A human-driven festival requires…well, humans! 140 volunteers helped maintain awareness, guide festival goers and overall create and maintain a magical atmosphere. Become part of the Techfestival Crew when we welcome 300+ tech experts, digital frontrunners, web-legends and more from 5-7 September in Copenhagen.
As a Techfestival volunteer, you have the chance to be part of a big crew of passionate people working on the same mission. You get to meet new friends, explore technology, and learn how to build and create the ultimate festival experience. Whether you’re a complete rookie in the world of tech or already a working professional within the field, this is a great opportunity to learn, explore and be a part of something big.
You can volunteer in two ways:
– Techfestival Hero
– Techfestival Crew Member
Want more responsibility and be in charge of some of our bigger events? As a Techfestival Hero, you are prepared to assist the execution of the Summits as the official Techfestival representative. You will be in close contact with our co-creators when executing the event as well as being the go-to person if issues and/or questions should arise. You will also be in charge of presenting the co-creators and welcoming them to the stage. As such, being friendly and unafraid of speaking to an audience is a definite plus.
As a Techfestival Hero we require you to volunteer for 1-2 full days (08:00 – 18:00) from 5th – 7th September + attend the Hero briefing ahead of the festival.
Techfestival Crew Member
There are several ways you can help out as a crew member – take a look below and read more about being part of the crew at Techfestival:
Hosting events & Dinners
During the festival, we will host dinners and parties for our co-creators and participants. As a volunteer, you will help setting up and servicing guests during these events.
Sessions & Summits
We are utilising several venues in the meatpacking district and we need people to assist at the different meetups and summits. That would, for instance, entail guiding people and making sure that everything is running smoothly and according to schedule.
Production & Build-up
We need people who don’t mind lifting heavy stuff to help out with the build-up of the festival. This includes setting up stages and preparing the different installations. So, if you’re into using your hands, this is definitely the task for you.
The Street Crew – before the festival
Just before the festival, we need friendly volunteers to take to the streets and make people aware of Techfestival. This tasks involved handing out flyers and wristbands. As part of The Street Crew, you will also visit our stakeholders’ and partners’ locations to deliver their wristbands and set up posters.
Info-booth & Installations
At the main festival area, we need people who are helpful and friendly to manage our info-booth where people collect their wristbands. Our different installations will also be located at the main festival area. At our installations, we need people to assist the guests with various contents. We greatly encourage you to sign up for several info-booth shifts and we will be designating shifts to those who do.
If you’re mainly into to just helping out where help is needed and getting glimpses of all corners of the festival, look no further. We need runners at the base to stand-by if smaller tasks should come up. And trust us, they will!
