TOP Week 2024 will take place from August 19 to 23, and during TOP Week, as a TOP Crew member, you will work several shifts and get free admission to all events outside of your shifts. Before the start of TOP Week, TOP Crew members will be divided into small groups. This way, you will work a lot with the same people during the week and get to know each other well. If you want to sign up with someone and would like to be placed in a group together, you can indicate this when you sign up! 

All crew members get the shift of registration on Monday and help out during the cantus on Wednesday. In addition to these shifts, there are several other shifts during the week. Before the beginning of the week you will receive a script that will tell you which shifts you are assigned to, with whom and what your duties will be during that shift.
