Festival Pop Up Tents

by admin on 2010/08/30

One of the best investments you’ll make at a festival is a pop up tent.  These tents are so easy to put up!  Its literally a case of taking it out of the bag, undoing a few ties, then you throw it and hey presto – its up!  All that is left to do is peg it down which isn’t difficult.

What you’ll enjoy even more is then relaxing outside your tent as you watch your mates struggle to find which pole goes where as they struggle to put up their own tents!

The other great thing about festival pop up tents is that they are very cheap as well.  As you’ll see below, most cost less than £30 from top retailers.  Here are our reviews of the best pop up tents for festivals.
