Not convinced - become a Stagehand

Are you interested in sound equipment, and do you like working with big projects? Then maybe you are the person we are looking for. The Annual Party is looking for stagehands to assist with changeovers between the concerts at our two main stages. As stagehand, it is important that you are available via phone during the entire evening, be ready for swift changes (e.g. in case of changes in the program), and prepared for physical labour. You are required to be sober as a stagehand.

As a stagehand, you will be treated with a meal during the evening, the best concert spots at Årsfesten as well as access to the legendary ‘Sjatfest’ two weeks after Årsfesten, which is a party arranged exclusively for all the nice people who help create Årsfesten.
