DISABLED

Tons of Rock is open and available to all. However, due to the nature of the festival grounds and the crowds, it might be difficult to access all areas of the festival in a wheelchair, and especially during rain. We do recommend that all wheelchair users bring a Companion, and Tons of Rock operates with free entry for Companions, provided that the wheelchair user is a festival ticket holder and has a valid proof of companionship. There is available HC-toilets at both camp and festival grounds.

There is a strict proof of age policy at all our serving points selling alcohol. A valid proof of age is credit/debit card with photo, drivers license or passport. If its discovered that one is abusing an id, or using a forged proof of age, the police will be contacted, and it will be reported.

 

ALCOHOL CONTROL

Our security crew have been instructed to be particularly vigilant concerning people visibly under the influence. Crew manager has, with the police, authority to demand proof of id, as well as to expel individuals from the area. Young individuals spotted enjoying alcohol who might look like they’re under 18 will be asked to show proof of age. Individuals proven to be under the age of 18 will have their goods confiscated, they will be expelled from the festival grounds, and their festival pass will be revoked.

If you are caught buying alcohol to a minor (an individual under the age of 18) you will be reported to the police.

Volunteering at Tons of Rock

Every year we have loads of people wanting to volunteer at Tons of Rock. Join us and contribute to Norways great rock- and metal festival in pleasant surroundings. See how the festival works from “within” and make new friends who share the same interests for festivals, rock and metal. Our experience is that the volunteers enjoy themselves during the festival, and many return year after year because they’re having a blast! You’ll obviously receive food while you’re working, a t-shirt, and day pass for a day that you’re not on shift. If you work a minimum of 2 shifts, you’ll receive a full festival pass, but in our experience many of you want to work during the whole festival period, and this is because its just so much fun!

Everyone who works will also receive a certificate of work, if desired, which could look good on a resume. Volunteering at Tons of Rock gives you great memories, new friends and work experience.

More information regarding registering coming soon.

Accomodation

TONS OF CAMPING

We are turning Ekeberg Camping to a festival camp – Tons of Camping – from Wednesday afternoon to Sunday. Here you’ll be staying at a 3 star camp site with all amenities (showers, toilets, laundry services, kiosk) right next to the festival grounds. It will be possible to purchase breakfast at the camp, and you are allowed to bring your own goods into the camp.

For safety reasons the area will be fenced in, and everyone wishing to enter the camp area must purchase a “Person ticket” at Ticketmaster in advance. Access to the camp will be controlled by security staff during the entire festival period.

Everyone staying at the festival camp will have their own exclusive entrance to the festival grounds, and you will avoid having to stand in line at the main entrance.
