The participating groups

The Karlsøy Festival has always been a festival for people who want to contribute and participate. Now we will refine the collective elements even more and focus on organizing groups and activities for participants. 

We want to create a vibrant meeting place where committed people and activists can learn, play and create together during the week. We will be an arena where it is possible to realize oneself and one's expression together with the other participants. 

ANY are participants and pay one price (NOK 600) for the whole week which includes simple breakfast and dinner in addition to all activities, concerts and other experiences.

The kitchen and serving group

In the kitchen and serving group, we prepare good food together with skilled people from the best ingredients available. In this group we also collect some of the good growth that is found on the island. And this will be food both for the communal meals and for sale. In addition, someone has to sell food in the evening during the hours the sale lasts.

The children's and youth group

Do you want to help create fun days for children, with cooking, activities and fun things happening? In this group you can get creative, put color and patterns on the area with the kids, paint tickets and do lots of other fun

Caretaker and practical group

We have to make places to shelter from the rain, to set up lavvos where people can sleep and pick up trees that will stay for the bonfires.

If you like to build, fix and be practical, you like to be out and work with your hand and body - then join this group!

The environmental and cleaning group

In this group you can help to arrange a good environment for all of us. The festival house needs a wash once in a while. In addition, we need people to think about how we take care of nature on the island. 

Do you have ideas on how we can facilitate that as many people as possible are as environmentally friendly as possible? Then we will be happy if you sign up for this group.

The marketing and documentation group

Our role is to collect and disseminate information about everything that happens at the festival. From Tuesday 2 August, there is usually a program from early in the morning until late in the evening. Then it is important that people get the right information at the right time.

The host group

Make everyone who comes to the island feel welcome! At the gate, in the office and all around. In this group, you help to provide information about ferry routes or bar rules, take care of the participants in various ways and arrange the breakfasts and general meetings. 

You can also be used as a potato in this group, so if you are ready for a bit of everything - welcome to the group!

Program and technical group

If you light up when you hear things like XLR, CAT-6 and HDMI then this group is for you. Technical group is responsible for sound, light and network on the festival site and the rest of the island. Do you want to hang out with Kimba and Rune and arrange concerts at Zapatista bar, Lillescena and Storscena? Then this is the group for you!
