Volunteering at We Jazz festival is unpaid and gratuitous. Our volunteers can take the amount of shifts they decide, and the shifts are 7 hours long on average. As a thank you we offer our volunteers admission to selected We Jazz concerts, a We Jazz shirt, a light meal during the volunteer shifts and an afterparty when the festival is over. All volunteers will be briefed for their tasks, and it is possible to receive a volunteering reference.

We Jazz is committed to work towards a more equal and fair world. Everyone is welcome as they are, and we will not tolerate any kind of discrimination. As our volunteers are an important part of the We Jazz crew, we require that they also commit to these values. We also ask all our volunteers to commit to agreed shifts.

As the COVID-19 situation is currently fluctuating, we do not know how things will be in December. That being said, we will do everything necessary to provide a safe event environment for our staff, volunteers, artists and visitors. We will pay attention to safe distances, minimazing crowds and lines where people stand close to each other, and good hand hygiene

The volunteer application is open until Sunday 1 November, after which we will contact all the applicants personally.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us:
