If you have any questions or thoughts regarding the situation, please contact us by email at staff@provinssi.fi.

VOLUNTEERING IN PROVINSSI

The volunteering for Provinssi will take place already for the 42nd time in the beautiful area of Törnävänsaari, where volunteers are taking part in the festival’s production in diverse tasks. A sense of humor, the ability to dive into all kinds of situations, and a dash of both physical and mental strength are all helpful traits when volunteering.

Read about volunteering tasks from here

Volunteering takes place during the festival weekend and tasks are offered approximately 16-18 hours during the three festival days. Before and after festival volunteers can use their artistic creativity for example in the area of art and visualization tasks.

Special skills aren’t required, but feel free to tell us in the application form if you happen to have any – they might come in handy! The most important thing is that you have a good attitude and you’re ready to embrace the best experience of your summer.

GOOD TO KNOW

VOLUNTEERING AS A MINOR

You can volunteer before you’re 18 years old as long as you’ve turned 15 before the beginning of the festival. We’d love to offer volunteer tasks to everyone who’s interested, but unfortunately, we won’t be able to do so. Especially some minors will sadly be left without a volunteer spot due to the majority of them requiring being an adult by law, such as tasks with alcohol handling or those related to security. Remember to ask for your parents’ permission if you apply to volunteer as a minor!

BENEFITS OF VOLUNTEERING IN PROVINSSI

As a volunteer for the festival, you won’t be paid a salary or any compensation in the traditional sense. As a volunteer for Provinssi, you will get the full, amazing festival experience, new friends, valuable experience, and good vibes! By request, you can get a volunteering certificate after the festival. Every volunteer gets a crew wristband, which is valid for the whole festival period – all three days.

Food and drinks

As a volunteer, you will be provided with food during the days of your volunteering tasks. The Crew Catering will be open every festival day from morning until late evening. There will be water, juice, coffee, and tea available throughout the whole festival for free. You also have the possibility to buy snacks from the Crew catering. 

Crew shirt

You’ll receive a unique Provinssi Crew shirt that should be worn while volunteering. You also get to keep the shirt after the festival! Drinking alcohol or being seen intoxicated while wearing the Crew shirt is forbidden.

Accommodation

Want to volunteer but you live over 15 km away? Provinssi will provide accommodation mainly for the time between the 29th of June and the 3rd of July if so desired. The accommodation options are either a spot for a tent at the campsite, or staying at the school accommodation. Both of these options can be booked through the volunteer application form. Sleeping next to your friend is possible as long as you remember to tell us their name in the application form.

Crew lounge and afterparty

There is a crew-exclusive lounge area for the volunteers at Provinssi, where volunteers can hang out, and rest between their tasks. The traditional Provinssi Karonkka a.k.a Provinssi Crew Afterparty will be arranged after the festival. This year the accommodations will be extended until the time of the afterparty for volunteers from other cities! 

APPLYING AND BECOMING A VOLUNTEER

You can apply to be a volunteer by filling out the volunteer application form.

Applicants will receive a letter of approval or rejection during the spring.

Specific details about what team the volunteers are going to be placed in will be revealed during the spring. It depends on the number of applicants, and it’s possible we won’t be able to provide said information before the beginning of the summer. We hope applicants understand this and keep a patient mind. All accepted volunteers will also receive an email before the festival with all the important information about volunteering in the Provinssi crew in general.

Each team supervisor will contact the accepted volunteers and fill them in about the task description and schedules before the festival. Please feel free to ask your team supervisor more specific questions about your schedules at this point in the process!

All official information will be distributed via email from staff@provinssi.fi.

COMMITMENT

Volunteers are the driving force of Provinssi, and the festival simply couldn’t happen without the crew. It’s the volunteers that truly make Provinssi a celebration of the people. That’s why we hope that all people applying to be part of our crew are also ready to commit to doing the tasks they are given at Provinssi. If for some reason you can’t participate in volunteering as planned, please let us know as soon as possible by emailing us at staff@provinssi.fi.

In case of sudden cancellation during the festival (because of sickness or other valid reasons) you should report to your supervisor immediately about your absence.

All kinds of deceit and drunken appearance during the tasks and/or when wearing the Crew shirt is forbidden.
