From Friday the 12th of June
the warm-up will start, from Monday the 15th of June we will go live for
five consecutive days. Together with the creators, an up-to-date
programme has been put together that will largely take place virtually.
Wherever you are: you will experience the island, as always, through the
eyes of the creators, and the island feeling will never be far away! Read more here.
In June, the Oerol crew expands with around 1000 volunteers who help to make Oerol a success. Without you there is no Oerol! Do you want to contribute to Oerol and experience the festival in a unique way?
This page contains all of the information about what it means to be a volunteer.
Please note: As a volunteer you will work about, and maximum, 7 hours per day. Because the festival lasts from the early morning until late at night your working hours can vary on a daily base/per day. There is plenty of time to enjoy the festival and the island next to your shift.
In exchange for your efforts you’ll receive from Oerol:
During Oerol you work in a tight and diverse team of volunteers. Since there are about 1000 people volunteering for Oerol, we think it is important that everyone feels seen and heard. The whole team is working hard to achieve this. We think it is an honour you want to become part of the festival. You will meet a lot of new and fun people, you will get to peek behind the scenes of a very special festival and besides you will have the time to plunge into all the beauty the island has to offer.
We will book your camping spot on Terschelling on the days you will be working(from the day you arrive until the day you leave) at one of the campsites listed below. We book a place without electricity. Do you want power anyway? Then you can arrange this with the campsite manager in consultation and against payment, if this is a possibility at the campsite where you sleep.
Please note: these camping spots are meant for small tents (2 to 3 people). Unfortunately, there is no room for large tents.
In the registration form you can indicate which campsite you prefer.
To arrive at Terschelling you take the ferry from Harlingen Haven. Write down which arrival- and departure date you submitted, so you can book the right ferry. Do this as soon as possible.
You can book the ferry via www.rederij-doeksen.nl. The costs of the passage are for your own expenses. You can change the date and time of your ferry ticket if necessary, as long as you do this before the booked ferry has departed.
Please note: around Oerol a lot of the ferries are sold out. Be careful when cancelling or rebooking your ticket. Due to this busy time and the division of teams we use fixed arrival- and departure dates. These days are not counted as working days.
