PLAN the festival

Would you like to host a stage and/or work with us in planning kallio block party?

how is kbp planned?

Kallio Block Party is a non-profit event and is entirely volunteer-led. Since it’s inception, the festival is planned by the stage hosts and anyone else who wishes to gain experience in festival-planning. Around the beginning of every year, we invite anyone who is willing to contribute to come and join us for a kick-off meeting where we can begin deciding stage hosts – these meetings will be announced via our Instagram.

We use Discord as our main communication channel.

How can I host a stage?

In order to host a stage, you must participate with the organisation process of the event. In order to be eligible to host a stage, you and your group must have volunteers ready and willing to contribute to the festival, both during the initial planning and on the day of the festival. The more volunteers you can provide, the higher chance you have of having a stage at Kallio Block Party.
