Creating the festival is the most exciting job for young people! Try new things, take responsibility for important tasks, see behind the scenes and have fun!
Set-up volunteers are given lunch every day, have access to soda and water and can grab a healthy snack in the office if they need it. For every day you volunteer you will receive a ticket for the festival.
Lots of help is needed so come for a few hours or come for the day!
