Join the Verknipt team as a Technical Production intern!

VERKNIPT is an event organization focusing on (hard) techno, industrial techno and other rave music. We’re hosting multiple national & international events throughout the year, indoor and outdoor, booking well-known artists and introducing our visitors to new ones. In addition to Verknipt, we also host the yearly events of Wonderland Festival, in which we can put our otherworldly creativity.

Verknipt was founded in 2012, but within a short time Verknipt has become a well-known name in the Netherlands. We are known for our amazing laser shows and the good vibe among the ravers! In recent years Verknipt has made its mark throughout the World. With many events such as Verknipt ADE, Verknipt Festival, Verknipt anniversaries, the NYE editions, Wonderland Festival, Wonderland Festival Indoor, the Verknipt international editions, and since 2024 also our very own hard techno record label ‘Verknipt Records’, we have captured the hearts of many techno fans. Our vision is: “Nothing is mandatory, everything is possible”.

 

When you become a technical production intern at Verknipt you will:
Participate in the preparation process for all events in the field of light and sound! In this internship you will realize complete events together with the technical producer in order to convey the true feeling of Verknipt to the public, and to come up with innovative designs for future events. You will be busy with making plans, asking for quotations, keeping in touch with suppliers and working out various technical drawings in cooperation with and under supervision of our producer.

During the construction and dismantling of our events you will also be present and together with the team you will ensure that the technical set-up runs smoothly and where necessary you will have to solve problems. You will be part of a tight production team, but will run the technical side of this together with one other person. However, you will also have to deal with all the other disciplines with which the technical side overlaps.
