PROJECT: This year the festival will have a new place in the historical natural park of Monte Sole, up in the hills of the town. The festival lasts 4 days. From Thursday to Sunday. In the morning there are lively discussions in Debate tents, in the afternoon sports tournaments and activities, and in the evening/night a range of live concerts, DJ sets, and sound systems. The main genre is Reggae but various others genres are in the festival (ska, hip hop, indie, Latin, dub). A temporary Camping is constructed and available for visitors who want to stay for the whole weekend. This year the festival is organized with Il Poggiolo – Rifugio Resistente a structure that gives hospitality in this historical park and will be also the bar & restaurant of the festival.
WORK: Volunteers will help the festival staff with the organization, building-up, dismantling, and running of the festival area as well as the promotion of the event in nearby communities.
The main work activities during the camp will be the preparation for the Reno Splash festival. Work will involve the mounting of the festival structures (stage area, entrance, stands, camping, and camper area, toilets, and 1 or more Moroccan tents that constitute the bar and the DJ set venue), as well as promotion of the festival via flyers/posters, distributed in the center of Bologna and in nearby communities, the painting of signs and posters and many other manual and creative activities. During the 3 days of the festival, volunteers will have the opportunity to be bartenders, sound engineer assistants, camping rangers, and many more roles. If you love to deal with people and to work with your hands this is your camp!
Photographers, graphic designers, video makers, painters, but also electricians, woodworkers, cooks, bartenders, creatives and work hard people are welcome. As you work in a festival, you should be prepared to work in the morning or at night, there will be turns and timetables but some flexibility will be required.
