Survived Beautiful Days gang
Such a chilled festival, first of the smaller ones I've done so it came as a very pleasant culture shock!
So the tent review for @funkyfairy...
I got distracted by stuff but I did manage to borrow a chair from the coffee tent for illustrative purposes
I'll not tell you a lie, you'll struggle to sit under there with a chair. I'm 5'11" and I'd say the roof of the canopy was at neck height when I was sat in that chair. But for sitting on the grass for a bit of shade or shelter, it was fine.
Pros: Outside shell goes up first, so if the weather's dodgy you can get a dry spot pretty quick. Also good when taking it down as you can keep the inner dry. Nice and roomy, would do 2 people for 5 days ok. Easy to put up (there's a but in the next bit). Didn't have much wet stuff, but certainly felt it would hold up.
Cons: The porch bit isn't as useful as they'd sell it. Not big enough to stand up inside. Although it's simple to set up, you do need to get the outer sheet square first time, otherwise the lines are off and you'll get contact between the shells. You'll need 2 more pegs than they give you if want to switch easily between porch open and closed.
I do have to take it back as some of the stitching on one of the toggles had started to pop, but I don't know if that was where I over stretched it when it first went up by not having it properly squared off. Whether that's something that'll repeat I don't know, but it does have a year's warranty for faults.
Either way, I'm definitely happy enough with it to get a replacement rather than getting a refund.
