Volunteers are an integral part of the festival, and help create a safe, positive environment and the community atmosphere our festivals are famous for.
Volunteering at festivals is a great way to party on a budget, make new friends, and gain valuable work experience.

Surrounded by the crystal clear Adriatic Sea reflecting a pristine sky during the day and when the sun sets and the sound systems begin to quake…the festival turns into a different beast!
