Volunteer at Tuhdimmat Tahdit!

Tuhdimmat Tahdit Metal Festival is organized again next year from 5th to 6th of July 2024. Application for volunteers will be opened closer to the event.

The metal festival Tuhdimmat Tahdit is organized in Ratinanniemi, Tampere from 16th to 17th of June 2023. As a volunteer you get to have a good look of the festival production and be an integral part of the festival crew.

Volunteers take part in the festival’s production in diverse tasks: wristband exchange, cleaning, decoration, ticket sales and cloakroom. All tasks are in the festival area or in its immediate proximity. Depending on the task volunteering takes place either during the festival weekend or before and/or after the festival. The tasks might vary during shifts if needed.

Working as a volunteer is based solely on volunteering and therefor there is no payment. As a volunteer at Tuhdimmat Tahdit you will have a great opportunity to gather valuable experience from different tasks that are important in making the festival happen and of course meet new awesome people! The length of one volunteering shift is 8 hours and every volunteer commits to doing two shifts, so approximately 16 hours all in all.

We offer to our volunteers the following:
• Two two-day festival tickets to Tuhdimmat Tahdit Metal Festival
• A staff party with the whole festival crew later this year
• One meal per shift, a break room and insurance for the duration of the shifts
• Tuhdimmat Tahdit festival t-shirt

Wristband exchange/cleaning

Two-day tickets and all PLUS-tickets are exchanged to wristbands during the festival. We will also look for volunteers for wristband exchange organized on Wednesday and Thursday. Cleaning is all about making sure that the festival area is comfortable by keeping it tidy. This area includes the festival site and the gates. Volunteers will be provided with all equipment needed.

Ticket sales/cloakroom

Volunteers working at ticket sales sell both PLUS and normal one-day tickets and two-day tickets if not sold out in advance. Near the festival entrance will be a cloakroom where volunteers serve festival customers who want to preserve their items in the cloakroom.


The decoration team takes care of making the festival area enjoyable and atmospheric. In addition to decorating, the volunteers in this team will also help setting up lighting in the festival area and put up signs to guide the festival customers. Decoration tasks are on Thursday and on Friday before the gates open.

Please keep in mind that the volunteer application is binding and the age limit to the volunteer tasks and the whole festival is 18 years. Any kind of deceit or being intoxicated during the shifts is forbidden and as a volunteer you commit to respect and follow the values and rules of Tuhdimmat Tahdit. Also, unfortunately we are not able to provide accommodation to our volunteers.
