How do I choose a festival tent?
You don't want to spend too long setting up your tent when you're at a festival. You only need a couple of seconds to set up a pop-up tent. If you like a little more space in your tent, opt for a dome tent. These tents have a simple construction, so they're easy to set up. On top of that, they're higher than the average pop-up tent, and often they also have a front entrance where you can store your things.
Number of people
Are there just two of you, or are you part of a large group of friends? Decide whether you choose a small tent or combine forces and purchase a large group tent. You'll have more privacy when sleeping in a smaller tent, but it's much more fun to sleep in a large tipi tent with your friends. Make sure you have enough space to store all of your luggage. It's a good idea to choose a tent that can accommodate more people than you travel with.
A more affordable festival tent is often made of lower-quality materials. This makes these tents less resistant to storm weather and extreme rain showers. Does the weather forecast predict extreme weather during your festival? Invest in a tent that's waterproof. You should opt for a tent with a hydrostatic head of at least 3,000 millimeters. This should be enough to withstand extreme rain showers.
