Volunteers

Every year, Amsterdam Roots Festival is made possible through help from a large group of volunteers. They help us mainly at Roots Open Air in the Oosterpark: backstage, at the merchandise stands, behind the bar, with welcoming the visitors, at the kids stage (face paint, helping with the workshops) or by making photos and video's.

Unfortunately we have no other option but to cancel Roots Open Air in the Oosterpark, due to safety measures surrounding COVID-19. Being the largest part of the festival, this means unfortunately that we won’t be working with volunteers this year. We hope that you will be around next year to join our team then!

Would you like to help next year?
Send us an e-mail and we will keep you updated!
