Do I qualify for volunteering at Apsara? What skills do I require? Do i need volunteering experience?
Everyone is welcome to apply via our volunteer application form.
You do not require volunteering experience of any kind, nor do you have to be a qualified carpenter to help. Just be sure to fill in AS MANY details about you, how you can contribute and why you want to volunteer. Also clearly describe the kind of tasks and jobs you see yourself performing.
Of course! as mentioned above, fill the application from with AS MANY details as possible, mentioning if someone you know also applied. This way we can avoid disappointments (e.g. your application gets approved, but your brother’s/sister’s application gets rejected, which indeed would be sad).
Well it’s actually quite simple: you present a valid ticket upon entering the festival location, participate at the shifts timetable with a fair amount of work and receive the amount of money spent on the festival ticket when the festival ends. Fair for both sides, isn’t it?
We will provide 3 meals at our crew camp and 3 drinks tokens per day.
The total amount of time spent in performing volunteer tasks is 20 hours divided in 5-hour-shifts. We will try to organize the timetable of the shits to be as flexible as possible, i.e. allowing you to choose if you want to work 2 shifts in a row, work 5 hours on every festival day or participate on a few shifts during and a few shifts before or after the festival.
It is possible to do volunteer jobs and tasks before and after the festival. Although, the amount of work to be done DURING the festival will greatly surpass that of the work needing to be done before and after.
However we will try to organize the shifts as flexible as possible, so that you can enjoy the festival and get to see your favorite acts.
