn the ropes, improve their sales skills.

We offer the unique chance (often only available to unpaid interns), to get your paw in the door, and experience the reality of what it takes to succeed as an independent slow-fashion brand…. In a field…and sometimes in a week-long thunder storm.
