- Crew Office Samponhuis (Concourslaan 10) is opened from 09:00am till 02:00am
- Crew Office Voorpark (Verzetstrijderslaan 2) is opened from 11:00am till 18:00pm
Make sure you’re on time, because it could be busy; on your way here and at the Crew Office itself.
What will you receive?
You will receive an accreditation email including an E-ticket. If you haven't received it on the 4th of May, please contact us.
In your accreditation email you can see what you're entitled to. Everyone will receive a wrist band and a crew T-shirt. Besides that, depending on your working hours, you will receive lunch, dinner and/or an evening snack.
You will need your E-ticket to check in at the Crew Office. You can bring it hardcopy or on your phone. This way, we can easily register your attendance and starting time. Please keep in mind to also check out at the Crew Office Samponhuis after your shift.
What do I get paid for working at Bevrijdingsfestival Groningen?
There are different ways in which you can get paid.
Members of associations will not get paid themselves. The association will receive a sum for the time that members are scheduled.
If you are here for yourself, you will receive a volunteer reimbursement. This is an amount of 4,50 Euros per hour.
You don't need to count volunteer reimbursements as income, you can keep the full amount without paying any taxes.
If you work multiple days, it is possible that you aren't applicable for a volunteer reimbursement. In that case, you will become a parttime employee of Bevrijdingsfestival Groningen.
For freelancers it is also possible to bill us for your work. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accompanied with your schedule you have received instructions, make sure to read them properly. In addition you’ll be instructed by your coordinator/supervisor. For bar volunteers this instruction will be held at the bar you’ll be working at. Other volunteers will gather at the Crew Office to be picked up by their coordinator.
Tips & tricks
You can bring your jackets and bags with you to your workplace. Don’t forget to bring warm clothing (or water-resistant, in case of rain). After sunset it’s still pretty cold on May 5th!
Schedule / working hours
We aks our volunteers to be quite flexible when it comes to working hours. It could be you’ll be asked to stay a little longer (with a maximum of an hour) or help out at a different location if need be. All extra working hours will be registered by your coordinator and will be financially compensated.
Do I have to check out after my shift?
Yes, you can do so at the Crew Office Samponhuis. We would also like to know what your experience was with working at the festival, so that we can use your feedback to keep improving. At the Crew Office you can also get a last drink (soda, beer or wine).
Where can I park?
Parking your car
You can park your car at the parking of the Gasunie building. The route description you can find further along in de crew guide. There is also a walking route to the Crew Office Samponhuis, where you can check in. Please keep in mind that this can mean that you need more time to get there. If you come by car, you can check in at the Samponhuis, even though your schedule might say Voorpark.
Parking your bike
As usual, you can park your bike backstage at Crew Office Samponhuis.
At Crew Office Voorpark, this isn't possible backstage. You can use the public bike racks in the vicinity.
