Quite a lot of campers get their first style of tenting once they go a music competition similar to Glastonbury. Hundreds go to those occasions yearly, taking fundamental tenting gear with them. A number of tenting retailers now produce and promote specialised tenting packs for music festivals which encompass a two-person tent, two sleeping luggage, two tenting mats with a lantern and range chucked in.
You typically have this imaginative and prescient that tenting at a competition means roughing it with out washing. Partly that is true; a staggering truth is that many of people that camp at a music competition really abandon all their tenting gear within the mud when it’s time to go house. That is due I consider within the sudden rush of when it’s over, people simply want to depart as rapidly as potential.
One other massive concern at music festivals is crime, predominantly theft. Many a time I’ve pals inform me that after seeing their favorite act they’ve gone again to their tent and it has both been hijacked by some unscrupulous particular person or the contents have been eliminated of their entirety. What has grow to be highly regarded now could be Day-Glo paint to personalise your tent to make it stand out from the tons of even 1000’s of different tents. There are even tent suppliers within the UK that supply a tent package deal the place you may paint your personal tent, it could appear a novel concept but it surely does have a critical use.
You do should take precautions when tenting at festivals; it might both provide the tenting bug or flip you off for all times. By no means depart something of worth in your tent, if there’s a massive group of you going and also you all have totally different tastes in music then try to prepare a rota. So if half you need to go and see one act the half keep on the tent until they return and vice-versa.
There are different choices than tenting on the competition, you may keep in a neighborhood mattress and breakfast if tenting shouldn’t be your scene, however tenting on the competition is actually the most cost effective approach to keep at one in every of these music occasions and for me it solely provides to the general expertise. Glastonbury and the opposite massive festivals have skilled excessive crime charge inside the final ten years. Resulting from their elevated recognition, police presence has additionally elevated, so I do consider that they’re a safer surroundings now. For instance one in every of my pals takes his younger youngsters to Glastonbury yearly and he swears by it saying that it’s a excellent spot to take your loved ones. A bit totally different from all the horror tales that used to show up within the tabloids about medicine and protracted thefts.
