Summer is approaching, which can only mean one thing – festival season is almost upon us. Essential for providing often much-needed shelter and a place to carry all your wares, there’s no better time to get your festival gazebo prepared than right now – that goes for both revellers and stallholders!
However, when choosing the best festival gazebo for you, there are a number of considerations you’ll need to make. These include accounting for the weather and whether you’ll be using it for leisure or work.
This helpful guide by Sun Leisure will show you how to find the best festival gazebo for you.
Choosing a waterproof festival gazebo
If there’s one thing the British weather is known for, it’s for its unpredictability – even in the middle of the summer. Regardless of whether you’re attending the event as a guest or as a stallholder, you can expect to have your pop-up festival tent up for somewhere between two and five days, so the risk of rain is not to be underestimated. This is why you’ll need to choose a festival gazebo that’s completely waterproof.
By ensuring your pop-up festival tent is waterproof, you can keep dry for the entire time it rains during the festival, so you don’t have to worry about ruining any of your belongings, goods or equipment. Additionally, you’ll be able to rest assured that you’ve always got shelter if the weather turns, so all you need to do is focus on enjoying the music!
Ideal for festivals, all Sun Leisure gazebos are completely waterproof. Each festival gazebo kit contains a canopy and a set of sidewalls that have been coated in a watertight PVC layer guaranteed to keep out moisture. If you’re looking for an extra layer of protection to keep water out and extend the overall longevity of your festival gazebo tent, you should consider looking into flooring and guttering to ensure your shelter is constantly drained of excess moisture.
Finding a festival gazebo to advertise your brand
If you’re attending a festival as a catering stallholder, as opposed to a reveller, you’ll want to make the very most of the marketing potential you’ll have over the course of the weekends. With hundreds, if not thousands of visitors walking past your pop-up festival tent each day, you can expect the amount of exposure your business receives to increase dramatically.
This, of course, means maximising your image to attract as many visitors as possible by using a festival printed gazebo that takes advantage of Sun Leisure’s in-house printing and design services. Available on all of our pop-up gazebos, custom catering stalls, flags and banners and inflatable structures, you can choose between single colour text and screen-printing and all-surface full-flood digital print to create a promotional gazebo your brand can be proud of.
Choosing a sturdy festival gazebo
As we previously mentioned, factoring in the weather when you choose the best festival gazebo for you is essential. This isn’t just the case for rain, however – you’ll also need to plan ahead in case of strong winds. This is where a heavy duty festival gazebo would be extremely useful.
An excellent example of a heavy duty festival gazebo tent you’ll be able to use again and again is the PROTEX®40 Gazebo 1.5mx1.5m. With one of the best strength to weight ratios on the market, this gazebo is lightweight enough to transport wherever you need it whilst remaining extremely sturdy and versatile.
If you’re looking for an extra layer of security for peace of mind when facing adverse weather conditions, you should consider adding gazebo weights to your festival kit. These help keep your pop-up festival tent anchored safely to the ground – minimising any risk of it flying away!
The quickest festival gazebos to put up
If you’re attending a festival instead of selling at one, you won’t necessarily be looking for a sturdy, versatile structure you’ll want to use again and again in the long-term. You’ll be looking for a pop-up festival gazebo you can put up as quickly as possible on day one and take down with ease when you’re feeling worse for wear on the final day.
This is where a pop-up festival gazebo from Sun Leisure is going to come in handy. For a festival tent you and your friends can sit under every evening, a structure from the COMPACT range, such as the 3m*3m PRO 30 COMPACT Instant Shelter, will be ideal. Quickly folded down to just 102cm and with a free wheeled store bag included, your structure will be effective and easy to transport from place to place with minimal hassle.
