Volunteer at TOA19

Over the past seven years, Tech Open Air has established itself as one of Europe’s premier professional conferences, focusing on the intersection of technology, music, science and culture. The contribution from volunteers has allowed processes to run smoothly while providing a great opportunity for more people to be involved in the production of TOA.


In order to ensure the highest level of professionalism in every aspect of the festival, we need volunteers. That’s where you come in.

Why Volunteer?

Aside from the warm fuzzy feeling you’ll get from helping us, you’ll have a unique opportunity to rub shoulders with top-tier entrepreneurs, investors, artists, and scientists at a truly amazing location whilst contributing to Europe’s coolest tech conference. And that’s not all! If you choose to volunteer, you will also get:

– A pass to TOA19

– An opportunity to meet other volunteers and network with startups, entrepreneurs and innovators

– A snack/meal and drinks at the conference during your shift

– A Certificate of Appreciation

– And of course, a TOA19 T-shirt and event swag

Who can volunteer at TOA?

If you’re 18 or older and have a good level of English, and you are up to take on at least two 6 hours shifts, you’ll be a great candidate. Other than that, all we really want from a volunteer is someone who is happy to perform their task, maintain a professional and friendly demeanour throughout the festival, and turn up on time. Reliability is key!

We love supporting our volunteers when and where we can, but please note that TOA will not issue formal invitation letters or letters of support for VISA applications this year.

Volunteer Teams

There are many ways to assist at Tech Open Air. This year’s roles have yet to be defined in detail, and some will differ from those in recent years. In the application form, you have the option to include your fields of interest, previous experience, and of course your availabilities. All of your preferences will be taken into consideration, and we’ll do our very best to accommodate your wishes.

Since we have a lot of responsibilities that need to be fulfilled, our first priority is adequately staffing the areas that need help.

Become a Volunteer Leader

This year, we’re looking for some solid leaders to step up to the plate and help lead other volunteers. If you are interested in playing a larger role at TOA19, you will have the option to indicate that on your application.

Next Steps

If this all sounds good to you, go ahead and fill out this quick application form, where you can also let us know your volunteer preferences. After you’ve submitted it, please give us a few days to get in touch. You will definitely hear from us.

Still have questions?


Check out the FAQ, and if you still have any urgent questions, please feel free to reach out to our volunteer coordinator Alisha at alisha@toa.berlin.


Please keep in mind: Updates and more information will be provided after your application and in the weeks leading up to the festival, so any non-urgent questions will probably be answered automatically as the event moves closer.


We very much look forward to your participation in TOA19!
