The sign-up is open!

Sign up here

Sign-up for food, activities and wear closes on February 23th.

It is possible to sign up in advance right up until Fastaval starts. However, there is a deadline about 1.5 months before Fastaval, where you can sign up for wear, food and activities. If you sign up after this deadline, you can only sign up for entrance and accommodation.


Mattress rental

If you are staying at Hobro Idrætscenter (Regular dormitory or family dormitory) it is possible to rent a foam mattress to sleep on. It is not possible to rent a mattress if you are staying at Mariager Fjord Gymnasium (Youth and organizer dorms, classrooms)

Bathing facilities

At both Hobro Idrætscenter and Mariager Fjord Gymnasium, there are gender-segregated changing rooms attached to the dormitories. At Hobro Idrætscenter, there will also be a gender-neutral changing room and private shower rooms that you can use.



At Fastaval there are a number of different accommodation options that can be added to your sign-up. In addition to specific rules for some of the dorms, in general:

  • Man skal opføre sig ordentligt, og være stille i sovesalen – også når lyset er tændt
  • The lights in the dorms are switched off, but come on between 13:00 and 16:00.
  • Alarms may only be set on half hours (08:30, 12:30 etc.) and preferably not between 20:30 and 06:30. Do not snooze or set multiple alarms.


Regular dormitory

The large dormitory at Hobro Idrætscenter is the regular solution that most of our participants use. The dormitory is located 100 meters from Mariagerfjord Gymnasium, where Fastaval's activities take place. At the sports center you will also find Fastaval's bar area, which is located at a good distance from the dormitory.

Youth dormitory

Participants aged 15-17 have the option to stay overnight in the youth dormitory at Mariagerfjord Gymnasium. Please note that there may be a limited number of places available.

Fastaval organizers have the opportunity to sleep in the organizer dormitory at Mariagerfjord Gymnasium. Please note that there may be a limited number of places. Organizers with regular shifts during Fastaval are prioritized if there is a shortage of places.

New in 2024, families with children can stay overnight in a new family dormitory at Hobro sports center. This is not a children's dormitory, so at least one adult is expected to stay overnight with the children they are responsible for. It is left to parents/guardians to decide if their children are old enough to sleep in a dormitory where there is an expectation of being quiet and calm and where it will be relatively dark most of the time.
Participants under 15 can only stay overnight at Fastaval if they sleep with their guardian in the family dormitory.

If you need to spend the night in a quieter environment with fewer people than in a dormitory, you can stay in a classroom at Mariager Fjord Gymnasium. Each classroom accommodates up to 10 sleeping participants.

Important: Classrooms are reserved for people with special sleeping needs and there are a limited number of spaces. Classrooms are sober sleeping rooms.


If you would like to get in touch with us about special needs, please contact the accommodation manager by email or note it in your sign-up.

If you want to sleep at Fastaval but have sleeping needs that are not met by the above options, please contact the above email as soon as possible. We can't promise we can help, but we'd love to try.

Fastaval has drawn up some guidelines in a "Code of Care" on how to create a good Fastaval experience for yourself and your fellow participants. Read them here.

Electrical equipment

It is not allowed to plug in electrical equipment, such as kettles, toast machines, etc. at the location, as this may cause power cuts. If this is not respected, the equipment will be confiscated and can be picked up on clean-up Monday after Fastaval.

Mobile and computer chargers are allowed.


Only vendors approved by Fastaval are allowed to sell food, drink, and merchandise.
You can only pay with card or Mobilepay at Fastavals service- and sales venues.


Fastaval appointed sleeping areas must be used for sleeping.

Fire safety regulations must be obeyed. Use only the marked areas in the sleeping area for sleeping. Luggage and sleeping gear must be placed within the marked areas. The Brandvagt (the fire safety group) will move all gear found outside the marked areas.

The sleeping area can only be used if you’ve bought access to the sleeping area. The “Brandvagt” will be checking if you have the necessary ticket by checking your bracelet at the entrance to the sleeping area at the Sports Center.

Alcoholic beverages

At Mariagerfjord Gymnasium all consumption of alcoholic beverages is forbidden.

You must be 18 years or older to drink alcoholic beverages at Fastaval.

As a rule, Fastaval allows no alcoholic beverages except those sold by Fastaval vendors. This rule is suspended during the Otto party on sunday evening.


Smoking will be allowed in “Tågefyrsternes Dal” (The Valley of the Mist Lords) at the Gymnasium all through Fastaval, the same is true for the Main entrance to the Idrætscenter (Sports Center) at the Bar.
At the Oasis smoking is allowed from 10 in the morning until 1 at night. Smoking after 1 is not allowed due to consideration for the neighbors.


Please show appropriate respect for the neighbors to the event at all times, we ask that you show careful consideration while outside.

Under Danish law, any consumption of or distribution of illegal substances is strictly prohibited.

The Main Organizers of Fastaval reserves the right to amend the rules during the Convention for the sake of the Convention and the well-being of the participants.
