Report from an English volunteer at Sweden Rock Festival

From 7th to 10th June the Sweden Rock Festival took place outside the city of Sölvesborg in the south of Sweden. Johanniterhjälpen was joined by three English and two German volunteers who together provided first aid to the spectators of the annual open-air music event.

Jack Nixon from St John Ambulance reports about his experience at the Volunteer Swap in Sweden:

“Volunteering with Johanniter at the Sweden Rock Festival was an incredible experience that I’ll always treasure. Before the event, I had the chance to explore the vibrant city of Malmo, soaking in its charm and immersing myself in the local culture. The festival itself was a whirlwind of music and excitement, with the highlight being the moment I treated a patient while Europe’s “The Final Countdown” played in the background. Despite the occasional language barrier, everyone was incredibly kind and willing to lend a hand. Relaxing at the beach with fellow volunteers from Germany before our shifts added to the camaraderie and made the experience even more enjoyable. I’m already looking forward to returning next year, as the Sweden Rock Festival has become a must-attend event for me.”
