Volunteer camping hosts

As a camping host, you help to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and at home in the area we cover. All volunteers are enrolled in a team, each of which has four 8-hour shifts during the festival.

What are you going to do

Our task at Roskilde Festival consists primarily of being hosts (formerly called guards) on camping area J. This is where the Silent & Clean area is located. 

As camping hosts, our task is to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and at home in our area. We must also be on fire guard, keep the toilets (minus cleaning) and generally be well-placed hosts.

Each guard is divided into 2 independent groups. One group covers J-West and the other group covers J-East. You can flex between the two groups by agreement with the team leaders.

On each shift, the individual shift team is divided into teams, which switch between the different tasks during the shift. 

There are always two permanent team leaders on duty with you. The team leaders ensure that all tasks are distributed equally. It is also the leaders that you refer to as volunteers. And if there are problems or you have questions during the shift, you can always contact the team leaders.

The exact details of the work will be sent to you when you are registered.

When and how much should you volunteer

As a volunteer camping host with us, you have 4 guards every 8 hours. They are distributed throughout the festival week. Some of the guards lie while the music on the big stages plays, others lie before and after.

You must have day shifts, evening shifts and night shifts. There are three shifts per day. Each shift is eight hours.

The first guard team meets at 07.00 in the morning, so the night guard can come home and sleep. Other guards meet at 15.00, so that the morning team can come out to party. Third guard team meets at 23:00, so the evening team possibly. can reach the last party.

It is important that you show up on time so that your comrades on the previous shift can move on. In order to create a good working environment in the team, it is of course also important that everyone meets with a positive and open approach - both to the others on the team and to the festival guests, who are happy and festive.

You choose your guards yourself

When you register as a volunteer camping host with us, you choose your guards yourself. When you sign up for People, go to "The shift schedule" and select the shifts you want.

- You must select 4 guards.
You must choose 1 day shift (gold), 1 evening shift (silver), 1 night shift (bronze) + 1 optional shift day / evening / night.
There must be at least 1 guard between two guards.
- You must have two guards before the music starts.
- You must have two guards during the music period.

You now have the opportunity to choose exactly the guards that suit you.

In the table below you can see when the different teams have guards. And based on this plan, you can assess which team suits you best - so you are sure to see your favorite band, for example.
