Volunteer teams: Contests & Line Up

 

The contests and the artistic programme - in other words, the artistic aspect of the festival - form the basis of the WMC. The volunteer teams will be led by artistic managers Björn Bus and Henk Smit. They are responsible for the artistic implementation of both the contests and the line-up during the entire WMC.

Would you like to become a volunteer?
Our teams of volunteers can always use reinforcements. Enthusiastic, driven people who want to work at WMC on a voluntary basis are therefore very welcome! Do you want to know more or register as a volunteer? Send an email to info[at]wmc.nl for more information.
