Thank you! Over 5000 registered Karnevalists!

What is Uppropet?

It’s when you’ll be able to meet all the sections and and register to become a part of Lundakarnevalen! Since a lot of people want to join, Uppropet also turns out to be a huge, fun, queue!’

One year ago, thirteen people were chosen to become the carnival committee and to create yet another fantastic Lundakarnevalen. Since then we’ve slowly grown with different positions of responsibility, heads of section, heads of communication and many, many more!

Now we want YOU to join our Karnevalistic crew!

Uppropet is on its own “just” a roll-call. But it’s also the start of Lundakarnevalen!

2018

Doing it right!

If you’re thinking of queueing all night long, you need to be prepared! Warm clothing with lots of layers, especially if you’re thinking of sleeping, is a must (we’d recommend sleeping in your own bed at home!). You’ll also need something isolating for the ground, this could be a camping mattress or a camping chair. And don’t forget to bring food, water and other things that’ll make you feel good while queueing! There will be porta-potties on site. A couple of thousand people will be photographed, registered and meet the sections. It takes its time, even when the queue starts moving. In the queue we take care of each other, have fun together and try to hold the disturbances for other people in Lund at a minimum!

2018

Follow the rules

  • No furniture or barbeques in the queue. Camping chairs are fine, but are not allowed inside of the AF-building, due to fire safety. We’ll be able to store your chair while you’re inside.
  • No consuming of alcoholic beverages inside of the AF-building.
  • Don’t pollute, rubbish bins are located around the queue.
  • Party tents are ok, camping tents are not ok - don’t take more than you can carry once everyone gets moving.

2018

Don’t forget!

  • Bring a powerbank with you, so you can charge your phone while queueing! There won’t be charging stations available during the day.
  • Personal ID and Student ID, or something that confirms your membership for the spring semester 2018
  • Food, snacks and warm beverages
  • Really really warm clothes!

2018

Stay updated

The doors open at 12:00 PM, and if everything goes as expected, they close at 6 PM. Lundakarnevalen will be around as of 8 AM and will arrange some activities and also sell snacks. There’ll be lots of people, so our snacks won’t be enough to fill everybody’s tummies. Bring some meals with you!

Vad händer sen?

After you’ve queued, been registered, bought your ticket to Karneveljen and talked to the different sections, you can go home. But don’t forget to rank the sections you’d like to join, before night fall! During the next couple of weeks a couple of thousands Karnevalists will get sorted, mixed and spread out amongst all sections. Then we’ll let you know which section you’ll be a part of! And then spring arrives, welcome to Lundakarnevalen!

FAQ

When will my involvement start?

Well, that can vary a lot! Both within and in between the sections. You can read about all the sections and during which periods they are the busiest in the app Karnevalist 2018, and on the website karnevalist.se

How much time does it require?

Nobody really knows! But there is something for everyone.

Can I become a Karnevalist?

Any student who’s a member of Studentlund (student union/student nation/Academic Society) can become a Karnevalist! So don’t forget to pay your membership fee for this spring! If you aren’t a student, but still want to be a part of Lundakarnevalen you can become a supporting member of the Academic Society.

What does it mean to be a karnevalist?

Being a Karnevalist is both about the actual three days of Lundakarnevalen in May, filled with entertainment and all-day celebrations, as well as meetings, late nights with other Karnevalists, community, pizza, juice, and lots of fun people, which all leads to the 18-20th of May!

Karneveljen, what’s that?

It’s a HUGE party to celebrate the kick-off of Lundakarnevalen! It’s on the 17th of March and I promise you, you don’t wanna miss it!

Do I have to queue for a long time to become a Karnevalist?

Definitely not! Buut there’s a limited amount of tickets to Karneveljen, and to buy one you need to be physically present at Uppropet. First come, first served! Imaginal presence is appreciated, but just not enough to get a ticket.

Do I have to be present at Uppropet to become a Karnevalist?

Yep, you do! You need to be registered during Uppropet. If you aren’t able to come but still want to be a Karnevalist, you’ll have to give a proxy to a friend who’ll be there. A proxy? That's right! You can find more information about it further down on this page.

Why should I attend Uppropet?

To become a karnevalist of course! And to get tickets to Karneveljen - a huge party to celebrate Lundakarnevalen.

If you are unable to attend Uppropet

  1. Download the app or go to karnevalist.se and register
  2. Print a proxy and sign it. You’ll find a link to a proxy template further down.
  3. Find a friend who’ll queue who isn’t already carrying a proxy, only one proxy per person! If you know someone who’s already a part of Lundakarnevalen you can ask them as well.
  4. Give them your proxy document and a copy of your Studentlund membership card + your ID/Passport (a scanned image of your ID is OK).
  5. When you’ve been registered on site it’s important that you open the app and rank the sections. Your choice will be locked in by 12pm the same day (sunday 4 feb)!
  6. During the weeks following the upprop, make your way to the Karneval information desk to take a picture for your Karnevalist-ID.
