What is it about?Balaton Sound’s Safety First Campaign is a volunteer program that kicked off in 2018. Due to its success, it will continue as a permanent service at the festival. The program’s goal is to minimize health, safety, and technical issues at the festival through preliminary communication campaigns, video tutorials, on-site presence, and advice from recognised professionals.
How does it work?In the program, we will be working with a team of 100 international and Hungarian volunteers, who will all take part in a 3-day training session right before the festival.
There are two types of volunteers: those who will work in pairs at three Safety First points at the festival site, and others that will patrol and monitor areas connected to each of the three points. The volunteers’ main task will be to act as a “third eye” to health, technical and security service personnel on-site, and to help complement their work in making the festival as safe as possible.
Volunteers will work in 6-hour shifts, providing a permanent presence throughout the festival at all times.

We are proud to say Balaton Sound’s Safety First program won The Health and Safety Innovation Award at the European Festival Awards (EFA) 2020. For that, we cannot thank our volunteers enough, as it is something we wouldn’t have been able to achive without them!
