Festival Season

We’ve had a glorious few weeks of weather, the sun has been shining and your mind has probably started turning to festival season. With no Glastonbury to book for this year, tickets for plenty of other festivals have been selling fast so there’s no time like the present to think about where you want to head this year. Here’s a quick guide to securing the best spot at the festival.

Booking Early

You can’t book early enough these days and make sure when you are booking a ticket you pay for the appropriate campervan or motorhome spot. Usually you’ll be out in a separate field to those under canvas with marked out spaces so if you don’t book up you’ll be disappointed. Don’t be surprised to pay extra for bigger vehicles, too – space is at a premium on these campsites.

Water, Fuel and Batteries

One of the most important things to remember is to stock up on a good water supply, a nice bit of fuel and possibly even bring some spare batteries. Some festivals are better organised than other but don’t expect there to be a great supply of utilities. You won’t necessarily be running the engine too often, either, so keep your appliances charged and electricity use to a minimum.

Getting There

Expect plenty of traffic for the major festivals and, even if you live relatively locally, don’t assume it’ll be an easy trip. It’s good to travel early in the day and get there in good time to secure the best spot and to minimise your journey time. If you’re coming from a lot further away you might want to think about breaking up the journey – you’re on holiday, why not!?

The final thing to check is ensure your motorhome insurance policy covers you for travelling to festivals – some providers might write exclusions in to their policy. You’re a lot more exposed to theft and damages at festivals so take care and wherever you choose to go, look forward to it!
