Blue Monkey Festival 2021 – Helper Ticket



Blue Monkey Festival Helper Tickets are for people who chose to commit a part of their time and energy to work at the festival. It involves a work exchange and includes some responsibilities. Please only apply as a helper if you can commit to this. Before purchasing your helper ticket please send us a helper application including your availability and skills/preferences!

Application is now open:

IMPORTANT: Helpers agree to work about 16 hours as an energy exchange. There will be different teams with different tasks and responsibilities. We will try to respect your preferences regarding the team/tasks but cannot guarantee that everybody gets their preferred team and dream shifts so please only apply if you are generally open also to do something else if necessary. Helper tickets are limited and the early bird catches the worm (=preferred team) so the sooner we receive your application the higher the chances you get a spot in your favorite team.

Tasks: This is a pre festival workshop of arts, crafts & creativity! In the last week of July we are going to build some decoration for the festival with a small group of experienced and skillful artists and builders. There is a project vision guided by an artist but you are free to bring in own ideas and materials. In exchange for your work and energy you can camp at the festival grounds for free and we will all share the costs of the food. We are still looking for someone cooking for us in that time, so if you feel called to hang out with the arts team and cook for our small team for the three days in our open air kitchen at the festival grounds get in touch! There will be plenty of time to relax, skinny dip in the lake and connect with the group as well, so it’s like a little free prefestival…
