Internationale Begegnung in Gemeinschaftsdiensten
Aged between 18-26
In the summer months, Germany is host to a variety of music festivals and events. One of those festivals aeuro( aeurooeUmsonst and amp; Draussenaeuro (free of charge and amp; outdoors) aeuro( will take place outside the town of Karlstadt and run for three days, from 20.-22. of July (http://www.umsonstunddraussen.de/hauptseite.html).
This festival has quite a long tradition already and it has been organized by the townaeuros young people for more than 25 years now. International workcamp volunteers have supported the Karlstadt festival for many years now and helped with the exciting, but also demanding tasks of setting up the festival. Some of them return every year to take part in this unique festival experience. Thataeuros why this yearsaeuro volunteer group will consist of 6 international volunteers and 6 Spanish volunteers (who have already been in Karlstadt in the last years).
The international group will work together with many other volunteers from Karlstadt. The main tasks will be setting up of the stage and campground on the site of the festival, as well as the disassembly at the end. While the festival is running, the volunteers will assist in different areas: bar, stage, organisation, catering etc. Volunteers should be very flexible, because often there are no fixed working hours. The organisation of the festival is in many parts done aeurooejust in timeaeuro and depends for example on deliveries, which are arranged on short notice or even on the same day. This can result in longer breaks or the need to work quite late. Speaking or understanding basic German will be a plus
Accommodation and food:
n the local youth centre for the first days. For the main part of the Camp the group will be lodging in tents on the site of the festival, where all helpers will also stay. Food will be served in the festival canteen throughout the day. Sanitary facilities are provided, but be aware of festival standards. Expect very basic amenities
Location and leisure activities:
Karlstadt is situated in the Bavarian region called Franconia. The town is home to around 7000 inhabitants and has a historical touch. If you are interested in architecture, you will find lots of traditional German buildings in the town centre. Also, with its vast vineyards and rolling hills, the region provides an opportunity for some calm and relaxing outdoor activities as an alternative to the hectic life of the festival.
