5 Reasons to Hire a Campervan for a Festival

April 02, 2018 in Tips for Travellers and Events and Festivals

You can probably think of a few reasons you should take a motorhome to a Festival, but here are a few more! Now that tickets are being released we can begin to look forward and past the awful weather that has recently been plaguing Europe, and instead look at the upcoming Festival Scene! Come June and July, hundreds of thousands of individuals will be pulling on their wellies and heading out to the fields to listen to their favourite artists. And whilst these festivals usually involve camping on the provided sites, we are here to explain why you should take a new direction this year- the motorhome direction!

Bring more with you to save money at a festival!

Being able to save money at a festival is something of an art. Whilst bringing a motorhome to a festival most commonly leads to a more expensive ticket for the parking spot, we believe that it is an investment in your time there. For the money spent initially will be saved throughout your time there. The majority of motorhomes have their own fridge, which will allow you to do your own cooking with the use of a camping stove! You will no longer be chained to the overpriced food sold or rely solely on pot noodles! We recommend planning carefully which foods you bring to ensure your meals are not too difficult, as you want the majority of your time to be spent enjoying the festival and not slaving over a stove! Finally, as anyone who has carried a crate or two of beers into a festival on foot, the ability to put these in your vehicle will be much appreciated.

Festivals don’t have to include warm cups of foamy beer, as the presence of a fridge can allow you to enjoy your brews the way it was intended! Imagine the wonders of coming back in the early hours of the morning to a dry and comfortable bed, being able to actually sleep away from the hustle and bustle of the campsite. Some motorhomes even come equipped with their own toilet, which would allow you to avoid the long cues and terrible conditions of the public toilet - saving both your thighs from that constant squat and your mind from contemplating what events occurred there. It is all you need to turn a camping festival into a glamping festival!

 Better Security in a motorhome

On to a slightly more serious note, festivals are becoming known for their instances of sexual or physical harassment, and numerous cases of stolen property. By sleeping in your motorhome, which has the advantage of being locked, you avoid any risk of unwanted individuals entering and bothering you or stealing from you. Furthermore, throughout the day you can enjoy the events and shows without fearing the safety of your items back in the camper van!

Just park up your motorhome and enjoy 

The arrival at festivals is always a chaotic event, with individuals everywhere fighting to get the spots closest to the stages, toilets or alcohol stands. Through purchasing a ticket for festival motorhome camping, you are assured your spot and can simply roll up to it and park! Furthermore, given the smaller number of motorhomes present compared to tents, finding your home will not be as difficult! So when you are wandering back from a performance, slightly intoxicated perhaps, you can stumble straight to the correct one and not spend your time lost. This also allows you to avoid any awkward misunderstandings when you crawl into the wrong tent.

Enjoy the extra privacy when you take a motorhome to a festival

Being surrounded by people for the duration of a festival can be very exhausting, both physically and mentally. Even when you are alone in your tent, you’re confronted by noise from all around you. Going to a festival in a motorhome can give you a bit of alone time, or rest time, to recover and continue to enjoy the celebrations to the full degree. If you have gone to the festival with that special someone, you will both appreciate the extra peace and quiet afforded by metal over canvas. So when planning for Glastonbury, Lowlands or any other festival this summer, consider a motorhome or campervan in your festival camping checklist!
