Band production - Artist village Helvíti, Hades, Gehenna & Pandæmonium

Before, during & after - Fighter, Warrior & Hellraiser

Here we need extra hands for Construction, Catering and Care. These teams ensure that the artists have optimal conditions while visiting COPENHELL - and the tasks are endless and unpredictable.

Construction makes the city ready for use. Among other things, they collect furniture, lugging refrigerators, hanging chandeliers and much, much more. After the festival, it all has to be packed down again.

Catering helps our skilled restaurateur with all incidental work in the kitchen (including dishes) or works as a service person in the artist restaurant. This team is open, and you can signup as Fighter.

Care ensures that the band spaces are ready on time and adapted to the needs that the artist has requested - even if it requires refurnishing. Care also takes care of riders and all ongoing emergencies.

No matter which team you are on in Artistbyen, we work hard, and everyone helps if we need to wash floors, fix toilets, pick up, take away or 1000 other things. We have a common goal: The artists must be MAX ready to go on stage and deliver the coolest concert of the year!

The artist city is open 24/7, so fresh night people are much appreciated, and for the shift schedule to go up, the working hours may well be more than 8 hours. Experience managing artists is an advantage, but not a must.

Send a short motivated application to artistcare@copenhell.dk - and you will hear from us soon.
