When you plan your festival and festival campsite this year here are a few Tarpestry Tips that might be useful! We have received a bunch of pictures from Tarpestry Campsites over the years and have made a few pretty outstanding campsites ourselves. One of them….Bonnaroo 2013 I think….we surrounded three pop up tents with Tarpestrys so it was an L shaped living space with Art Walls that kept the sun and wind and rain out! Oh yeah we had an air conditioner plugged into a generator too….. =o.
Okay here are our tips for your festival campsite:
- Check out the Team Tarpestry FB page and see if there are any other friends of Tarpestry going to the same festival. Might be cool to meet some new awesome people and have a bigger campsite!
- A nice option for using a Tarpestry is to hang it on your pop up tent with bungee hooks when you are at camp to block the sun, wind, rain or other outdoor elements that mother nature wants to throw your way. You can easily unhook it and then take it off to the show!
- Fold your Tarpestry in half if you leave it on the main field. Put your gear just to one side of center with the Tarpestry laid out fully. Fold the half without stuff on it over the stuff. You can even stake down the corners in case the wind picks up. This protects your stuff from the weather and makes sure everything stays dry from the top and bottom of the Tarpestry.
- Have Fun of course and take your time! You’re at a festival!
