Volunteers

Become a part of the  El SOL WSF 2017 team!

Organizing Warsaw Salsa Festival requires a lot of work from a great number of dedicated people. Every year we need over 50 volunteers to help us with the event. You, too, can become part of our success!

What does a volunteer do?

We have many different kinds of jobs – and it is not possible to list them all. But typical volunteer positions include:

  • festival desk assistants
  • door controls, who control wristbands of people leaving and entering the venue
  • venue stewards and runners, who make sure the festival runs smoothly; their task are varied and include taking items where they are needed, answering participants’ questions, alerting the organizers of any issues, directing people on the site
  • parites control and stewards, who control party entrances, distribute flyers, makes sure that all the people left the party and no one sleeps on the dancefloor
  • drivers, who drive artists (and things) around

All volunteers have to know the venue, the prices and the detailed program of the festival, so that you can professionally answer the visitors’ questions, direct them and handle any unforeseen challenges. That’s why you will be required to attend volunteer briefing and training sessions before the Festival. They will probably take place late in the evening (exact time and date to be determined later).

Who can apply?

You can apply to become a El SOL WSF 2017 volunteer if:

  • drivers: you have your own car and a driving licence
  • you speak good English and Polish

As you can see, we’re mostly looking for locals. However, we might have a limited number of positions for people from abroad, if you manage to convince us you’re indispensable in our team :-)

* if you have already bought a pass and would really really like to be a volunteer, you might still apply and get a free pass to one of the other events organized by Chagowska Production sp. z o.o. spółka komandytowa. Contact us for details!

What’s in it for me?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide meals or accommodation for our volunteers.
