Inc’Rock Music Festival
Incourt       April 30 - May 8, 2018

Volunteer project: The Inc’Rock Festival was born in the municipality of Incourt in Wallonia in 2005. The festival has grown over the years, it has gained fame and recognition, and there's more and more people coming every year. The event is not to be missed!

The festival is organized over three days and more than 10,000 visitors are expected to attend. These will be three days of music on three stages (one outside) with more than 40 concerts, entertainment, and a great atmosphere. There will be rock, urban, hip hop and French music as well as new groups. A predominant place will be given to Wallonia and Brussels artists. World-famous artists will also perform. In addition, a firework show, a VIP area and a camping site will be organized.

Before the start of the festival, the volunteers will help install the stages, tables, fences, etc. During the festival, the volunteers will be able to enjoy the festival and will help behind the bar and serving food.
