If you are a reenactor and would like to volunteer in the new Fólkvangr Viking Village, or wish to volunteer there for some other reason, please visit the Fólkvangr Viking Village page under the Vikings tab.
This is a very important role on the sight! You take care of all the people at the festival. Day and night we are in need of great people to make sure the festival site is a safe place to be. Of course there will be swordfights and people will make moshpits, but we need you to be there and help out if one falls and needs help.
There is also a camp site and a parking lot that needs attention, if someone might have had too much mjod we might have to tell them to sing in a lower voice since others are sleeping. Or what if someone all of the sudden needs to go to the hospital (that won't happen), we need someone at the parking lot meeting up with the ambulance.
You are our hero! In this role you will be building the infrastructure of the whole festival site, you are the one making the festival happen. So that later on we can have awesome bands playing on stage. Or maybe you are one of those amazing persons helping us tear down the festival, making the historic ground look untouched again. Either way; we need a lot of great peoples, so bring a happy mood and be prepared for anything.
The festival arena is big, and we have a beautiful sight to take care of. If you like a walk and want to have the opportunity to walk all over the the festival area during work, this is your thing. You will be changing bins, checking that there is toilet paper on the crapper, and see to that there's not trash all over the ground.
You'll fix and do whatever that needs to be done; one minute you'll be making a fence for a sword-fight, the next you'll be painting a sign for the bar or be stage security.
You need to have the drivers license to apply for this role
(FULL) If you get starstruck easily, this is not your thing. Your job is to greet the band at arrival, and make sure that they have everything they need. These shift last the whole day.
(FULL) Accreditation is the first people to greet all festival guests, that includes press, volunteers and festival guests. You'll be the first and last person people see at the festival site so if you're a serviceminded person that likes humans, we'd love to have you on the accreditation team.
You will be the god/goddess with the different beverages which the guest will worship. Remember you're the face of the festival, and the keeper off the liquid gold, so there is a certain responsibility.
Your main task as a driver is to make sure that we get our artist to/form the festival, and sometimes helps other roles out with fetching stuff. I have to state the obvious; it's very important that you have the drivers licence for this role.
Everybody needs to eat! EVERYBODY! This is the post that everybody will love to visit. It is preferable if you're a "foodie" and knows how to handle stress (might be waves of volunteers and guests). We need people before, during and after the festival.
You might just be the one that walks the most during your shift, it is a demanding job to check up on all the different volunteers. On the walk you will hand out snacks and fruits, coffee and water, sunscreen and hugs. It's a very caring and lovely job, everyone loves the helping hand during a shift.
