A Guide to Throwing Your Own Mini Festival

With festival season well and truly here, it’s time to dig out your wellies and stock up on face paint and glitter. However, not all of us can afford to buy tickets to our favourite festivals, particularly with the prices constantly rising and the cost of attending a festival nearing the price of a holiday. If you are unable to attend a festival this year, but still want to join in on the fun, why not throw your own mini festival instead? Below we share our top tips on throwing your own little festival.

Decide on a location

First and foremost, you need to decide on a location. If you have enough garden space, hosting a mini festival in your own garden is a fantastic idea and a great way to save on money. If you don’t have enough room in your garden, get in touch with local campsites or field owners to see if they would be interested.

Set up a main tent

While your guests should all bring their own individual tents to camp in, it is always a good idea to invest in one main tent that everyone can spend time in when the temperature drops or the weather turns bad. Consider kitting out a bell tent with pillows, throws, rugs and drapes so that your guests have somewhere to chill out. Alternatively, consider hiring a marquee and setting up some music underneath.

Light up the space

One of the most important parts of a festival is the atmosphere, and one way to create a great atmosphere when the sun goes down is through lighting. Fairy lights are a cheap and easy way to decorate an outdoor space, however, consider adding lanterns, fluorescent fixtures, LED lighting and tea lights hung in jars too. This will transform your outdoor space in no time.

Get some music going

For your mini festival, it is absolutely essential that you have a good pair of speakers to hand. Consider setting up a few different areas dedicated to different genres of music or, if you are short on space, simply set up one big area where guests can dance and enjoy the music. Just make sure that you’ve got a never-ending list of songs to play!

Hire some portable loos

If you are hosting a festival at your own house, you are likely not going to want people trampling in and out to use your bathroom. To make things easier and to stop your property from ending up covered in mud, why not hire some portable loos for your event?

At Manchester Cabins, we provide toilet hire services to suit a range of situations, designed to increase the efficiency, functionality and comfort of any location. For more information, visit our website today.
