Volunteer - 2017

Without volunteers there would be no Urkult! Every year about 600 volunteers works together to create the festival. In exchange to a festivalticket, some food and campsite (on the camping for volunteers) you work 12 hours, or more if you like, during the festival. The hours are usually divided in 2-3 shifts.

Every volunteer will be placed in a workgroup, for example the "recycling group", "entrance group" or "pancake group". Every group has one person (or sometimes two) in charge. When the work schedule is set the person in charge of your group (or the volunteer co-ordinator) will send the schedule to you by e-mail, along with other information. Many of the groups has an introduction meeting for all their volunteers before the festival starts (often on thursday, some groups earlier), if so there will be information about time and place for the meeting as well in the e-mail. We require that you are entirely sober during your shifts.

The co-ordinator for the volunteers start to work in the middle of June but answers emails already during spring. We start to sort volunteers into the workgroups from week 26, the ones who applies first will get sorted first. Often we are in need of more volunteers even until the last days before the festival.
If you have any questions please send them to volontar@urkult.se
