volunteers wanted brainwash festival 2023

We can’t organise Brainwash festival without volunteers. Volunteering at Brainwash is a nice opportunity to be involved with the organisation Brainwash Festival.

what to expect?

As a volunteer you will be working as a host, ticket scanner or audience support at one of our locations. In exchange for your help you will get, besides a nice experience, access to part of the festival program and free excess to the afterparty in Club Up. Lunch or/and dinner will be provided. 

Brainwash festival is the biggest annual think festival of the Netherland and Belgium. Philosophers, scientists and theatrical performers provide 60 different programmes in which they search for answers on the questions of current times. The festival will take place on the 29th of October 2023 at different venues around Leidseplein in Amsterdam (Melkweg, Paradiso, De Balie, Bellevue and Club Up). There is also supporting programme on the 27th and 28th of October.
