To make great festival experiences we depend on volunteers for different tasks. If you want to be a volunteer, Maijazz is a wonderful opportunity to experience the cultural life and festival from the inside, and do something important and meaningful. In MaiJazz you will be able to participate in many exciting tasks, learning something new create new acquaintances and friendship, and get many amazing musical experiences.
Maijazz is a well-known and recognized festival and host of many national and international artists, and we have a constant need for volunteers. Every year, there are around 150 volunteer volunteers that help Maijazz become one of the year’s finest jazz experiences for the region.
As a volunteer at Maijazz, you should be assured that we follow all restrictions for infection control that apply at all times. We will continuously implement necessary measures so that we maintain a good and safe environment and experience for all volunteers, artists and audience at all times.
What can I contribute / do in MaiJazz?
We are fortunate enough to find that many people join as volunteers year after year, while we still need more volunteers. As a volunteer you can contribute to several different areas such as ticket and security, stage/crew, catering, transportation, artist hosting, concert manager, PR, office/accreditation, and photographer.
Due to Covid-19, there will be changes in both tasks and benefits for our great Jazzistents.
