As volunteer you will be able to experience the festival from behind the scenes, get valuable work experience, meet interesting people from all over the world and have a lot of fun while working!
You will get a festival pass with full access to concerts, workshops and other activities organized by Inferno and our partners. You will also get a Crew T-shirt, a Crew Pass, a festival bag and of course food and drinks during your shifts. In exchange you have to work at least 2 shifts (daytime or evening/night). Because Inferno is an indoor festival, most of the volunteer work take place during the festival’s 4 days (Thur-Sun). We always try to accomodate wishes to see a specific concert, but we cannot give any promises in advance.
Please make sure that all the information you write in your application is correct. And have in mind that the more available and flexible you are, the easier it is to assign work for you. When your application is approved, you will receive a confirmation email that you have been accepted as part of the Crew. Once you have confirmed to this, you will be invited to join our closed Facebook-group for volunteers. Approximately 5-6 weeks prior to the festival you will be assigned to a team, and you will then receive your work schedule, get in-time, meeting point and Team Leader. You have to confirm all your shifts by email. Failure to do so may result in you being removed from our list of volunteers, so please pay close attention to confirmation deadlines. Some teams will be completed early, some later, but we always try to send out the schedules as soon as possible. Please note that application approval and work shifts may follow each other shortly. A waiting list will be opened if your application is received after the teams have been completed. If you have any questions regarding the process, please contact Crew Manager by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to hear from you!

As part of the Accred Team you will handle ticket sales, exchange tickets for wristbands and register all our sponsors, collaborators, press and volunteers. This is the first arrival point for all the festival guests and also an important center for information. If you are serviceminded, sociable, attentive to details and able to greet people with a smile even during stressful times, this is the team for you!
Your job is to take care of our artists and make sure they have everything they need from the time of their get-in to after they go off stage. This job involves equipping and maintaining the dressing rooms and backstage areas, and we appreciate that you are responsible, solution-oriented and able to act quickly. Being an artist host is demanding, but fun. Do not apply if your sole purpose is to meet your favourite band – we require a highly professional attitude.
This is one of the few teams who work before the festival starts, and the job is to pack and make ready our popular Inferno bags. No experience needed, apply if you know that you are available prior to the festival and can count.
Noone goes hungry at our festival! This is a daytime job where you will be helping our heroic Catering Manager in serving food and drinks to our staff, keeping the area tidy and clean, and preparing snack platters for our technicians and stage crew. You should be familiar with the importance of coffee, and it's a plus if you actually thrive in the kitchen.
Making sure that our venue access points are safe and secure is one of the most important tasks at the festival! You will be checking wristbands at the main entrances/exits, the backstage entrances and the IMC-events. This is not a bouncer’s position, you are one of our friendly hosts with the amazing ability to say no, and stick to it while still smiling. You should be alert, attentive and preferably not colorblind.
You will assist the festival’s hotel coordinator with service duties related to our guests and activities. This may involve bar maintenance, helping out at beer tasting sessions or selling movie tickets, but you are happy to help wherever it is needed. As one of our very visual representatives, guests may ask you about the festival so it’s a big plus if you know how to explain the easiest walking route from the hotel to the venue in English. Or at least know how to use Google.
This team will make sure our hotel guests feel safe and get their beauty sleep. You may function as a volume control if the air guitar is played a bit too loud, or you may help guests find the way to their own beds. A bonus if you have experience from security work, but personal qualities such as being pleasant, calm and patient are more important. If you are a night owl and don’t mind sleeping during the day, you should definitely apply!
You will help making the venue ready with infrastructure for our stand merchants, art exhibitors, tattoo artists and invited collaborators. The job involves carrying and lifting so you should not be afraid to get your hands dirty, and be able to maintain a positive attitude while doing some physical work. Rigging occurs before and after the festival so you need to be available for work Wednesday, Thursday daytime and/or Sunday evening/night.
This is a daytime job where you serve as the Crew Manager’s assistant when there is something to pick up or buy (equipment, food etc.). Some days are calm, other days you are walking nonstop, but no matter the situation it is important to always be available. You should be in good health, know your way around Oslo, be independent and not easily bored. Having a driver’s license is not a requirement, but surely a plus (please write it in your application)!
You will work closely with the Stage Manager and help with the stage set-ups and load in/load out before, during and after the concerts. It’s great if you play an instrument and/or are familiar with sound equipment and stage tech, but as long as you can lift and push heavy boxes, are able to take orders from superiors and work carefully and independently, this is a great opportunity to experience the technical side of a festival. You are also in close proximity to the artists so we expect you to behave professionally and be serviceminded. Special requirements for work attire will apply.
