Guided Tuska KVLT tasks are available a week before the festival, during the festival, and two days after the festival. KVLT tasks are carried out under the guidance of industry professionals.

During your free time at the festival, we hope that you inform the Tuska KVLT Coordinators if you encounter any kind of questionable behavior on the festival site. This way, we can collectively ensure the safety of the event while enjoying the festivities.

Creating Tuska – that’s what the infrastructure team’s task is all about. During setup, your tasks include fencing the area, attaching signs, and setting up furniture.

Your task is to make sure that recycling bins find their rightful place on the festival grounds, making festivalgoers’ proper recycling as seamless as a dance – or more like moshing.
