RETHINK Folk Music Festival calls for volunteers!

From the 26th of June to the 2nd of July you have the opportunity to volunteer at Rethink Folk Music’s spectacular festival taking place in scenic surroundings at Himmelbjerget. The festival concludes the last three years efforts with rediscovering and rethinking local folk music – both nationally and internationally.

As a volunteer you can have several different tasks: setting up/getting ready for the festival (on the 26th – the festival starts on the 27th), bar-shifts, assisting in the kitchen, cleaning/tidying up, stagehands, making coffee and, in general, creating a nice atmosphere for the young participants on the festival.

We expect we are going to need 50 Rethinkers all in all – depending on how many days each of you can participate. The shifts will be both daytime and evening, and we prefer that our volunteers can participate for at least one whole day, so you can take part in the volunteer meeting taking place every morning from 8.30. Volunteers can expect at least 2-3 shifts a day (each shift is 2-3 hours).

We offer our volunteers accommodations (indoor) and three meals a day, on the days that you are working. Volunteers will stay at Limbjerggaard close to the festival.

As a volunteer you will get a unique opportunity to experience folk music concerts (maybe even play along?) by some of the leading folk music bands in Denmark and Europe. You will have the opportunity to experience both the public concerts Friday to Sunday and the more “exclusive” concerts for participants only during the week. When you are not working, you can participate in workshops, activities like all other participants.

The festival grounds (workshops, accommodations, dancing and concerts Tuesday-Saturday evenings): Bøgedalsvej 16, 8660 Ry – FDF Friluftscenter Sletten (Bøgebjerg)

Store Scene (public free concerts Friday-Sunday afternoons):
Himmelbjerget, 8660 Ry – (in front of Hotel Himmelbjerget)
