When you are volunteering at COPENHELL, catering is supplied for you during your shifts. Are you on shift before and/or after the festival, we will offer you lunch and dinner in Local Catering, as well as beverages and snacks during the day. Are you on shift during the festival, you will be given a number food and drink tickets, you can distribute yourself. So, remember to eat breakfast at home and if you want, bring a canteen or drinking bottle to work.

In the days before and after the festival, a ”Snack-patrol” will be patrolling every nook and corner of the site with beverages, snacks and other assortments.

During the festival, Local Catering is still open, so you can get water, juice water, coffee and tea, if you are on a shift. However, the ”snack-patrol” will be parked in the garage.

Remember to coordinate with your team leader, if you leave your post.


At COPENHELL the water from the various sinks is drinkable. However, the water from the toilet wagons is not drinkable.

You are more than welcome to bring a canteen/drinking bottle and refill water bottles.


We recommend practical and pleasant attire, which you do not mind getting dirty. We also recommend proper footwear, rain clothes, and extra shirt and sunscreen in your bag. Weather can change and be a mixture of scorching sun and violent rain pour, so as always in Denmark. Prepare for anything.

Are you on shift before or after the festival, you will be required wearing safety shoes. You can bring your own, but they must be approved for category S1P, S3 or S5. We also loan out safety shoes, but remember a pair of extra socks, so they are comfortable wearing.


COPENHELL has a very limited number of camping sites available for volunteers, that needs a spot. Whomever offered a camping spot, depends on an individual assessment which can be e.g., distance to place of residence and shift schedule.

Each camping spot consists of two people. So, when you apply for a spot in the camping area, it will be in pairs. Both people must be registered as a volunteer. You cannot share a volunteer spot with a regular guest.

If you already have a couple set up, just send a mail to with both persons full names, which must match with names you wrote when you signed up

If you do not have a partner, you can join our Facebook Group COPENHELL frivillig camping match up, where volunteer people without a camping partner, can find one. After you find a partner, you send a mail to with both people’s names.

Remember, you have to bring ONE tent, which is no larger than 2,5 x 2,5 m, including guy lines and others.

Deadline for applying for a campingspot will be June 1th
