Delft Fringe Festival volunteers have an edge.

You have people who are enthusiastic about the Delft Fringe Festival. And you have people who are so enthusiastic that they voluntarily roll up their sleeves to make a great festival together. Are you one of those people? Great!

As a volunteer you are indispensable to the Delft Fringe Festival. As an employee, but also as an ambassador for all the up-and-coming talent that works up a sweat these days, exposes itself and surprises the audience with their skills.

Whether you are coming for the first time or not does not matter. As long as you are available for at least three half-days from Tuesday 28 May to Sunday 9 June.

Who are we looking for?

  • You are enthusiastic and enjoy interacting with both audiences and creators.
  • You are 18 years or older
  • You are available for at least 3 shifts, before, during and/or after the festival.
  • You can work with a smartphone and iPad (or we will give you a crash course)
  • You are multi-functional: building up, breaking down, welcoming the public, scanning tickets and selling them - you are ready for it.
  • You familiarise yourself with the programme in advance and go to see many performances, so you can properly inform the audience.

What can you expect from us?

  • You get a passe-partout to visit all performances. So you can inform and enthuse visitors from your own experience.
  • You get the one and only, official, original Delft Fringe Festival t-shirt.
  • You will receive a short training during one of the volunteer meetings before the festival starts. You will also get to know your fellow volunteers right away.
  • You will receive a volunteer contract, with which you are immediately well insured thanks to the volunteer insurance of the municipality of Delft.
  • You get an invitation to the best Fringe parties!
  • You meet fun people and perhaps discover hidden locations in Delft that you did not know yet
  • You get to know the makers and help them reach a wider audience. So you are also important for the makers!
  • You get a unique look behind the scenes of the festival
  • You can put your work for a cultural organisation nicely on your CV

Do you have any questions? Please contact our volunteer coordinator at vrijwilligers@delftfringefestival.nl.

What ?

Yes, all sorts of things! Before the festival starts, we have to build up, bring materials to the locations, things like that. And during the dismantling (usually the Sunday immediately after the last performance), everything has to go back to the production office.


During the festival, you inform the audience, sell tickets, host or help in the office with handing out stuff. Sometimes you join a tour or show visitors the way. You can also sign up as a photographer.


Where ?

At 1 of 31 locations

As an audience supervisor, you will work at one of the 31 venues. You check tickets, guide everyone to a good spot and make sure the public can vote afterwards.

At the Market

The box office and information desk can be found at the Market Square. Recognisable by our oversized Pink Rabbit. Here you sell tickets and give tips and information about the performances.

In the production office

As a production assistant, you make sure everything is ready for visitors and makers. That could be anything: bringing an iPad to one of the 31 locations, laminating that last sheet of paper, handing out stuff, putting up a sign. Or if an audience supervisor suddenly drops out, you jump in.


A festival day usually starts at 11am and ends at 11pm (5pm on Sundays). You will work in shifts, an average of 5 hours per shift. Sometime in mid-April, we put the shifts online. You then log in to the volunteer portal and allocate your own schedule and shifts.


Spread the word!

Do you have good friends, vague acquaintances, cool colleagues, interesting neighbours, faulty uncles, cute aunts or other people who would do well to volunteer at the Delft Fringe Festival? Share this page, make them an offer they can't refuse, look at them sweetly! In short: spread the word.

Experiences from other volunteers

I experienced a wonderful 10 days. I needed some time to land. But look back on it with a big smile.

I have great admiration for the team! That you guys manage to shape such a quality festival evokes this admiration. And seemingly with such ease, enjoyment and pleasure. This is inspiring to contribute as a volunteer as well. Thank you for the fun experience!
