Music festivals are a staple of the summer in the UK and many parts of Europe. They attract millions of people every year to see the best acts from all across the musical world. The largest ones are spread out over several days and people camp overnight for the duration to get the full experience. Camping may not be for everybody, but there is a better option if you want to stay but not be subjected to a tent, bad toilets and lack of showers; hiring a motorhome.
The majority of the large festivals in the UK and Europe allow motorhomes and provide facilities for them. In some cases you’ll need to book a special pass but you should be able to get all of the amenities you need for your stay. Just think how much more comfortable you will be with a solid roof over your head and a proper bed rather than a tent. You can choose a vehicle with its own bathroom and kitchen if you want all the comforts of home.
If you do choose to take a motorhome there are several things you need to remember. The first of these is to make sure you can identify your vehicle because it’s likely there may be more than one of the same model or similar ones in the camp. The last thing you want to do is to have to wander around trying to find which one is yours, especially when it gets dark.
The next thing is possibly the most important; the keys. You’ll need to take these with you and keep them safe unless the festival provides locker facilities. If you carry them the whole time you should make sure they are secure and won’t get lost. You should also take care to avoid locking them in the vehicle when you leave.
During your stay you’ll need to be careful with your rubbish and dispose of it in the most appropriate manner. It is never a good idea to just dump rubbish outside the vehicle because it will quickly become unhygienic and attract unwanted insects and wildlife.
Most festival sites will have water supplies, electrical points and facilities for emptying the toilet cassette and grey water tank. Some may also provide gas bottles if needed but you should always check supplies before you go.
You can choose motorhome hire for as long as you want and many companies will offer special short term rentals so you can take them to festivals. Whether you’re going to an event in the UK or are travelling further afield you can find the perfect service for you on our website.
