Definitely a summer tent if it's single skin! And I reckon it'd be worth getting one per person than actually sleeping two in it. Still voted hot for this price.

£4.95 delivery... still a good price though @ £24.94!

i'll be taking to leeds fest

thanks, heat added

Good luck in this if you take it to Glasto and it rains like last year!!

Personally ANY tent you take to a festival needs some kind of porch on it. It's a Godsend to leave your muddy boots/clothes in and at least keep your main sleeping area free from ****.

Personally i wouldn't touch cheap rubbish tents like this.
Its a single skin so you will get showered with condensation in the night. There is no porch, so if it rains water will come flooding in as soon as you unzip the main compartment. The Hydrostatic Rating is not even listed, so its probably so low that it will leak in anything more than light rain.
The sleeping bags do not list a GSM rating, so they will only be any good in the hottest of nights.

You can get a decent DOUBLE SKIN tent, with a porch, that will have a HH rating of at least 2,000, for around £25 if you shop around.
A sleeping bag should have at least a 300 GSM rating....Or you will freeze your nads off even in summer. These can be bought for around £15.

And here was me thinking alcohol was the only festival requirement for keeping warm!!
Bargain throwaway price for camping kit, just fingers crossed we don't have inclemency....

Companies are notorious for bundling this cheap camping gear, so it looks like you are getting a lot for your dosh.... All you are getting is a lot of cheap rubbish.
These single skin tents regularly sell in supermarkets for £5.99, they are only any good for kids to play in the back garden with.

If you must buy a cheap tent, then at least buy on with a decent spec....
This tent is a double skin, it has a 2,000 Hydrostatic Head Rating, so it will stand up to heavy rain. And it has a porch area.

Now that is a lot better... And Gelert is a well known top make. It has good spec and it will be quality constructed.

Okay, thanks alot for your help

Cor dear, I saw Tattoo festival and figured it was something to do with the Windsor chapter's summer booze up.

Loads of cheap tents on Amazon.

Alcohol doesn't actually keep you warm, it lowers your body temperature. So the thing with the St Bernard would do you no good whatsoever. :whistling:

Jeff (or anyone else), I'm after a pop-up tent because im useless at constructing them for creamfields later in the year, hows this one: gooutdoors.co.uk/ten…797 dont think i need it to be a two person, but if i do you got any better recommendations?

LMAO. Camping is meant to be ****. It's not supposed to be like a hotel.

Go for the latter(£44.99).....it's not single skin,so will be much better if the weather is rubbish!

Most tents are quite straightforward to erect(and I'm a girl!).Buy a tent in good time and practice putting it up before the main event.........you'll be fine.:thumbsup:

No! I'm lazy :-D Thanks for the input, think I'll be going for that latter one indeed, don't see why not to get a pop-up one really, inexpensive, good quality, very easy for putting up and taking down, doddle

As a 30-something who has been to enough festivals and tried all manner of tents I'd say if you're 20s+ or are going to a festival for the music and atmosphere then spend a little more - even though you won't be spending that much time in your tent, the time you do spend in it will be much more comfortable and like a few guys have said it doesn't cost much more for something a lot better. And it'll last you a few years, maybe more.

Oh and get an air-matress - that £10 cushion of insulating air between you and the cold hard ground is heaven compared to a roll-up sheet of spongey stuff

If you're a typical teenager (note: not all) or you want to drink yourself silly, mess (human mess) all over the portaloos and set fire to things then go for the cheapest tent you can get and please keep away from me :-D

Yes i agree with Muckypup... Go for the second one as its a double skin. Sleeping in a single skin can be a miserable experience. You will get showered with condensation all night, and everything will get damp.
There is a knack to packing these tents away again, and takes a bit of practice.... There is loads of vids on YouTube that demonstates them...

Camping is only **** if you use cheap rubbish gear.
Use a quality tent, a good spec sleeping bag, and a decent self inflating mat, and you will sleep as well and be as comfortable as at home in your bed.

Well tbh i'd rather it be like a hotel - any normal one day camping in the middle of a proper site with facilities i guess you'd be okay with the basic throw up ones...

but for some of the festivals (leeds - 4 nights) i'm guessing that it wont take too long for the tent to get trashed.
