For those elite travelers who want to enjoy music festivals without the mud, we showcase the very best VIP experiences at Coachella, Burning Man, Glastonbury and other five star festivals.
Perhaps the most Instagram friendly festival in the world, Coachella is a haven for the jet set elite looking for live music and an achingly trendy festive vibe.
For affluent revellers who don’t want to pitch a tent and get muddy, the festival boasts beautiful accommodations that don’t take you away from the fun but provide a peaceful retreat.
Luxury Mughal tents boast snow white beds, wood burners, air conditioning, and an onsite concierge with golf cart to transport you from stage to stage.
The biggest and most bizarre festival in the world, every year thousands of revellers descend upon the Nevada desert for a few days of fires, eclectic entertainment, amazing art installations, and a truly wild human experience. The celebrity camp is the place to stay for those who need a sweet and cool sanctuary.
Massive yurt like tents are turned into five star hotels with fountains and palms and chandeliers. Whole pigs and lobsters are cooked by celebrity chefs and served at black tie dinner events, and inside the porta potties – the toilets are made of solid silver.
Britain’s biggest festival is a highlight of the year but the rain soaked island is renowned for being a wash out when it comes to the weather. Instead of being knee deep in mud you can pay to stay at the pop up hotel.
The tent-house suite boasts three beautiful bedrooms and even a dressing room so you have all the space you need. Lavish queen beds, hot showers, and a swimming pool come as standard for this VIP package deal.
You can also book in at the pop up spa for swish beauty treatments, massages and perfect pampering.
About as far from camping as you can get, the Oasis Festival takes place in a bespoke boutique hotel sitting pretty beneath the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Laid back music and vibes takes centre stage and lavish days are spent relaxing beside the pool, indulging in yoga, and sipping something sparkling at the Champagne Bar.
With Marrakech only a few miles away, you can dabble in the very best of both worlds.
You may have missed the boat this year, but be sure to bag a ticket for Iceland’s coolest music festival next year. As the midnight sun stays hanging in the sky until the small hours, you can revel in complete style by watching music performances inside glaciers, volcanoes, and hot springs.
Make the most of the stunning mystical landscape and stay in the presidential tent for gorgeous glamping.
