Hammock Friendly Festivals
Festivals can be frenetic, exciting and somewhat tiring events. Why not ease your festival going experience by taking a hammock along? Many festival sites are surrounded by trees and some have designated hammock areas. Here are out top four music festivals for hammock lovers.
Latitude doesn't have an official policy on hammocks but festival goers are more than welcome to bring their own hammocks and portable hammock stands. If you can't manage this, there is a very cool hammock area with hammocks provided tucked away in the woods between the Alcove and Lavish Lounge (see signpost!). Be quick though, as these hammocks are very popular.
WOMAD has a hammock stall, with hammocks for chilling. There are trees on the festival site so depending on whether or not you get the good spots first you can hang your own hammock up for a mid afternoon snooze. You’re best bet is get there early! WOMAD (World of Music, Arts and Dance) brings together many forms of music, arts and dance from countries and cultures around the world. Said to be the home of the ‘best music you never heard’.
Wilderness is a “celebration of the arts and outdoors in the wilds of England”. It is set in Cornbury Park which is an 800-year old deer park surrounded by 1,700 acres of forest, so there is no shortage of beautiful spots to hang your hammock. Besides watching great acts you can also enjoy great food. There is also a spa, wild swimming, foraging and hot tubs
Electric Forest is a both a collaboration and an experiment in community. There are many ways to be involved in The Forest, from work to play, and everywhere in between. And there are lots of great places to hang a hammock. In fact, hammocks are so popular that the organisers have issued a hammock ettiquette guide to prevent hammock mayhem. Well worth a trip to Michigan.
