It may seem that festival season is still ages away, but it is never too early to start thinking about all those things that you need to take with you.
One of the most important things has to be your tent, after all, it is going to be your home for the duration of the weekend.
Finding the perfect festival tent is different to buying other varieties of tents. So, what exactly is it that you need to have in your festival tent?
Make sure it is light
The distance from the drop off point or car park to where you are going to pitch your tent can be surprisingly huge. The last thing you will want to have to deal with either before your big weekend, or after you have enjoyed it, is to carry around a heavy and bulky tent with you.
Find yourself a light and easy to carry tent, one that you can walk with easily, and you will be ready to party once you reach your pitch.
Get one that is easy to put up and down
With so much fun waiting for you, you won’t want to spend time having to pitch your tent. So, pick one that is easy enough to put up once you get there. Not only this, but make sure that it is easy to put down too. You are going to be pretty knackered at the end of the weekend, and struggling with a tent is likely to be the last thing that you will want to do!
Pick a tent that you can recognise
There are going to be a huge amount of tents surrounding your one, so making sure that you can spot it in the crowd is key. There are a variety of patterned or brightly coloured tents out there that you can choose from. All of which will make sure that you can see it when you need to.
If you can’t find a pattern one that you like, you could instead tie a balloon to it, or perhaps fly a flag. All ways that you will be able to see it!
Have one with some space to move
Your tent is essentially your home for the weekend. So, you will want to make sure it has enough space in there. You won’t be able to have the same room as you would with a family tent, but you should still be able to fit yourself and your stuff in.
Remember that you will be storing your belongings in there, and with muddy boots and dirty clothes aplenty, you won’t want to have everything on top of each other.
These are just some of the things that you need to look out for when choosing a festival tent. You don’t always have to spend a fortune on a tent, but you should try to buy one that is going to be waterproof and comfy for you during the long weekend!
