Festival season should be in full swing right now. But unfortunately the likes of Glasto, Parklife and Bestival have been cancelled this year so your calendar might be looking empty.
Why not take matters into your own hands?
Fill the Glasto shaped hole in your life with a mini at-home festival. Transform your outdoor space into a garden party paradise and set up a main ‘stage’ worthy of your dream music lineup. Make sure you stand out from the (small) crowd with fierce festival fashion and don’t forget the drinks and decorations.
With the help of our retailers, you’re sure to make it a day/night to remember (and you can earn up to 10% rewards!).
Set the festival scene by decorating your space.
Improvise your own music tent with a pop-up gazebo from Wilko which can double up as a rain shelter. Create an ambient atmosphere with fairy lights and hanging lanterns and add a chill-out section with floor cushions and chairs for when you need a breather. Then inject some character with personalised bunting from Firebox.
And if you want the full festival experience, why not camp outside with a tent and sleeping bag from Halfords?
Earn up to 5% rewards.
A festival isn’t a festival without music, right? Make sure you’ve prepared a playlist with tunes you can boogie all night too. Or if you’re lucky enough to have a DJ friend, set up a sound system with help from Argos.
Another surefire way to keep everyone entertained is with outdoor games. Firebox has a great selection with everything from classic beer pong to a giant unicorn sprinkler. Or you can splash out on a slightly more traditional paddling pool or frisbee from Wilko.
Earn up to 4.5% rewards.
Festival Food and Drink
No festival is complete without a refreshing selection of drinks. Stay hydrated with a range of crisp white wines and rosés, ice-cold beer and fruity gins from Laithwaite’s. Or why not go all out and create your own cocktails with a shaker set from Argos.
Then keep your guests satisfied with a platter of Papa John’s pizza and sides at the end of the night.
Earn up to 10% rewards.
Choose your festival persona and dress accordingly.
Go boho with tassels and your favourite band tee or go bold with bright tie-dye tees and printed shirts. Embrace your inner rockstar with a faux leather jacket and distressed denim shorts or dance the day away in floaty dresses to keep the festival vibes alive.
Complete your look with retro sunnies, a bucket hat and the all-important bum bag.
Festival Hair and Beauty
Hosting an at-home festival is the perfect excuse to experiment with your look and get away with wearing glitter everywhere. Plus, the luxury of having your own bathroom (no portaloos or washing with wet wipes!) means you can focus on fine tuning your festival hair and makeup.
Make a statement on your face with a pick ‘n’ mix of glitter and gems from Boots. Or get creative with a neon bright eyeliner to make your eyes pop. Then jazz it up with space buns or braids to get the party started. And if you’re feeling brave, take your hair to new heights with a hint of pink hair tint from Feelunique.
And most importantly, don't forget the SPF!
