Distortion has different bars during the festival and a shift in this area can also include helping out with set-up before the festival and pack-down of the bars after the festival too. Shifts: Before, during and/or after festival.

Service
Help us keep everybody happy, safe and sound. Sell merchandise, take care of artists, help out on our camping ground or in our volunteer centre. Help us with questionnaires and partnerships. Shifts: During and/or after festival.

Production
Help us create Distortion. Set up fences, lighting, stages, art work and sound. Help us produce the best Distortion Ø ever. Or maybe help us coordinate waste and sanitation etc. Don’t be afraid of a little hard work during your shifts. Shifts: Before, during and/or after festival.

Runners
Help out where and whenever needed during the festival. It can be all sorts of assignments, so this is a chance to try out different teams. Tasks can be delivering food to the ticket booth teams, restocking the volunteer center, checking on fences or safety and helping show any lost guests around. Shifts: Before, during and/or after festival.

Tickets
This important task is to sell tickets and welcome everybody to Distortion. You will be helping out the guests with questions and information as well as making sure they are having a great time. You don’t need to speak Danish for this – although English is a must. Shifts: Before and/or during festival.

ActionHygge
The teams in this area work on producing a great time for our Distortion kids or help setting up the biggest outdoor dinner party in the street or creating our ‘Morning Party’ on Sunday morning. Shifts: Before and/or during festival.

Security/Traffic
This is where we keep everybody safe. Some teams work by the fences and entrances, other work by helping cars in the right direction. Posters need to be distributed to neighbours, and cars to be registered. Shifts: Before and/or during festival.

Distortion X
Distortion X is the newest member of the Distortion family. Do you want to make the closed parties even greater? In this team you’ll be helping with infrastructure, security and crowd safety. Close to the party, good music and first-hand experience with event production. Shifts: Before and/or during festival.
