UKEN in Bergen is among the largest festivals in Vestland and consists only of student volunteers. While the festival will take place during March 2024, the work has already started. The UKEN festival will in and of itself be incredibly fun, but the work and planning towards the festival is undeniably the most rewarding and memorable thing you can participate in as a student in Bergen. Here you will meet students from all over Bergen, get responsibility from early on, make useful experiences and of course – have loads of fun doing it!

The beating heart of the UKEN festival is the UKEN revue. With traditions tracing all the way back to 1946, it has since then gone on to win multiple awards in the Norwegian Studentrevue Competition and has served as the debuting stage for many, now well established, Norwegian comedians. In addition to the revue, UKEN offers a multitude of events, spanning from big to small concerts and shows, world record attempts, themeparties and much, much more. 50 Cent, Backstreet Boys and Kygo are just some if the artists that have visited UKEN through the years.

With all this said, we personally feel that the thing that truly makes UKEN special is the sense of community and belonging that occurs while planning and running the festival. UKEN can offer tasks and assignments that suits your flavor and guarantee both friends and memories that will last you a lifetime. UKEN is now hiring for the second time, and we highly recomd that you apply to a part of the UKEN family! Don´t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding UKEN (or if you just feel like chatting). This is something you don´t want to miss!


Dear fellow student!

The UKEN family will finally grow! While we are currently around 30 fUKENsjonærer, we will soon be over 100! The effort the crew has put in so far suggests that UKEN24 will be the best UKEN ever. Therefore, it’s only fitting that you join in and leave your mark on Western Norway's largest student-run cultural festival?

From my own experience, I can assure you that UKEN is without a doubt the most fun and most educational thing you can be a part of during your studies. If friends for life and unforgettable moments tempt you, do you really have any other choice? Search UKEN now and join an amazing adventure!

UKEN is without a doubt the largest subcommittee in the student union, and will eventually become over 1,000 fUKENsjonærer who will together create UKEN 24. Together we will put on a revue, concert and countless other fun events for people of all ages. There is plenty of room for ideas here, and we are now looking for people who want to help shape the festival right from the start!

This is the second time UKEN has advertised positions, and here I promise you will find something that tempts you. We are looking to fill several different positions, where the only thing we look for is commitment and passion! I had the opportunity to join early last UKEN, and it is without a doubt the best choice I have made during my time as a student. UKEN is certainly much more than just a few (fantastic) weeks in March in evennumbered years!

Whatever you find most interesting, don't think that there is only room for people with long CVs and a lot of experience. We want all curious 1st graders on the same level as the grey-haired ring foxes in the student union - the most important thing is a burning commitment to creating Norway's best cultural festival!

If you join now, I can guarantee that UKEN24 will give you invaluable learning, heaps of new friends across cohorts and faculties, unforgettable moments and a huge amount of joy! It is not without reason that former fUKENsjonærer return year after year to experience the best of what Bergen has to offer!

Still undecided? Send me a message and we'll have a chat!



The PR division is hiring!!

LLife becomes about a billion times more fun when you are part of the PR division.

Do you think the idea of spreading UKEN joy to the whole country, knowing that you can stand behind the reason that UKEN24 sells out every single event seems exciting and make your stomach tingle a little? Then the PR section is for you!

By 2024, we will turn UKEN into a festival that even more people want to attend. Not just people in Bergen, but around big cities, small towns, nearby and furtheraway places. "The country should be painted green" if you like. Through colorful posters, social media, funny stunts, the UKE bus and a number of other creative inventions, it will be impossible not to notice that UKEN 24 is the happening of the year in 2024!

PR is one of UKEN's largest sections and, as of recent years, the division will consist of groups from all schools and faculties in Bergen. If you like to work creatively, and want to help UKEN spread joy and sell all the tickets we have, I really recommend you apply for PR!

You will get to join the PR section and will help shape a large part of UKEN's marketing strategy. In addition, you will lead your own group of like-minded video fans and will together decide which UKEN moments should be immortalized, create really cool promo videos for artists, parties and maybe even music videos?
