Would you like to contribute to a cleaner Roskilde Festival as a volunteer?
ReAct is the name of Roskilde Festival´s sustainability team. Our vision is to get the festival guests to clean up after themselves and to sort their waste and take home their camping gear.

Age demand: 18 years or older
Language requirements: English or Danish

Our efforts are:

  • Manned Recycling stations around the camping areas
  • Marked garbage cans at all camping areas
  • Communicating strategies through campaigns before and during the festival
  • Cool green motivated volunteers with different responsibilities
  • A ReAct parade that each day motivates and helps the festival guests to clean up and sort waste at the entire camping area.

Your job as a ReActor
The ReAct parade consists of one driver for the sorting truck, one parade leader, one compactor truck and about 20 ReActors. You will motivate and help the festival guests to collect and sort their waste, so they are ready to load the sorting truck and the compactor truck when it passes by their camp.

  • You have to be the good example
  • You have to motivate and help festival guests to sort and collect the waste so that it can be loaded onto the sorting trucks in the ReAct parade when it passes
  • You have to motivate and help the festival guests to load their waste onto the compactor truck - together with two professional employees
