Volunteers

Stella Polaris is a non-profit festival, and is therefore highly dependent on our wonderful volunteers. These amazing people help the festival return every year. The tasks undertaken by volunteers are in the bar, the merchandise store, the food stands and all other sorts of practical, but essential elements.

Wherever you are, we would love to hear from you, if you are interested in participating in the worlds largest one-day chill-out festival.

If you have any questions, please contact Kalle B

 

 

WHICH AREAS CAN A STELLA POLARIS CREW-MEMBER WORK IN?

BAR

The bar is where we need the most volunteers. We will have several bars, where the guests buy beers, Somersby and sodas. You have to be able to serve the crowd with a smile, and make sure everyone gets what they want. It is simple, and you need no bar-experience. You have to be at least 18 years old to work with the bar crew.

 

FOOD STALL

The food stall serves our crowd with delicious food. You will be making sure that no one is hungry. You do not have to prepare the food, but only serve it and receive payment. Very simple.

 

SALES

The sales team works in different stalls around the festival, such as ice cream, coffee, soft drinks and other jobs alike.

 

GUARD

The guards work with the safety of the festival. This involves different backstage areas, crowd control, different ad hoc assignments and general security and safety around the site. The guards will work together with professional security crews in order to ensure that everyone knows what to do throughout the day.

 

LOGISTICS

The logistics team, makes sure that every bar and food stall has what they need during the day. In collaboration with a logistics manager you’ll make the system work and make sure that no one is in need of anything. We will of course provide you with the right equipment. You have to be 18 or older to work with the logistics crew.

 

SET-UP / TAKE DOWN

The set-up / takedown crew helps the professional stage crew to put up the stage, as well as taking it down. You will work in the morning (or the day before, in Copenhagen) and in the evening after the festival. You will be carefully instructed by our team. You do not need previous experience, but you need to be able to do a little bit of physical work.

 

FAQs

At Stella Polaris we do not work with shifts. Our crew are normally around all day. You will be assigned to a specific workspace together with the other crew-members. When it is busy, you work and when it is not that busy the crew take turns chilling. This way allows everyone to say “Hi” to their friends when they arrive.

We expect you to be happy and treat people well. You don’t need a lot of super competences except for being able to serve a beer with a smile.

We would love to bring our crew all the way around. Unfortunately, we do not have the economic resources to do so. It means, we cannot pay the transportation costs. However, if you could manage to get and pay for your own transportation, we would love to welcome you in all cities.

Except for a lovely day in the most beautiful park, great music, happy people and most possibly some great new friends! You’ll get a goodie-bag with music and merchandise, a ticket to the after party in your city and a ticket to the crew-members party in September.
