Get the festival feeling at home

Festival season is here! And it looks… well, pretty different, to be honest. We won’t be rocking our flower crowns in a muddy field this summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy those festival vibes from home. Here’s our guide to recreating the experience at home.

 

Set the stage

If the weather’s on your side, a bit of outdoor space is the perfect place to stage your festival. Create the flow of a festival by splitting your space into different areas – some sparkly streamers strung from trees, a bubble machine and your best festival playlist blasting out makes for a great Main Stage, while a few comfy bean bags and colourful cushions become the Chill Out Zone. You could even set up a ‘Glitterisation Station’, with face painting, temporary tattoos and – of course – plenty of glitter!

 

Feed the crowd

Food and drink is an important part of the festival experience – keep it on-trend with some street food-inspired bites, like mini burritos, bao buns or tasty tacos. Plus, a benefit of festivalling at home – you can serve the drinks on ice! Fruity cocktail, anyone?

 

Making music

It wouldn’t be a festival without some music, but that Spotify playlist might not cut it. Why not ask around your friends, family and neighbours to find budding musicians who could come play a tune for the waiting crowd? Anything goes – from soulful guitar sounds to a quick shimmy with a tambourine!

 

Queue for the loo? No thank you!

One of the best things about the at-home festival experience is the home comforts – no hour-long queue for the loo, a hot shower in the morning and a comfy bed at night. But if you want to really make it authentic, it has to be a tent in the garden… think fairy lights, fire pits and a sleeping bag to retire to when the night draws in.

Festival fashion – it’s still on

White cotton, cute trainers, floaty dresses – usually all off the cards when you’re spending three days in a muddy field with 50,000 other people… but not when the festival is 30 seconds from your wardrobe! We love these floral sneaks with espadrille details – wear with a broderie anglais top, denim cut-offs and this awesome straw hat to keep the sun at bay. Weather not playing ball? Swap the sneaks for wellies, throw on a raincoat or just pop inside and watch the telly till it passes. We love the at home festival!
