Like our Facebook page for volunteers which will be updated often.

We reserve the right to screen all registrations we receive.


Please read our Rules of Engagement.
It is very important to us that you know what you can expect from us and what we expect of you.


You must be at least 18 years of age before the June 1st 2017. This is a requirement from our insurance and can not be bent in any way.


A period of effort is a period where you can/will help Tinderbox. You can choose between four different periods and you have to choose at least one of them. You can also choose more than one and then have a bigger chance of becoming a part of a team – and choose between many different teams. Our teams are defined by the periods of effort. That means that you can see which team/teams you can choose between, when you have chosen your period(s) of effort.

Before Tinderbox – approximately 24 hours of effort:
On this team you are helping us build the site and the period of effort is from the beginning June to the opening of the festival site Thursday June 22nd 2017

During Tinderbox – approximately 16 hours of effort:
This is where it all happens and where you are a part of running Tinderbox making sure our guests have the best experience. The period of effort is June 22nd to June 24th 2017.

After Tinderbox – approximately 24 hours of effort:
On this team you are helping packing the festival down. The period of effort is from the night between Saturday and Sunday (June 24th-25th) to Tuesday June 27th.

Before/After Tinderbox – approximately 24 hours of effort:
In this period of effort your shifts will normally be divided  – one shift before Tinderbox and one shift after Tinderbox. It is not every team who offers this period of effort.

Your hours of effort pr. shift will be defined and distributed by your volunteer coordinator/team leader. Expect that your hours of effort will be distributed on more than one coherent shift, unless other information i sprovided by your volunteer coordinator/team leader.


Choose the team you want to be a part of from the list, you can see based on your choices in the registration.

If your team of choice do not appear on the list of opportunities during your registration it is because:
1: The team do not match your period(s) of effort.
– Try another period.
2: The team do not exist anymore at Tinderbox or is transformed to something else.
– Choose another team.
3: The team is already filled up.
– Choose another team.


During your registration you have the opportunity to note the name of one of your friends you want to work with. It is necessary that you choose the same team to share shifts.
We can not guarantee that all volunteers at Tinderbox will have all their wishes fulfilled. Please respect that we are working with a very large puzzle – we are doing the best we can.


Your volunteer coordinator/team leader will make duty roster and make it available under your profile at RUBY. We hope to have it ready in the beginning of May.

You have to accept your duty roster in RUBY, so we are sure that you have seen it. If the acceptation is missing we are serving our right to un register and blacklist you. You accept your duty rooster under ”My Ticket” when it is ready for you.


If you need to exchange a shift it will be possible to do so in RUBY. It is your volunteer coordinator/team leader who decides, if the different teams have access to this feature. Contact your volunteer coordinator/team leader regarding any questions about exchanging shifts.


If you, in your registration, choose a team where there are free spots, you are secured a spot unless our Rules of Engagement are breached at any time. You also receive a mail after your registration is complete (if you have gotten through the registration correctly) which confirms that you are secured a spot as volunteer on Tinderbox 2017.

If you only are registrated on our waiting list then you are not guaranteed a spot before you hear more from us.


If all our teams are filled up, you have the option of joining our waiting list. This is a general list and is considered as one large pool.

You are not guaranteed a spot as a volunteer at Tinderbox by being on our waiting list and you are not able to have any influence on which team you get to be a part of. We select and allocate spots from the established requirements combined with your choice of periods of effort. This means that we do not select through “first in, first seated” and the more periods of effort you choose, the more opportunities there is for us to choose you.

If we put you on a team, you will receive a mail. Then you can login here and see which team we have located for you, as well as a contact to your volunteer coordinator/team leader.


All registrations are binding after June 12 2017.
After the 1st of June our Rules of Engagement will apply regarding late cancellation.


Please read our Rules of Engagement.
It is very important to us that you know what you can expect from us and what we expect of you.


RUBY is the name of our volunteer system.
It is a system where you log in, see your team and get the information which only concerns the volunteers at Tinderbox. RUBY is right here.

We update RUBY all the time. Do you have inputs for practical or effective features, please write us a mail.


Before your registration is accepted you need to confirm your e-mail address. After you enter you e-mail adress, you will receive a link in you mailbox. Please, click on this link. When you have clicked on the link you can go through with the registration.

If you do not receive an e-mail with this link, please see if it has landed in your spam folder.

Is this not the case, write to our technical support.


If you have forgotten your password please click on ”forgot password?” and make a new one.

If you did not forget your password then make a detailed description of how you experience the error. Send the description and your user name/e-mail address to our technical support. We will help you as quickly as possible.


Do you have any suspicions about technical errors or do you experience moodiness from RUBY?

Tickets and prices

See Tickets for details about ticket types and prices.

For any questions about ticket refunds we refer to our general terms of sales:
Purchase of tickets is not subject to any right of return. Accordingly, you cannot have a refund of your money. If you are prevented from attending the event, Tinderbox is unable to help you. Tickets are only refunded if the event is cancelled.

The line-up may be subject to change.

For more information contact [email protected]

Notice: We strongly advice against using black market sites such as Viagogo, who deliberately sell overpriced tickets.
When you buy a ticket from someone who is unknown to you, the ticket can in theory be either a fake or copied, which means the bar-code won’t work at the entrance. In this case you will be denied access to the festival, and Tinderbox will not be held responsible for this.
Therefore we cannot verify or be accountable for tickets, which have been purchased unofficially.
