Enlightenment and campaign - we engage people and challenge decision makersFor each volunteer at Roskilde festival, we receive 1000 DKK (aprx. 150 eu) for various support projects around the world.THE PROJECTThe work camp project goal is for the work camp volunteers to join our MS community of volunteers, doing the same tasks together to create cooperation and solidarity, while maintaining the smooth operation of the volunteer base and creating a better social environment through various social events at the campsite.
The purpose of the work is to maintain the volunteer camping area, so the volunteers that stay there are able to have the best experience as possible. The tasks will involve patrolling around the camp together with other volunteers, checking peoples wristbands at the entrance of the camp and helping the supervisors facilitate and create 2 fun and social events at the camp.The working hours will consist of around 8-hour working shifts for patrolling duty. These are divided by 3 shifts a day. One in the morning, one in the evening and one in the night. Each volunteer has to do at least 4 (one of them has to be a night shift and one has to be during the music days).The shifts for working with the supervisor to make events might start in the morning, and will involve discussion, practical manual work in setting it up and facilitating it and should not take longer than 8 hours also. The 2 events will be divided among the 20 volunteers which in total should amass to 37-40 hours per volunteer for their festival stay.One event will be making a social community dinner together with the supervisor at the volunteer base camp for all those who would like to come.The other task will be before the music starts, and that will be repainting and decorating our container that is stationary at the camp. Here we can be creative and do something amazing with our imaginations.Every morning at 11, a meeting will also be held where you will be able to choose a concert to go to together if you wish for. We will also exchange information, talk about your experience so far and solve any issues you might have.
Accommodation and food:
Sleeping facilities:You will be sleeping in tents with sleeping bags. The host will try to reserve a space so that all Work Camp volunteers are able to stay at the same place. The supervisors will also be staying there. As of now, it might be necessary to bring your own tent and sleeping bag. In the near future, we might update the information if we are able to get some tents set up before arrival from what we have currently. SLEEPING BAGS ARE STILL A NECESSITYKitchen bathroom facilities: There will be a possibility to cook basic food, at the volunteer camp base. After every shift, the volunteer is given food tickets, that can be used anywhere in the festival (one ticket per shift). It is possible to buy some food in the town of Roskilde. It should take no longer than 20 minutes to get to the town.There will be camping showers available at the volunteer camping similar to these ones:In term of laundry, it is possible to do this at the festival, as the festival offers laundry services very close to the volunteer camping for a price (around 50 DKK per wash).

Unfortunately, we cannot take participants with disabilities.
The festival is the biggest one in Denmark and this will be the 75th anniversary so expect something special. It is generally surrounded by good vibes and amazing people. And all of your participation and help also supports us, as we get more budget for the various projects around the world.The work is generally placed outdoors. The weather in Denmark is unpredictable even though the festival is taking place during the summer, it might be important to bring a waterproof coat, some sweaters for the evening. But also, some shorts and flip flops because if the heatwave hits like a few years ago, it will be extremely warm.The language that will be spoken throughout the work will be English therefore it is mandatory that all participants speak it. Please do not be intimidated that some of your fellow volunteers may not be able to or are too shy to start speaking in English. Everyone is generally nice and are able to speak English.Previous experience is not needed, as you will be instructed
