Do you have questions about this year's Spring Festival, then you can find the answers here.
... And if you have a question that you can't find the answer to here, then write an e.-mail to email@example.com, and then we will get back to you.
Where and when?
This year the Spring Festival takes place on Friday the 5th of May from 14:00 to 02:00.
The festival site is placed on Nørre Campus, where you can enter the site from Universitetsparken, Nørre Allé and Tagensvej. The entire Universitetsparken will be closed off and turned into bike parking, so you are very welcome to park your bike here while having fun at the festival.
Who can participate?
The festival is for UCPH’s entire population: Academic staff (VIP), technical and administrative staff (TAP and students. Remember your UCPH-ID - that’s your entrance pass.
It is not possible to bring along guests, family etc, who aren’t related to UCPH. But if your institute have visiting researchers, collaborators etc, who doesn’t have a UCPH-ID, then send an email to VIP@kufestival.dk as soon as possible and latest on Tuesday the 2nd of May.
How are the accessibility of the festival site?
There will be easy access for those with impaired mobility, wheelchair users etc.
We will also make sure that there is appropriate restrooms and access to the audience areas of the stages, if you need this. Feel free to contact us at VIP@kufestival.dk, if you have special needs. We will do our best to accommodate this.
What am I allowed to bring with me?
You’re welcome to bring your backpack, blankets, your (plastic) water bottle and other items that can make your festival experience as pleasant as possible without being a nuisance to the other guests.
We’re making sure that there’s plenty of seating available, but you are of course welcome to use the lawn areas too.
You’re not allowed to bring in beverages, camping chairs, tents etc.
Is everything outdoors?
Yes. The UCPH Spring Festival is an outdoor festival, so remember to bring warm clothes.
We have a huge tent by the Totem stage, but the rest of the event is held outside without covering. If it looks like it might rain, we recommend bringing a water proof jacket and sensible footwear.
How about food?
There will be food vendors at the festival and we’re striving to have something for everyone.
Whether you’re in the mood for a big juicy burger or a vegan dish, there’ll be something available for you - and the prices will be student friendly on top.
We will continually keep you updated with the planned vendors and food trucks so keep an eye on the website.
We’ll also have 8 different bars at the festival site, where you can buy beer, sodas, ciders and much more. The bars are manned by volunteers and the profit will go to the music bookings for the festival.
A few words about safety
There will be medics present at the festival site all afternoon, evening and night. Their specific location will be noted on the map of the festival site and it will be clearly marked by signs on the day as well.
The entire festival site will be surrounded by a fence and there will be three entrance/exits. There will be access control at every entrance, so remember your UCPH ID-card.
Remember that there will be a lot of people present at the festival, so take good care of your possessions. Leave your jewels, computer and other valuables at home and take good care of yourself and your fellow students and colleagues during the festival.
A little bit about our alcohol and drug policy
There will be plenty of opportunities to buy cheap beer, sodas and drinks during the festival, and therefor it’s not permitted to bring your own beverages apart from a water bottle.
Being in possession of or under the influence of drugs and illegal substances will lead to an immediate expulsion from the event and festival site.
How can I join as a volunteer?
Without volunteers - no UCPH Spring Festival.
Normally we are 3-400 volunteers from all faculties and the university’s central administration, who takes care of bartending, safety and access, stage setup and other exciting and important tasks during the festival. A volunteer shift is approx. 4 hours and you receive food and drink vouchers + a t-shirt on the day.
Thursday the 20th of April we have this year’s big volunteer meeting at Nørre Campus, where we’ll go through the plan for the day, have a walk around the festival site, answer questions and generally just make sure that everyone is ready for the big day.

How can I contact the festival organisers?
If you have a great idea for an event or activity at the festival, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve lost something
We gather all the found items and will bring them to Studenterhuset over the weekend of the festival. Fill out the form at www.studenterhuset.com/lost-found with a desciption of the lost items, then we will do our best to reunite everything with their owners on the Monday after the event.
Unfortunately it is not possible to “just drop by” to check whether we’ve found your lost things after the festival. In 2015 we found almost 100 lost items; for instance phones, wallets and keys. To ensure that everything is returned to the rightful owner, we are going to keep an organised registration system. That gives you the safety of knowing, that if we find your things, you will also be the one getting them back again.
