The Rez Team



The volunteer crew is broken into the various categories that deal with different aspects of the festival during pre-production and production stages.

In addition to being a valuable member of the Rezonance family, volunteers will also receive full entry to the festival for the duration of the festival. The work will happen either at the studio in Tamboerskloof or on the Contermanskloof venue itself. Please note that lunch and transport is not provided and there is no accommodation available on the farm. You would ideally be based in the Cape Town area so that you can commute in and out with ease.


At the moment we are looking primarily for pre-production volunteers leading up the festival. Each category has a team leader that has experience and understands the flow and dynamics of the festival.

Pre-production volunteers are required to work a minimum of 2 days of 8 hours each but obviously they can work for longer if they want.
