Pick up a pop-up
As part of our mission to totally eradicate campsite waste from the festival and make the idea of 'single-use tents' a thing of the past...
We've teamed up with a campsite waste charity Comp-a-Tent to make it super easy for everyone to get fully involved in this mission to protect our environment!
Introducing the brand new ‘pick-up a pop up’ scheme which totally removes the burden of bringing and lugging a tent to and from the site, and is the same price as the cheapest tents on the market, so there is really no excuse not to!
The pick-up point is situated by West Gate so perfect for people coming by public transport and those who want an easy option where they can camp near their friends who've brought their own tents.
All you have to do...
- Order your tent for £45 here!
- Then at the end of the festival - keep it and reuse it again and again OR bring it back and we’ll buy it back off you for £10.00!
- If you choose the buy-back option your tent will then be cleaned and used for others next year – making everything circular, so nothing is wasted and nothing goes to landfill!
