Each year Copenhagen Jazz Festival engages 150-200 volunteers.

Through the years Copenhagen Jazz Festival has established a unique volunteer culture – during the festival volunteers and festival staff work side by side and form one big festival family.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival takes pride in taking good care of its volunteers which shows by the volunteers returning year after year. 65% of the volunteers have participated before and more than half have participated two years or more.

80% of the volunteers are Danish while the rest consists of people of no less than 15 different and primarily European nationalities.
