Become a volunteer at Jazzfest

Jazzfest is looking for volunteers before, during and after Jazzfest 2021!

We are, as always, dependent on good helpers - who are the festival's face on the outside, and welcome artists and audience with a smile. If you have any questions or want to volunteer for this year's festival, you can contact us at or use our registration form. We welcome old and new hosts to the Jazzfest family.

Our hosts perform many different tasks for the festival, and there is something for everyone. You do not need to have previous experience, as long as you have a good mood and commitment. Working hours and number of shifts vary by work area. Artist hosts, for example, work longer but fewer shifts.

Here you can read more about the most common work areas:

Distributors hang up posters and distribute festival newspapers and flyers around Trondheim. This job is mainly done in advance of the festival.

The transport team works with the transport of artists, guests, instruments and other equipment before, during and after the festival. You must have a driver's license minimum class B to work with transport.

Festival Secretariat / Jazz Shop
Staffing of the festival secretariat - the festival's info center, and the Jazz shop. Artists, volunteers and the public come here to get information, get accreditations, buy / get tickets and shop cool Jazzfest merch.

Ticket sales / control
The ticket hosts work with the sale and scanning of tickets at the entrance to concerts. They also check accreditation and guest lists at concerts where applicable.

Audience host
The audience hosts keep an overview of the audience area with a focus on emergency exits. They also help with preparations and tidying up the venue, answer questions from the audience and help ensure that everyone has a good and safe concert experience.

Artist host
The artist hosts work with general artist care and follow the artists through the festival. They must have an overview of transport, accommodation and sound check. The artist hosts are also responsible for catering on the backstage.

As a volunteer host at Jazzfest, you get memories for life, valuable experience and the opportunity to get to know the city's most beautiful people. You also get free admission to all concerts, provided there is free capacity, and a copy of this year's festival shirt. When the festival is over, we arrange a volunteer party for everyone who has contributed to the festival.
