Travelling from abroad and want to volunteer? You are more than welcome at Roskilde Festival.

Volunteering as an International at Roskilde Festival

A new law from October 2020 has made it possible for all internationals who have legal residence in Denmark to carry out voluntary work. This means that during your stay in Denmark – no matter whether your stay requires a visa, is visa exempt or based on a residence permit (regardless of your grounds for residence) – you can carry out unpaid volunteer work without applying for a work permit.

The volunteer work must have a genuine non-profit purpose, which must appear in the rules governing the organisation. Roskilde Festival is 100 % non-profit – read more about that right here.

To work unpaid means that you are not allowed to receive remuneration for your work in the form of a salary or other benefits unless the benefit is small and also given to other volunteers. When volunteering at Roskilde Festival you get a festival wristband and food provisions.

More information?

If you are residing legally in Denmark, you can volunteer at Roskilde Festival. Please check with The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI), if you have any doubts whether you are residing legally in Denmark and therefore can do volunteer work.
