Generator’s Summer of Festivals is back for a second year. They are offering the chance to win a job as their Summer of Festivals Reporter and spend the summer travelling around Europe covering music festivals and documenting them on Generator’s blog and social channels.
Hard working, friendly, professional and committed people can receive free tours to European festivals and events by joining the Pillow Adventure Travel Company team as ground crew, tour cooks, leaders and managers.
Applications for volunteering with Croatia’s Outlook Festival are now open. In return for helping out volunteers will receive a free festival ticket (normally £140), food tokens and four nights’ refunded camping.
Ancient or modern, film, books, arts, religious, comedy, beer or music, today is festival day. Somewhere in the world a town or city is celebrating one of the many thousands of events that make up the social fabric of the varied communities that inhabit this planet.
Edinburgh has gained worldwide renown for the large number of events that congregate under the banner of the Edinburgh Festival. While putting on your own show is a great way to be at the heart of the festival, another option is to find a temporary position or, much easier, volunteer to work at the festival.
Travelling is undoubtedly fun – providing a heady mix of new cultures and new experiences. However, the pressures of constantly moving from place to place can take its toll – both mentally and financially.
