Better festival tents

Hey guys, I am currently looking into redesigning tents for use at music festivals, in particular to encourage people to keep them instead of leaving them behind each year.

This is part of my final year of my Product Design degree and I would love to hear some insight from you guys who have been to a festival before.


https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/W77PLYB


I've made a quick survey, should take under 2 minutes. Also let me know about any bad experiences you have had with your tent at music festivals or if you have been involved in clearing up afterwards?

Thanks, I am grateful for any responses and you will be the first to hear if anything comes of this project.

Have you tried taking them down and putting them up again?

If someone just wanted a tent for one time use, you can't make them buy an expensive one they will never use again. And if someone bought a good tent, they wouldn't be taking it to where there will be a bunch of drunk festival wankers.

Just make one more durable and easy to take down. Most people just can't be bothered taking down their festival tent, especially when if it's been ruined as it's so flimsy.

I take my tent down though. It's just wasteful on so many levels.

You should probably make them fire proof because from my experience festival goers are hell bent on burning every tent in the place in some weird post-drug fuelled ritual at the end of the festival.

No, it's the kind of one where you pay B&Q an extra £50 and they put it up for you(and take away the old one).


Also, insert some jokes about wood and pitching tents here.

That sounds great. Erecting it myself has always been my main issue with these things.
So glad to hear that for an extra 50 they make sure you're completely satisfied and you're not just left with some useless wood.
