The second week will invite you to immerse in the life of the festival. With a group of local volunteers from the organising association and international volunteers, you will carry out diverse tasks that will help the festival to run smoothly: you will welcome and inform visitors, help them with the seating and logistical tasks, etc... Finally, you will help to disassemble the decorations and put them back to storage while enjoying your last moments in the company of your friend volunteers with whom you will have shared unforgettable and intense moments!
