As a volunteer we expect this from you:

Description of volunteer tasks

As a volunteer with us you get to choose between five different categories.
We cannot guarantee that you get the category you want, not all the categories need many people.
We also need people to do different tasks before, and after, the nine-days, so please let us know in the form if you are available for that.

Artist- and arena manager
It will be your job to make sure the venues are ready for when the audience arrive. You will be responsible for a couple of other volunteers, and you make sure they know their tasks. This also involves a short debrief with the volunteers after the end of the show. You are going to be the contact for the artists playing at the specific venue. As an artist and arena manager you can expect more responsibility and a bigger workload than other volunteers.
Our producer, Erling Falch, will be your closest leader.

Transport of guests/artists and equipment, mainly to and from the airport. The volunteer coordinator will put together a transport list together with the transport team.
You must have your driver licence. You will use the festivals own cars.
Your closest leader will be our volunteer coordinator, Mali Ryeng Gove.

Audience hosts
We need you who can be a welcoming face to our events. It will be your job to greet our audience and scan and sell tickets on cite before the concerts. Nordlysfestivalen and TIFF use TicketCo as our ticket provider. TicketCo has a very easy to work system for hosts, and you will be given a breif run through before the audience arrive.
We also might need you for other small tasks before and after the concerts.
Your closest leader will be the one responsible for your venue.

New this year – Artist host
We have a lot of guests/artists coming in from out of town, and we want to give them the opportunity to see some of Tromsø and the surrounding area in the short time that they are here.
For this task we need you who know the city well – either because you’ve lived here your entire life or because you are a great explorer! It is nice if you can provide some history, and maybe a crazy story about what happened at a corner in Storgata thirty years ago – or last week. We want you who love speaking to people and who knows where to grab lunch, and what you HAVE to see when you’re in Tromsø but don’t have much time. It’s a task you’ll have the opportunity to define a bit yourself and depends on what the guests have time to do.
Your closest leader will be our volunteer coordinator, Mali Ryeng Gove.

New this year – Well-being
Your task will be to make sure that everyone who’s a part of the festival has food and drinks availiable. You will be responsible for distributing the agreed upon food and drinks to the backstage area at all our venues – a plan will be made by our coordinator. You also make sure the volunteers have snacks and drinks availiable.
Your closest leader will be our volunteer coordinator, Mali Ryeng Gove, and we will appoint some extra responsibility to one of the volunteers.

If you have any questions – please contact our volunteer coordinator Mali Ryeng Gove.
