Guide to Campervan Trips to Music Festivals: An Unforgettable Adventure

There’s something uniquely exhilarating about combining the freedom of the open road with the vibrant energy of music festivals. Imagine rolling into a festival in your campervan, ready to immerse yourself in a weekend of music, community, and adventure. This guide will help you make the most of your campervan trip to music festivals, ensuring you have a memorable and hassle-free experience.

Choosing the Right Festival

The first step in planning your campervan trip is selecting the right festival. Whether you’re into rock, electronic, folk, or something else entirely, there’s a festival for everyone. Popular choices include Glastonbury in the UK, Coachella in the US, and Tomorrowland in Belgium. Look for festivals that are known for their campervan-friendly policies, as some events have specific areas set aside for campervans with essential amenities like water, electricity, and waste disposal.

Preparing Your Campervan

Before hitting the road, make sure your campervan is festival-ready. Here are some essential tips:

  1. Check Your Vehicle: Ensure your campervan is in good working order. Check the oil, tires, brakes, and all fluids. It’s wise to have a mechanic give it a once-over before a long trip.
  2. Stock Up on Essentials: Pack enough food, water, and camping supplies to last the duration of the festival. Don’t forget other essentials like toiletries, a first aid kit, and weather-appropriate clothing.
  3. Comfort Items: Bring along items that will make your stay more comfortable, such as camping chairs, portable grills, and cozy bedding.

Navigating the Festival Grounds

Upon arrival, follow the festival’s instructions for campervan parking. Arrive early to secure a good spot and avoid the rush. Once parked, take note of your surroundings so you can easily find your way back to your van after a long day of dancing and exploring.

Making the Most of Your Experience

Living out of a campervan at a music festival offers a unique blend of comfort and convenience. Here are some tips to enhance your experience:

  1. Set Up a Comfortable Base Camp: Create a relaxing space around your van. Set up an awning for shade, lay down a rug, and arrange some comfortable seating.
  2. Meet Your Neighbours: The campervan community at festivals is typically friendly and welcoming. Get to know your neighbours and share tips, stories, and maybe even a meal.
  3. Stay Organized: Keep your living space tidy to avoid the chaos of clutter. Use storage bins to keep items organized and accessible.
  4. Respect the Environment: Festivals promote a leave-no-trace policy. Dispose of waste properly, use eco-friendly products, and respect the natural surroundings.

"VDubline were so so great. I honestly couldn’t recommend this company anymore. They were friendly and professional in all aspects. Made the whole process for renting the vans enjoyable and exciting. We had a fab time and I will most definitely be going back for more adventures from these guys and their amazing vans"

Rosie Egan

"Had another few days with Betsy, on my own this time. She is so easy to drive and to operate that I felt quite happy taking off for my own little adventure. If you are thinking about it, do it. When you hit problems (like how to put the wing mirrors in, where to put the diesel in, how to lock the van from within at night so that the alarm doesn't go off when you move) you just ring Alex for help - or google the How To video and watch it properly"

Jacqui Grant

"From start to finish dealing with Alex at Vdubline was a real pleasure.Prior to pick up we received a video all about the van and how to operate it, which he covered again when we collected the immaculately clean van.Van drove superbly and was surprisingly comfy in spite of sleeping 3 adults.The equipment is maintained to the highest standards and we had no issues over the 3 nights we used the van.Return was just as smooth and efficient and we would definitely recommend Vdubline as excellent value for money.Thanks team."
