You will also welcome the artists as well as the visitors during the festival and be in charge of the car park, catering of the artists and the stands "Refreshments" and "Catering» for the public. You will be accompanied by two camp leaders throughout your stay.
Your place of life will be shared with the volunteers of the festival on the municipal gymnasium in Blesle, which is located in the centre of the town. You will be sleeping on mattresses, on the mezanine level, which will be booked for you. You will have access to the gymnasium's changing rooms, showers and toilets. The group will be sharing the cleaning chores and preparing meals with the other festival volunteers.
Blesle is a village with 600 inhabitants located in the Haute-Loire Department (Auvergne region). It is located 70 km away from Clermont-Ferrand city, in a very beautiful valley called Allagnon. The town is full of charms, with remarkable historical and architectural features, and it has been voted as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It is especially popular with tourists and it’s a friendly and calm place where you can experience life close to nature without being too far from local amenities. For more information, you can take a look at: http://aperos-musique-blesle.com and http://www.tourismeblesle.fr.
Blesle's annual music festival is celebrating its 17th birthday. Participate to the festival's most exciting moments, from setting up the venue to celebrating the festival's closing evening with fireworks and a brass band! With a backdrop of old stone buildings, the association which organizes the festival wishes to treat the audience with a special musical experience. In a welcoming and family-friendly atmosphere, around 30 groups and more than 100 artists will be invited to perform in several locations during 3 days (from August 10th to 12th). The program is eclectic and open to the wider public: concert, jam-sessions, “musical walking tours” and workshops. The volunteers will arrive early in order to help with the organization of the festival and to reinforce the international dimension of this event. The festival will take place in a particularly charming environment (Blesle is one of the most beautiful villages in France).
