Volunteer at Couvre Feu music festival in France

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP



Time Commitment

Full time (30+ hrs/wk)


Short-Term (few weeks/months)


Pays de la Loire


Couvre Feu is a music festival with rock, reggae, ska, metal, and pop rock concerts, which takes place every year in Corsept in the Loire-Atlantique department in western France. The 16th edition of the festival will take place on August 23, 24, 25 and 26. The organization of such an event requires a lot of time and people available, and from the start, international volunteers have been involved in the organization of the festival to help run the event and accommodate nearly 30,000 visitors. Supervised by the directors of the organizing team, you will participate in setting up and taking down the festival. This includes the installation of circus tents (where concerts take place), closing the site with fences, arranging parking lots, dressing rooms, refreshment stands and catering, dismantling and equipment storage. During the festival, you will be responsible for welcoming the public and site maintenance. The week following the weekend’s festival will be dedicated to dismantling, equipment storage, cleaning and restoration of the site.

Note: Tasks are a little repetitive but essential. Festival organizers are counting on your motivation to help before, during and after the festival. The work schedule will vary a lot according to the needs. Little time for leisure activities, but the atmosphere is very festive. Volunteers must be especially dynamic and enthusiastic, and of course must be music fans!

Project dates: August 17 - August 31, 2018
