Tipis have long established themselves as part of the annual landscape at Glastonbury Festival. There are a limited number of Tipis available to hire for Festival-goers, in the Tipi Village near the Stone Circle and adjacent to the Park area of the Festival, offering spectacular views across the whole site from the hills.
In 2016, the Tipi Village at Glastonbury Festival will once again be offering pre-erected 18ft Tipis on the Southern slopes of the Festival site – leaving you with nothing to carry home but your bags.
Each Tipi can house up to 6 adults. A Tipi for Glastonbury Festival 2016 will cost £975 to hire (Festival tickets not included).
Tipi dwelling is an incredible and elemental experience, but not a luxury one, so whilst the Tipis include a waterproof groundsheet, inner lining and rain catcher, you will need to bring your own bedding, mats, and any other necessary creature comforts.
The Tipi Village has its own facilities including compost toilets and showers, plus there will be hot food and drinks available to purchase, a communal fire, and space around the Tipis to sit, and for children to play.
MAKING A BOOKING
In order to make a Tipi booking you must already have a valid ticket booking for Glastonbury 2016. The price of Tipi hire (£975) is for five nights’ accommodation – Wednesday June 22nd to Monday June 27th, inclusive and does not include Festival tickets.
Tipis will be available to book in the accommodation sale in late October. To make a booking you will be required to enter the registration number you used when booking your Festival ticket.
You may book up to 2 Tipis per booking. Please note UK bookings can only be made using a UK registered debit card (Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Switch/Maestro, Domestic Solo). International bookings can only be made using a Visa Credit or MasterCard Credit Card.
Having made your Tipi booking you will receive a confirmation email to confirm your reservation within 24 hours, and you will receive a follow-up message from the Festival in early June 2016 with further details of your accommodation and access information.
Should you be unable to attend the Festival, or should you wish to cancel your Tipi booking, you may do so up until May 6th (an admin fee of £15 per tipi will be retained), after which time your reservation will be non-refundable.
