Service locations on Fastaval
On Fastaval you will find a number of service points that should make your experience at the Congress as good as possible. All areas are run by Fastaval organizers with the help of Do-It-Yourselfs. Below is an overview of the various service locations Fastaval:
The Information (also called the Info) is Fastaval’s one-stop place if you need help or information. This is where you need to go if you have questions, are lost, have problems with your scenario, need a band-aid, need the phone number for the nearest taxi service or need to get in contact with the organizers.
The members of the Information Crew are called Infonauts and they are easily recognized by their orange colors and fez hats. It is the Information you meet on your first day at Fastaval when you are checked in and receive your wristband. Likewise, it is the Information which ensures that all scenarios have the players they need and that any vacant spots are given to interested players from the reserve queue.
If you want to help out with the Information, you can become a trainee for a day. Contact the Information if you want to try out being an Infonaut.
The Information is located at Mariagerfjord Gymnasium.
The safety hosts are a group of organizers who during all of Fastaval always are ready for a chat or a cup of coffee, if you as a participant should need it. Fastaval is a huge space with a lot of people, so the safety hosts offers a room where nothing is too small or too big to be talked about, if you need to talk something through.
The safety hosts don’t judge, but listens and creates a mental space where you can process your experiences.
As a starting point are all conversations confidential, but it is possible to reach out to other parties if you both find it helpful – on your own terms of course.
You can always reach the safety hosts on the phone number (not available yet) during Fastaval, or by reaching out to a Fastaval conductor near you.
There will also be posters around the premises with the safety hosts contact information.
The General on Duty is a person in charge that you can get hold of around the clock during Fastaval. The General on Duty can be contacted by both crew and participants via phone at +45 40 38 82 87.
Who is the General on duty?
The post of General on Duty rotates among the bunker crew. The current General on Duty can always be identified via their blue sash bearing the inscription “General”.
This year’s bunker crew are:
Top row, from the left: Martin Lindhardt, Andreas Ravn Skovse
Middle row, from the left: Marie Oscilowski, Anne Serup Grove, Katherine Abel
Bottom row, from the left: Ole Sørensen, Laura Gerlev Hansen and General Mads Havshøj
More information on the bunker can be found here.
How may the General of Duty be of help?
You can always call the General on Duty if you need help. For example, if you or others have been injured, if you feel you are in an unsafe situation or if there are problems with disturbances from outside the convention.
In the case of an acute emergency, you should always contact public emergency services first, by dialing 112.
In the majority of cases, the General on Duty is mainly a helping hand for this year’s crew. During Fastaval it is the General on Duty who makes ad hoc decisions and helps solve any problems or incidents that may occur. It is also the General on Duty who brings the more serious problems to the attention of the bunker, so the whole bunker can be involved in resolving the situation.
Finally, the General on Duty has the keys to all rooms at Fastaval.
- If you are a participant or crew and you need information, the first point of contact is The Info.
- If you need someone to talk to or help mentally processing an incident you can always contact out Safety Hosts

At Fastaval, there are Fire Patrols around the clock.
The Fire Patrol consists of a small organizers’ group, which, each Fastaval, takes on the longest and toughest of night shifts so our participants and organizers can feel safe and sleep with ease. It is also the Fire Patrol who keeps the dorm in check and checks the bracelets so trespassers won’t gain access to your stuff.
You will find the Fire Patrol outside the dorm at Hobro Sports Center.
If you wish to help out at the Fire Patrol you can choose to use your DIT-task here.
With more than 900 participants, Fastaval produces more than two full industrial-sized containers of garbage every Easter. Dirtbusters is an organiser group dedicated to the heroic battle against garbage and Chaos, and keep Fastaval clean for the benefit of all of us. They are recognisable by their coveralls, their plunger-and-duct-tape weaponry and their battle names, which will definitely call to mind an assortment of cleaning agents.
Dirtbusters work around the clock at Fastaval to create a clean and comfortable environment.
At Fastaval a lot of dishes get dirty. Though participants are generally good at placing their dirty dishes in the correct places for getting clean, it does not end there. Each Fastaval has a fresh team of dishwashers and together with DIT’s (Do It Together) they make sure everything is cleaned and returned to their proper place. That is the explanation for where all the clean plates, cutlery and other tableware comes from. The Dishes is a relatively invisible organizer assignment, but the ones doing it always do so with a smile and a high work morale. The Dishes at Fastaval is a super important task, so be sure to high-five the next The Dishes organizer you meet.

Every year at Fastaval there is a group of quite extraordinary organizers who carry, drive and organize the transport of equipment and goods to
and from Fastaval. The Truckers do a massive logistical and manual work, which is utterly necessary for running a convention like Fastaval.
odd times both before and after Fastaval they move furniture to the Oasis, fridges to the Bar, pick up box after box of stuff for the Info and so
much more. The Truckers are a small, relatively unknown group of organizers, but they do an invaluable piece of work. So if you see a Trucker
during Fastaval, go ahead and give them a high-five.
It’s a Fastaval tradition that every year, a TV production team spend all their convention recording, cutting, and writing little skits and
entertaining features that catch the spirit of Fastaval and the special mood. The show is shown every night at Fastaval in The Oasis at 1.00 AM.
Through the years there have been many different TV production teams with different names. For example John-TV, Fasta-TV, Propaganda-
TV, The Otto Channel, and the Penguin Lounge.
At this year’s Fastaval, the TV show is produced by the Penguin Lounge.
