EWOB Information for volunteers

The EWOB festival has developed into the wonderful event it is, also thanks to the help of all our volunteers who, with joy and relentless effort, make the audience and bands feel at home.

Our volunteers are scheduled in shifts of 2 hours. A volunteer can do more than one shift, as long as these do not conflict with each other in terms of time. Volunteers can choose to perform the following tasks:

- Musical instrument storage

Visitors and musicians can leave their instruments in a secure room. The owner of the instrument receives a ticket with a number, while the same number is attached to the instrument case. When the owner can show the correct number, he/she can collect the instrument whenever he/she wishes.

- Cash register

Tickets are sold during the three days of the festival to all who wish to enter the festival hall or reside at the EWOB campsite.

- Entry check

Every visitor must have a wrist band in the correct colour to enter the venue. At the entrance the colour and wristband are checked.

- Campsite

In the grounds near to the festival-hall there is a dedicated space for campers and tents for volunteers, musicians and visitors. All day long there will be volunteers at the camp-site to safeguard the safety and to answer any questions.

- Administration

All bands report to administration. There paper work is taken care of and wrist bands and further information are given to bands. The administration also ensures correct payment of expenses to each band.

- Hall Monitor

The Hall Monitor is located in the festival hall and looks after the safety in this area.
