We need volunteers for 2017
— send in your application today!
Working as a volunteer at the Guitar Festival is both fun and rewarding. You meet lots of new people and get a chance to experience the festival in a different way. By working on our festival you will get many good memories, new friends and the opportunity to learn a range of new skills and have experience of a lifetime. The volunteer does not mean that the work is unimportant, quite the contrary. As a volunteer, you need to take your work as seriously as any other work whatsoever. Our work is based on collaboration, the ability to act professionally and to have a genuine desire to give something good to others.
For your effort during the Guitar Festival and to show our appreciation, you get:
- Free entry to day activities (workshops, master classes) and concerts,
- At least one meal per shift (8 hours),
- A stylish festival t-shirt,
- Upon request a Certificate of employment,
- Entry to our Festival Dinner for artists, special guests and visitors, and
- A delightful experience with new contacts from all over the world.
At the festival in October, one can work as a volunteer before, during or after the festival. Those who
commit work 16 hours get free entry to two concerts, and those able to work 24 hours receive free admission to three concerts.
Uppsala International Guitar Festival also organizes concerts throughout the year, and the unique needs of
these events also require volunteers. Register your interest today so you will be contacted when your efforts are needed.
You get to choose between different services according to your interests, abilities and experience. On the next tab, you can read about the various volunteer positions.
For any questions concerning the work as a volunteer, please contact Rebecca Rikner (firstname.lastname@example.org) who is responsible for all the volunteers.
You are welcome to keep in touch with the festival through social media!
