Earthsong Site Crew
Earthsong is unique in the way in which the event is set up. We don't hire professionals but erect all of the venues ourselves. Over a number of years all of the profits from the camps have gone towards buying a number of large venues. This means we now don't have to rely on other larger companies in order to set our camp up.
ABOUT SITE CREW
In order to attend Site Crew you must be:
> Over 18 years of age OR 16 years of age and have an adult (over 25) who will act as a guardian for you.
> In reasonable good shape. While the work doesn't involve a large amount of heavy lifting there is a lot of physical activity involved.
** There are no children allowed on site during construction **
While working on Site Crew you will be provided with 3 meals a day. There will always be vegetarian, vegan, wheat, dairy and gluten free options on request.
You will need to have your own camping gear (tent, bedding) food utensils, work clothes etc. Earthsong does not provide food for Site Crew during camp so you will need to organise this before the camp starts. There will be a shop on site once the camp begins and there is a small town nearby to pick up any extra supplies.

Friday (2nd July) - Saturday (10th July)
We run a 'Seed Camp' before the first camp; Dance, Drum and Movement camp starts in Tipperary. This is a week long event in which venues are erected, showers are built, signs are painted, forest walks are cleared and the site is made completely ready for the camps that follow.
We ask that people arrive on Friday so they can get their tent set up and are ready to start work on Saturday morning.
1 Free Ticket
Working for the duration of Seed Camp entitles you to 1 free ticket to either Dance Camp OR Harvest Camp
HALF SEED CAMP
