Can You Take a Gazebo to a Festival & Which Festivals Allow them?

Are you thinking of buying a shelter but want to know, can you take a pop-up gazebo to a festival?

Glastonbury Festival and Festaff Festivals, as part of the rules for campers, don’t accept gazebos.  So, the answer to the question is it depends on which festival you are going to.

Nevertheless, there are many festivals that allow you to bring in a pop-up gazebo.


Where they are accepted, gazebos are great items you can take to winter festivals, music festivals, arts festivals, film festivals, food festivals, and religious festivals.

It is advisable for festival-goers to read up the rules and regulations of the festival grounds before going ahead with a gazebo, shade canopy, or trailer tent.

Festivals That Do Not Allow Gazebos

Festivals that do not allow gazebos include:

Festivals That Allow Gazebos

(please check with festival guidelines as they may change)

You may also want to consider the colour you buy due to you normally encountering the odd bit of mud…

Note:  The above is not an exhaustive list of festivals that allow or do not allow gazebos in camp.

We advise that you check the terms and conditions or rules and regulations of festivals you’re headed to before packing your items.

Why not take a picnic backpack with you to the festival.  They’re easy to carry, light, and don’t take up much room at all…
