Muddy fields, wellie boots and soggy tents are synonymous with the UK’s music festivals… so why not upgrade your festival experience and hire a campervan? Ditch the canvas and do it in style, with running water, a fridge for your beer, and everything you need to rustle up a bacon butty just when you need it. Freshen up, refuel, and keep your best boho chic festival outfits out of the mud (for now!) in one of our vans.

There’s a festival for everyone, whether it’s a world famous event like Glastonbury, or a smaller family oriented affair. Below are just a sample of some of the South’s finest, easy to get to from our base in Bournemouth.

Our campervans are already booked for some of these festivals – in fact, three of our campers are hired out for Camp Bestival this year! Wake up in the heart of the festival, soak up the atmosphere, connect with the music and the crowd, and dance like nobody is watching – all whilst content in the knowledge that your valuables are secure and there is a warm, dry bed to go back to afterwards!
