As a volunteer, you take part in creating our festival. 

Therefore, we would like you to:

  • Think about yourself as a co-creator of your own as well as everybody else’s festival experience. Be the volunteer you want others to be!
  • Treat everybody with tolerance and respect – and make sure that others do the same.
  • Contribute to a safe and peaceful festival for everyone by always offering a solution instead of conflict.

When carrying out your assignments as a volunteer, we expect that you:

  • Show up on time.
  • Take responsibility. Thoroughly acquaint yourself with your assignment before your first shift. If in doubt, speak with your supervisor.
  • Will not leave your shift before you’re relieved. If it is busy, offer to stay a bit longer.
  • Immediately let your supervisor know, if you will be late or will not be able to show up for your shift.
  • Refer to the person in charge of the area if you’re asked a question that you don’t immediately know the answer to.
  • Speak to festivalgoers and co-volunteers in a nice and proper manner.
  • Will help your co-volunteers by showing your wristband when passing through a gate, opening your bag etc.
  • Have not consumed or are under the influence of alcohol or drugs while performing your role.
  • Help collect and separate trash and be conscious about reducing waste.
  • Clean up after yourself in the camp before you go home.

We're creating Roskilde Festival together. 

We have a responsibility towards each other to ensure that everyone has the best experience at Roskilde Festival. 

That's why we have five guidelines for creating the true Roskilde vibe. 

 

1. Join the Community

Enjoy the freedom and meet others with respect and curiosity. Everyone has their own way of being – you too! When you make others feel welcome, you create the best festival experience for everyone.   

 

2. Look After Each Other

Keep your eyes and heart open, as we look after each other around the clock. Step in when others need a helping hand or contact the festival hosts wearing vests.   

 

3. Make Space

The festival can be intense and euphoric, so be mindful of others in large crowds. Be considerate of those standing next to you. Find a calmer spot if you need more space.

 

4. Leave it Clean 

We are united in the fight against disposable and single-use items. Bring as few camping items as possible and bring it all home. Leave the festival as clean as when you arrived by sorting your camp’s thrash. 

 

5. Take a Break  

Remember to take a break from partying and explore all the unexpected experiences, games and new friends in the utopian festival city. It’s in both intense and chill moments that great memories are made.

Among our committed volunteers there are some very special ones who lead the way and inspire us with their heroic deeds. We want to pay tribute to them. That's why we appoint our RFheroes – an honor for the volunteers and teams who make a significant difference to our community. 

At next year's festival, the heroes' names will be engraved in plates and placed in front of the Orange Stage. Here they will lie among other heroes, so that we can always remember and pay tribute to them. 

How to nominate 

Do you know a genuine festival hero? Nominate the person or the team in one of the following five categories:

  • Most Helpful Person or Team of the Year
  • Best Volunteer Community of the Year
  • Volunteer Effort of the Year
  • New All-year Volunteer or New Team of the Year
  • Association of the Year

The heroes are chosen by a jury consisting of management representatives in Roskilde Festival.  

You can nominate candidates for RFheroes until Friday 12 July 2024.

Roskilde Festival’s volunteer manifesto unfolds and describes our principles for volunteering. 


YOU ARE WELCOME
As a volunteer you are part of a community where we are equals with respect for each other’s differences. When we meet, we learn more about each other and ourselves. Some people volunteer for the community and the music, some want to learn new things, and others simply cannot help themselves. No matter why you’re here, you should feel welcome and have a say in what direction the festival is moving.

 

YOU ARE THE HEART

Each festival is a unique event that we create for each other, and each time you meet another person at the festival, you contribute to their festival experience. It is through you and your personal commitment that other people experience the festival. That means that you are part of creating that extra something, which makes the experience so special and memorable to everyone living in the festival city.

 

YOU GAIN EXPERIENCES
You can test new sides of yourself, you can make new friends and you can expand your professional network. Maybe you get a stronger sense of who you are and your abilities. You get the chance to learn, play, grow and develop yourself, and you gain experiences and new competences, which you can use in the future.

 

YOU MAKE YOUR MARK

Our ambition is to contribute to a lasting change toward a more sustainable world – socially as well as environmentally and culturally. You are part of creating this lasting change. The people you meet at the festival feel your commitment and your effort. It is felt when the profits from the festival are donated to charities for children and young people all over the world, and it is felt in the local community.

 

WE ARE THERE FOR EACH OTHER

All volunteers fill out a different role in creating Roskilde Festival and all contributions are irreplaceable. We will prepare you for your role, ensuring that you know what you need to know to carry out your role. We look after you and feed you, so that you are ready to do your best. It’s important to us that you have a good experience and want to return.
