The COVID19 pandemic ruined many industries. However, not many industries were as “ruined” as the live events industry. The first thing governments worldwide did during the onset of the COVID19 pandemic was ban large public gatherings. Thankfully, for marketers, promoters, ticketing companies, and event lovers – that nightmare is over.

In a 2021 survey involving concert managers and fans, 95% said they’re planning large-scale returns to live events. Concert season 2022 is here. If you love live events, shows, or concerts – you’re in for a treat. Live events and music festivals in the post-pandemic world will have unique energies.

Making the Return to Concerts Safe

Crowds are overjoyed to be back. But, joy shouldn’t translate into unpreparedness. All concertgoers must prioritize their health/safety first. That means masking up, getting necessary vaccinations, and observing all the guidelines event managers prescribe. Concert goers and festival attendees must take some personal safety precautions as well. So, make sure the tents feel comfortable once they’re erect and sealed. Air circulation is the main quality that determines whether a tent feels comfortable or not. Bear in mind – tents with small or no air vents feel hot and stuffy within minutes.

Expect long queues, scattered crowds, and rain at almost any concert or festival you attend this year. You can prepare for such risks by carrying pop up tents to these events. Pop-up or “instant” tents are extremely easy to set up and pack away. With these tents, concert-goers can spend more time enjoying themselves and less time setting up shelters for themselves.

Here are the key features concert-goers should look for when buying “instant” pop-up tents –

Pitching and Collapsing

Why are you taking a pop-up tent to the music festival and not a traditional “set it up yourself” tent? That’s because you want convenience. So, double-check the pitching and collapsing features of your tents. Look for features like – light, foldable aluminum frames or 120-second loading times. In a 2021 survey involving concert managers and fans, 95% said they’re planning large-scale returns to live events. Concert season 2022 is here.

Comfortable Shelter

If you’re taking pop-up tents to a three-day music festival, you’ll be spending some time inside them. So, make sure the tents feel comfortable once they’re erect and sealed. Air circulation is the main quality that determines whether a tent feels comfortable or not. Bear in mind – tents with small or no air vents feel hot and stuffy within minutes.

So, look for tents with multiple, decently-sized air vents. Also, the tents’ doors must open easily, even in wet weather. When it starts pouring, most campers or concert-goers rush inside their tents. The “rushing in” part is only possible if the tents have large, easy-to-open doors. Make sure your pop-up tents DON’T have –

  • Weak door zips that fall apart if they’re opened/closed multiple times.
  • Frowning air vents that don’t stay open to circulate air inside the tent for long periods.
  • Zips or seams that catch the tent’s canvas and rip.

Rain Resistance

This is a big one. All tents are great. Even traditional tents are comfy and relatively easy to set up. However, if a tent starts to crumble when the rain hits – it’s basically useless. So, always buy tents that come with special rain-resistant coatings. These coatings protect the tents’ internal fabrics when the thundery downpours begin. That means masking up, getting necessary vaccinations, and observing all the guidelines event managers prescribe. Concert goers and festival attendees must take some personal safety precautions as well.

 

Lastly, make sure your pop-up tents can fit your whole friend group. A small instant pop-up tent can fit two to three people. So, if your concert-loving friend group is bigger than that, carry multiple tents.
