We need your help to build the festival and take it down, therefore you will work before and after the festival. The festival lasts from 30th July to 1rst August where you will have the days off to enjoy it.
You will be part of a team of volunteers building the festival. It is manual work and it will be an advantage with knowledge of tools, but it is not required.
Your tasks will change from day to day, where you might help set up a stage one day, build a bar the next or carry fences. A team leader will instruct you on what to do.
All volunteers on our production team meet at 10 am every day and work until 6 pm. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided on workdays. During the festival, you will be given three food vouchers each day, which you can use in our main food stand to get a meal.
Our production team is unlike any other team in Alive Festival. Volunteers work together for a longer period and the spirit when building the festival is very cheery and exciting among the hard work. Many of our volunteers are returning each year to help set up the festival and they know everything there is to know about Thisted and Alive Festival.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Volunteers bring their own tents, mattresses and sleeping bags.
There will be toilets installed at the camping area and bath facilities, but it is also possible to use the bath and toilet in a building known as URT.
We are currently looking for other accommodation possibilities and we hope to find another solution for the volunteers in 2020. But as it is now it will be in tents – true festival style!
Kitchen + bathroom facilities:
In URT we have a common room, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served during the days you are working. In the evening, when all the work is done, you can stay in the common room if you want to play a board game or just to relax for a bit.
Our kitchen facilities will be preoccupied as soon as we start building the festival, so it will not be possible to cook for yourselves.
During the festival, the food will not be served, though you will receive food vouchers.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Alive Festival is located in Thisted, a small town in an area known for its national park essential for long walks and exploration. Not far from Thisted you will find the west coast also known as Cold Hawaii, famous for its surfing facilities.
The beach, wild nature and charming surrounding towns are essential for summer vacations.
For security reasons, we can unfortunately not have volunteers with hearing or sight disabilities. For other physical disabilities, it depends on whether the volunteer can do manual work for several hours since the work is about construction and is very physical.
We will advise you to bring warm clothes that are fit for outdoor work and might get dirty. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather, so it is a good idea to bring rain clothes too.
English will be the only language spoken. All participants must be willing to speak English, even though being from the same country or having troubles with the English language. Try your best!
