A huge THANK YOU to all amazing volunteers, Urkult 2017 would not have happened without you!

We hope you enjoyed the festival and that you wish to return. Application for Urkult 2018 will open in the spring.


Without volunteers there would be no Urkult. Every year about 600 volunteers works together to create the festival. In exchange of a festival ticket, some food and campsite on the volunteers camping (only tents!) you work 12 hours, or more if you like, during the festival. The hours are usually divided in 2-3 shifts. Read more about the volunteers camping at "Camping info" in the menu up to the right.

Each volunteer will be placed in a workgroup, for example the "recycling group", "entrance group" or "pancake group". Every group has a person (or sometimes two) in charge. When the work schedule is set the person in charge of your group (or the volunteer co-ordinator) will send the schedule to you by e-mail, along with other information. Most of the groups has an introduction meeting for all their volunteers on thursday before the festival starts, some groups has their meetings as early as 12 pm. Volunteers need to make sure their ride will take them to Näsåker in time for the meeting.
Last but not least, as you probably figured - we require that you are entirely sober during your shifts!

The co-ordinator for the volunteers start to work in the middle of June but answers emails already during spring. We start to sort volunteers into the workgroups at the end of June, the ones who applies first will get sorted first. Often we are in need of more volunteers even the last days before the festival, but if you have any requests of where, when or whom you wish to work with - make sure to apply as early as possible!
If you have any questions please send them to volontar@urkult.se
