How to inject a bit of luxury into your festival experience
Share This Article:
After camping at Latitude, in some of the heaviest thunderstorms known to man, I admit I wasn’t relishing the prospect of sleeping under canvas again at Reading Festival last month. Which is what led me to investigate how different the festival experience would be, if going down the ‘glamping’ route. So, along with five friends, I booked a Podpad – erected on site before your arrival. With no need to carry a heavy tent miles from the car and battle to put it up, that’s a fistful of Brownie points alone! But there’s more. The Octopad (which sleeps up to 6) is not only spacious with solid walls and a carpeted floor, it comes complete with beds and mattresses (no damp, hard, bumpy floor for us) along with lighting and electricity to enable you to charge your phones or any other devices. But the key feature for me was that the Octopad is lockable and is situated in Podpads’ 24-hour security-monitored designated area (accessed only by wristband) meaning all of our belongings were safe. Podpads also provide private toilets and showers and trust me, if you’ve camped at a festival before you’d pay a lot of money for that alone!
