Festival-goers looking to make up for lost time and visit a much-missed music festival can do so in the comfort of their own private space by booking a campervan with Yescapa. A campervan festival stay means friends and family can enjoy a relaxed, fun-filled weekend of music and entertainment, knowing that they can cook, sleep and even shower in their home away from home.
Yescapa, the leading peer-to-peer campervan and motorhome rental platform, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2022, offers some comfortable and stylish vans so that, even if the British summer weather takes a turn for the worse, festival lovers can have an altogether more luxurious (and dry!) experience.
So let loose, don the hunter wellies and an outrageous ensemble (take inspiration from Harry Styles’ sequinned Gucci tracksuit at this year’s Coachella…), and spread a bit of festival sparkle. Explore some fabulous UK summer festivals along with these suggestions for the perfect Yescapa campervan:
