As one of our volunteers you will be able to experience the festival from behind the scenes, get valuable work experience, meet interesting people from all over the world, have a lot of fun and see all the concerts you want when you’re not working!
Please make sure that all the information you write in your application is correct, and that you are in fact available the days you have chosen. The applications will be approved in batches. When your application is approved, you will receive a confirmation email that you have been accepted as part of the Crew.
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 the Crew, so please pay close attention to confirmation deadlines. Always reply when asked to do so.
Some teams will be completed early, some later, but we always 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 (email@example.com). Important info for volunteers will be announced closer to the festival.

At accreditation you exchange tickets for wristbands, conduct ticket sales and register all our sponsors, press and volunteers. If you are structured, serviceminded and able to greet people with a smile even during stressful times, this is the team for you! You should be comfortable around computers, but all necessary training will be provided on site. Working days: Thursday – Sunday.
As an artist host your job is to make sure the bands have everything they need from the time they arrive to the time they leave the venue. You are expected to be polite and discreet, responsible and serviceminded, and we appreciate that you can work independently and efficiently. Do not apply if your sole purpose is to meet your favourite band – we require a highly professional attitude! NB: Previous experience is desirable. Working days: Thursday – Sunday.
This is one of the few teams who work before the festival starts, and the job is to pack and make ready our popular tote bags. No experience needed, apply if you know that you are available prior to the festival and can count. Working day: Monday.
The morning team will be helping out in the kitchen, serving food and drinks to staff and volunteers and making sure the area is tidy and clean. The evening team will prep the kitchen for next day and prepare snack platters for our technicians and night crew. You take pride in having good hygiene, you understand the importance of coffee and it’s a plus if you actually thrive in the kitchen. Working days: Thursday – Sunday.
Making sure that our venue access points are secure is one of the most important jobs at the festival. You will be checking wristbands at all the entrances and exits, and this team allows you to see many different places inside the venue. You should be attentive, responsible, not easily offended and obviously not colorblind. It is important that you’re able to take orders and follow protocol. Working days: Thursday – Sunday.
Your workplace is at Clarion Hotel The Hub where you will be manning our Info-desk. Guests may approach you with any question related to the festival so it’s a big plus if you are language savvy, know your way around Oslo and have previously attended Inferno (either as guest or volunteer). You may also be asked to help out with other tasks according to what’s needed. Working days: Thursday – Saturday.
Work 5 days and get the whole festival for free! To apply for a position in the IMC-team you need to be available from Tuesday to Saturday. The work is during daytime and you will have all evenings off. You’ll be given a specific role/responsibility, for example accreditation, tickets, Music Clinic assistant or rigger/runner, so please write your personal qualities/previous experience so we can find the best suitable task for you. We are specifically looking for people who are organized, sociable and trustworthy, and hopefully proficient in several languages and/or familiar with technical equipment. If applying for this team, remember to select all the 5 days (Tue-Sat).
We do not have alot of rigging involved since Inferno is an indoor festival, but we still need to prepare the venue with the appropriate set-ups for our vendors, art exhibitors and tattoo artists. This job involves lifting and carrying fences, tables and other furniture, so you should be prepared to do some physical work while being able to maintain a positive attitude. Rigging has limited work hours and you need to be available before and after the festival. Working days: Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday night (when the festival is over).
This is a daytime job where you work 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. 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). Working days: Thursday – Sunday.
You will work closely with the Stage Manager and technical crew, help with load in/out and set up the stage plots for all the bands. It’s great if you play an instrument and/or are familiar with sound equipment and stage tech, but as long as you are able to follow instructions, can work both carefully and quickly and can push heavy flight cases, this is a great opportunity to experience the technical side of a festival. You are in close proximity to the artists so we expect you to behave professionally. Special requirements for work attire will apply. Working days: Thursday – Sunday.
