Festival pop up tents

Have you bought a pop up festival tent? Is the first time you've used one? Well every year I see people struggle to repack the tent, the instant set up was lovely but wrestling the springy nylon monster back into its bag defeats many an exhausted hungover festival goer. I've seen people give up and shove the whole thing into the car 'as is'. I've seen people just walk away and leave it. I've seen people break them.

So before you go

Have a watch



Have a practice.
Because no one wants to be this guy



Other things to remember about pop up tents, a single skin is colder at night than a double skin, and hotter in the sun. You cannot stand in a small pop up, they are really designed just for sleeping. They are great for a single traveller or a friendly couple, not so great for a family.
