Fólkvangr Viking Village - Reenactors Pass

The Viking village is a joint effort between the reenactors and the festival. Together we give “the civilians” a whole new experience, in this mix of history and music. We, the festival, take care of infrastructure, safety, regulations and routines – you will be your beautiful selves. Either you are just present, with your tent and your historical clothes, or you also add your handcraft/skills to your presence. Either way, both our jobs is to make this experience a good one – for all. With this great opportunity comes great responsibility. If the chieftain finds you to violate this missions safety or positivity, you will lose your right to stay in the camp.

Fólkvangr is situated close to Gildehallen, in a field by the main festival area. The same general rules apply for the ordinary festival camp and Fólkvangr, but with a few changes/additions. The Reenactors Pass is meant for viking or medieval reenactors - therefore you are obliged to camp and dress historically when staying in Fólkvangr.

Please read before registering!


Check-in and setting up camp is available from noon Monday 14 August, and we recommend that you arrive Wednesday 16 August at the latest. You might have difficulties driving your gear to Fólkvangr after Wednesday as the area will be blocked from entering with cars. Get your wristbands and driving permits at the Midgard Historical Center.

All cars must be out of Folkvangr by noon (12:00) Wednesday.

The fighters will reside in Fólkvangr. This area needs to be respected, i.e. guests are prohibited from touching or trying out equipment without permition from the owner(s).

Weapons are forbidden – even blunt ones. Only Midgardsblot’s hired fighters are allowed any sort of weapons.

IMPORTANT: We understand the need for tools that can unfortunately be abused as weapons, but you bring them at your own peril, and they cannot be taken outside of Fólkvangr, by you or anyone else. Any tools that can be used as weapons must be hidden in tent and/or out of view when not in use.

Listed below are some general rules. When you apply, get your ticket link and purchase your ticket – you will receive a more substantial set of rules. These MUST be read in order for you to get through registration when arriving at camp. If the rules you receive with your tickets differ from the ones on this page, it will be because situation has changed. The daily “morning meetings” at 10am might also bring small changes – all depends on the situation, weather and safety etc.

  • There will be a designated area for a bigger campfire to sit around at night. Campfires by your tent shall be placed 2m/7 feet from nearest tent.
  • When not used for cooking, we would like it to not be fed – let it burn out or put it out.
  • No campfire should be left unattended. If you leave your camp, put it out.
  • Use a fire pan that is at least 15 cm (6′′) above the ground.
  • Firewood will be provided for you, but try not to take more than you will need each day.
  • Ashes must be completely extinguished before dumping them safely in a designated area.
  • All tents must have a fire extinguisher placed to the right on the inside of the tent entrance.
  • No outside food or drink is allowed in the festival area. If you need to go grocery shopping during the festival, please enter through the designated gates. Show your wristband to the guards posted, they will be instructed to let you pass straight on through to Fólkvangr.
  • The festival area will have bars which are open until after midnight, and is therefore subject to alcohol restrictions (by Norwegian law) during opening hours. Fólkvangr is not affected by this, but please respect the guidelines stated in the general festival rules, and pay attention to the festival staff.
  • Keepers of the Reenactors Festivalpass are obligated to camp and dress historically (viking/ medieval). We do not adhere to "plastic alarms", but we do appreciate that you pick up after yourselves, and use the waste containers provided. Be a clean viking!
  • Fólkvangr will be open to the regular audience for a limited time each day during the festival, but this does not mean that you are under obligation to "be on display" (as you would at any historical festival)
  • You will be given a designated area for setting up your tent(s) upon arrival. Please let us know if you have any wishes for who else you'd like to camp with (other groups etc). We can't make any promises besides doing our best.
  • If you need to sell your ticket(s), you should contact us because of the special requirements for the Reenactors Pass. The recipient(s) of your tickets must also register and be accepted. We might ask you for pictures or «proof» that you are eligible to buy the Reenactors Pass. This is simply because we don't know you yet!
  • If there is any changes or new information, we will send it by email to the registered email adress. The person who registers, should forward any information to the other registered participants in the party.
By registering, you agree to full responsibility regarding this information and rules.
