Festival Volunteering in Croatia
Typically the rewards of volunteering at a festival are a free ticket and a better camping pitch.
The largest soundsystem culture festival in Europe, Outlook is held each year in September in an abandoned Roman fort in Stinjan Those trying to get a foothold into the events industry will be most attracted to joining the Management Support Team (MST) of the Outlook Festival, but other volunteer roles include stewarding, artist liaison, box office, campsite patrol, litter picking, site crew, and décor. Volunteers work three six to eight hour shifts and in return receive food tokens, refunded camping, and save the £130 cost of the festival ticket. Depending on the job applications need to be in by April or May.
