Become part of a festival crew and support the organization of a non-profit, free music festival in Stuttgart! Your international group will work together with many other local volunteers. The main tasks will be setting up the stages, stalls and tents on the festival site, as well as taking everything down again at the end. While the festival is running, your group of volunteers will assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. You will also have time to enjoy the festival yourself. But be prepared to to work long and unusual hours – and enjoy music! Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus. Your group might be asked to give a short presentation of the workcamp on stage.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

In the first two days, you will be hosted in a cultural centre in Stuttgart, where there is a kitchen and sanitary facilities. You will be sleeping in the building’s hall, where a stage is. We advise these first two days (Monday and Tuesday) for sightseeing. On the third day, you will move to the site of the festival. There you will be camping in a big tent, all together. Please bring your own camping mat and sleeping bag. You can also bring your own tent, if possible. Food will be available through the food stands at the festival, so you will not have to cook for yourselves. Sanitary facilities are provided, but be aware of very basic festival standards: only cold, outdoor showers available and limited privacy compared to “regular” accommodations!

Locatie en vrije tijd

With 600,000 inhabitants, Stuttgart is the state-capital of Baden-Württemberg. From museums, to castles and parks, to an afternoon spent shopping, this city offers something for everyone! Within a short train ride, you can also enjoy the variety of nature around Stuttgart. The city is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and hills. You can also visit some of the other towns in the area, like Tübingen (approximately 1 hour away) and Ludwigsburg (approximately 30 minutes away), both accessible by public transportation.


In summer, Stuttgart hosts a variety of music festivals and events. One of those festivals – called “Umsonst & Draussen” (free of charge & outdoors) – will take place close to the campus of the University of Stuttgart, outside the city centre. This year, the organisers are especially looking forward to running the festival again, after a two-year pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The festival will run for three days, from 5th to 9th of August ( It is the biggest non-commercial music-politics-culture festival in Stuttgart. “Umsonst & Draussen” is organized in a participative way, where everyone can come and take part. It has been running in that unique and quite anarchic way for over 40 years now! Since 2013, the festival has been hosting workcamps and the international volunteers have become an important part in the festival organisation. By helping to organize this communal festival, you are contributing to a sustainable and inclusive community (UN SDG 11).


Age: 18-26 - Please add a motivation letter to your application. We would like to know why you chose this camp in particular and what you expect from volunteering at the festival. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all volunteers need to be either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson) or recovered (date of infection must be at least 28 days old and max 90 days old).
