Kamfest needs volunteers!

Publisert: 26/09/2017

Do you want to experience one of Norway’s most amazing chamber music festivals from the inside? Do you want to experience excellent chamber music for free? Become a volunteer today and become part of the festival team, and you will get an experience of a lifetime!


We need volunteers for several different tasks. We have a total of eight groups that you can choose from. Working hours are variable, and we need help from early morning to late night.  All groups are managed by a project leader who oversees their group, assign shifts, and send out necessary information.

There will be an information meeting for all registered volunteers. Date: TBA

Special in 2021:

Due to the corona pandemic we need more help than ever. We will make sure this is a safe experience for the audience, volunteers, and artists. We will post updates about the corona situation on our website here.

We offer:

As a thank you for your effort and time we offer one copy of the festival t-shirt and access to selected rehearsals. In addition, there will be access to concerts if there is availability, but due to capacity restrictions in 2021 we have fewer seats than usual. You will also be invited to the volunteer wrap party. And last but not least, we hope to give you the experience of your life!

We want you to be: friendly, enthusiastic and ready to lend a hand!

This group is responsible for distribution of the festival magazine, flyers, and posters in Trondheim and the surrounding area before and during the festival. We are looking for people who are available in the period before the festival, and people with and without a driver’s licence.


This group works with ticketing and audience management at the different concert venues. As a ticket seller/checker and audience manager you will be in contact with the audience and you should contribute to informing the audience about the festival programme and guide them with a service minded attitude. Ticket controllers help with admission to the concerts and stand guard by the emergency exits. Ticket sellers will receive necessary training in our ticket and payment systems ahead of the festival. Working hours are mainly at night.


The rigging crew are hands on during setup and wrap up at the venues, they transport instruments and assist with technical rig if necessary. Some of the work can be physically demanding. Work hours vary, and we need people from early morning to late nights.


This group is based at our festival office at Scandic Nidelven Hotel. The tasks vary from accreditation and ticket sales to answering questions from the audience, artists and others. As an office volunteer you will be in direct contact with all of the people at the festival, and we are especially looking for friendly and service minded workers. You will get all necessary training in using our ticket and payment systems. The work is divided in two shifts between 10:00 and 18:00.


The catering group serves food and refreshments at the different venues to artists, project leaders and volunteers. Catering workers will perform simple kitchen tasks, and we are looking for service minded and tidy people for this job.


This group transports artists and guests to, from and around the festival. We need serious and experienced people with good driving skills. Most transport is to and from the airport, but there is also some driving in the city. Work hours vary from early mornings to late nights, and we also need drivers in the days before and after the festival week. You do not need to have a car of your own as the festival will provide this for your shifts. 


Fargespill Trondheim is a magnificent show with children and youth from all over the world who perform alongside professional musicians. In 2020 a lot of the work takes place in the week before the festival, with rehearsals from Monday-Thursday. We need someone who can help us during the day and some afternoons. Monday Sep 21st we will need help all day. This is truly a rewarding project to be a part of. Read more about Fargespill here. 


Do you want to work closely with our chamber music academy TICC (Trondheim Chamber Music Competition & Academy)? This group guides the ensembles through the weeks master classes leading up to the academy’s closing concert. Read more about TICC here.
