Dear Potential Volunteers!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Borneo Jazz Festival 2019!

Why volunteer for Borneo Jazz?

Volunteering is one of the best ways to support and contribute to the festival. Our volunteers share a passion for the festival and the art of jazz, a foundation that continually inspires the growth of our volunteer community which we often refer to as our ‘Festival Family’. You will have the opportunity to make new friends, help put on a world class festival, and enjoy the music!

What will I do?​

Our volunteers will carry out a variety of tasks that requires a wide spectrum of physical, technical and interpersonal skills. We make every effort to find the best fit for each volunteer and we ensure that our volunteer experience is enjoyable!


  • Respect and Kindness:
    Our volunteers are our ambassadors – They introduce performers, patrons and friends to our festival by providing an enriching experience. We want to create the best experience possible for everyone involved, which means treating fellow volunteers, performers, media, patrons and others with respect and kindness.
  • Time Commitment:
    Most volunteers need to be available for the entire Festival weekend (that’s when most tasks happen). In some cases, people with specific skills may be recruited.
  • Our Commitment
    We have the utmost respect for the skills, time and passion volunteers bring to the festival. All festival volunteers receive the following:
    • A volunteer pass (provides festival access)
    • Meal allowance
    • 2 volunteer t-shirts
    • A certificate of participation
  • Who will contact me?
    We will contact you to confirm your crew assignment. After you accept your volunteer assignment, you will be contacted by your leader to discuss specific tasks and to provide schedule and meeting information.

    At the meetings, volunteers will receive updated information, plan for the weekend and their volunteer schedule. Attendance at the volunteer meeting is important. The organizer will contact successful volunteers on the briefing accordingly. Please make sure you provide your contact details correctly.
  • What if I don’t get accepted?
    We will contact you accordingly – Please do not be discouraged.
  • A Final Word
    The Borneo Jazz is successful because volunteers work together as a team to provide excellent services to patrons, performers, media and other volunteers. The success of the festival is therefore dependent upon volunteers contributing fully to their crew and completing all scheduled shifts. Our volunteers are passionate about the festival and jazz.

If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer experience, and would like to be a part of the BJ volunteer community, we would love to hear from you.
