FESTIVAL CAMPING - THE SHOP GUIDE. (2024)

Want the comfort and cool of upgrading from the festival’s “boutique camping” ticket without the hefty price tag? With the growing popularity of glamping, most festivals now collaborate with third party outdoor companies to offer ticket holders VIP camping experiences, where for an additional fee (between £200 and £1,000 per person per duration of the festival), you can book a fully furnished campsite. Pre-assembled tent, wagon, yurt or van.

The benefits offered by this upgrade are the comfort of home and freedom from work. However, for the price you pay for it, you could buy the exact configuration 4 times and never have to get rid of your beloved bell tent.

In this blog we will inspire and guide you on how to create your own DIY and VIP experience at your next camping festival; “equipment”, “advice” and “not to forget”.

1. DECIDE ON YOUR DESIGN

At Boutique Camping®, design and credible craftsmanship are what make us the UK's leading tent supplier. Each design features a unique set of innovative structural features created to complement any occasion and the camper's individual expectations. Generally, important festival factors may prioritize free space, set-up time or 360° screen walls, but if you are unsure, why not use ourtent selectorto help you. we find your ideal location!

The classic Bell tent is the easiest to pitch, but if you're a seasonal camper and don't mind the work of pitching, a standout design like our Star Emperor will provide more ground-to-head space and of course, that extra wow factor.

2. DISCOVER THE SKIN YOU CAMP IN

All Boutique Camping tents are waterproof (or treated with a waterproofing agent), but that's not the only important factor when choosing your festival-friendly fabric. Weight is also an important factor, cotton or polycotton tents can be heavy, so if you expect a long walk from the car to the field, the lighter the better. Low to no maintenance and easy cleaning are the preferences of most festival goers. Oxford fabric is therefore an excellent choice. It's also lighter and comes in vibrant tones, perfect for adding and amplifying the festival fun.

IN LATE FASHION? WE SAY NO MORE FALSE STEPS.

As the saying goes, he who gets up early catches the worm, and this applies more than ever to camping festivals! Not only will an impatient arrival place you in first position, thus avoiding tedious queues made worse by the weight of your belongings, but you will have the freedom and advantage of planting in the best place... close to the bar, toilets , outside or perfectly placed in the center of the stage, the land is yours!

WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER.

There's a reason we think an octopus would make a great festival companion... with only two arms, we humans often start and end festivals a little choppy or find ourselves having to make multiple trips from car to plot in order to transport all our equipment and personal effects to our new temporary residence. This is where having a cart or trolley will come into play and help save that energy for when it really counts...the dance floor!

Tip: Once everything is installed, use the frame of your cart to hang a trash bag and keep your trash in one place. Trust us, a messy campsite is never fun!

Honey, I lost the tent.
