Sign-up will open in January/February. A link to the sign-up will be available on this page and on the front page of the website when it opens.
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.
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)
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:
- Be well-behaved and quiet in the dormitory - even when the lights are on
- 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.
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.
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 email@example.com 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.
