Festivals

The Arabian Tent Company was born out of a love of festivals, and the very first marquees Katherine designed became popular festival tents as The Bedouin Café tent, The Loose Tea Party and the infamous Rabbit Hole stage, now frequented by Celebrities and Royalty at Glastonbury festival.

Make your festival really special

With our background in outdoor parties and festivals of all kinds and all sizes we understand what is needed to create an area that people will enjoy using and is practical to manage and our structures make ideal VIP tents, green rooms, backstage areas, Press tents, Secret party spaces and promotional areas.

Our outdoor furnishings are also popular, independently of the festival tents, and the lounge seating packages can accommodate over 400 people on sofas, pouffes, coffee tables, side tables, rugs, brass tray tables and chests and gives a snug oriental feel in the backstage Lucky Cat at Camp Bestival and Bestival year after year.

We are known for providing props and furniture to provide to make spaces inspiring and fun for festival goers and you'll see our cocktail tables and parasols dotted outside bar tents at festivals throughout the country, and our daybeds in Ibiza! Our strong links with the festival world means we continue to hire backstage festival tents each year to Secret Garden Party, Shambala, Glastonbury, Brighton Pride and many others.

We love to work with creatives who have a vision for something new and exciting, and are happy to work with you on creating a bespoke marquee design,or provide hire of our trusted festival favourites such as our La Rouge marquee, Purple Palace tent or one of our amazing stretch tents which can be themed and decorated in any way you desire.

Our large range of unique and handmade props, unusual furniture hire and interesting accessories are the perfect finishing touch to any festival tent interior, and can be used to create outdoor areas in front of the marquee to utilise as much of the space as possible and create wonderful chill out areas for VIP guests to relax and unwind in the sun.

As a backstage artists’ area these tents are pretty much perfect as a sumptuous, relaxing area as even the most jaded of performers can’t help but appreciate the riot of colour and fun they create.
