Love the idea of camping at the Woodford Folk Festival but don’t have your own tent, let alone the other necessary gear for a comfortable stay?
Tent City can provide you with your home away from home at Woodfordia for up to 8 nights between Christmas and the New Year.
Since 1995, almost as long as the Woodford Folk Festival has been at the Woodfordia site, Shawn and his team have been putting up tents on site for hire by festival patrons.
For the 2016 festival, they put up an incredible 1010 tents!
These heavy-duty canvas dwellings are for single, twin or triple share and have a fully carpeted interior as well as a 12 volt light (which let’s face it, can often be one of those vital things you forget to pack when camping).
You can bring along as much or as little of your own stuff with you as you like; linen packs including pillows are available for hire, as is furniture like tables and folding chairs.
Tent City beds have spring-based frames with a mattress on the top and are knee high off the ground. If you’re a Season Camper staying for 5 or more nights you have the option of a double bed if the tent is a twin share. Score!
Fly screens will protect you from any summer insects while still allowing for a breeze and there’s even an awning out the front if you like to take off your shoes before going in.
Tent City is located just 500 metres from the entry to the festival and is so much more than simply a row of tents.
There is a main communal area under a large marquee in Tent City where you’ll find self-catering facilities including a barbecque, microwave, three cold rooms, sinks with running water, phone chargers, a seating area and complimentary tea and coffee.
Each morning there is also roast coffee available at an additional charge.
And did we mention the hot showers in Tent City? There are around 25 of them.
Check in is from 10am every day and check out is at 9am. There’s always someone contactable 24 hours a day.
If you’d like to stay at Tent City for some or all of the 6 days of the Woodford Folk Festival as well as the nights just before the festival opens (December 25 and 26), simply purchase festival tickets that include camping, a vehicle pass and ‘Tent City Hire’ for accommodation. All links are provided below.
Upon arrival, simply exchange your ticket for a wristband before heading to Tent City. If you have a vehicle you can drive to the reception area where staff will assist you with parking. Then it’s just a matter of being shown to your tent, move in and head in to the festival!
