No volunteers. No Roskilde Festival.
The strong voluntary commitment is the DNA of Roskilde Festival. Every year, around 30.000 volunteers help sustain the goal of making a difference in the world. Besides all the hard-working volunteers, around 1.200 volunteers create the festival throughout the year, we call them all-year-volunteers.
We are proud of our volunteers, because they have been taking part in creating a unique festival city - a city with strong values and a place where we transform dreams into reality.
By volunteering at Roskilde Festival you are helping raise money for a wide range of good causes that make a difference for people all over the world.
Roskilde Festival has a partnership with around 200 associations who all help create the festival. Besides Foreningen Roskilde Festival, the other 200 associations recruit volunteers to contribute at the festival. By volunteering for one of Roskilde Festival's partner-associations, your effort will help the associations, and all profits will go to good causes selected by the association.
If you are volunteering directly at Foreningen Roskilde Festival, all profits are donated for cultural and charitable purposes selected and represented by Foreningen Roskilde Festival. You will be sure, that your effort is transformed into good causes streamlined with the values of Roskilde Festival.
There are many different positions. Here are some examples:
But it all depends on you and your interests. Take a look at our openings here.
Most volunteer positions require 32 hours effort, spread out on shifts throughout the whole festival, or 24 hours effort, spread out on the last four days of the festival.
As a festival volunteer, you must be the minimum of 15 years old at the start of the festival. For positions relating to sale of liquor and beer, as well as work with safety, such as service-volunteers at camp sites or crowd safety, you must be at least 18 years old. Some positions require you to be the minimum of 21 years old.
To become a volunteer, you must be ready to become part of a great and creative community!
