About the local hosting organizationThe camp host is the local cultural association Mukula which organises various cultural events for children and young people. They also organise annually a small rock festival in Jalasjarvi, The festival attracts about 3000-4000 guests.
About the volunteer workThe work will be to assist in organizing a small local rock festival. The festival is being held for the 17th time on 11.-13.8. The volunteers will assist in practical tasks (simple but sometimes heavy work) in arranging the event. The first week will mostly consist of building the fences and setting up and on the second week tidying up the area afterwards. So if you are interested in rock music and the Finnish countryside, and are ready to work hard in all weather conditions this is the camp for you.
Local accommodationThe accommodation is at a local youth centre Wilhola within walking distance from the festival area. There is a shared sleeping area. Meals will be cooked together by the volunteers.
