Sure, you could go to Kmart and get a shitty little piece of material to last you through the festival season. But your cheap tent will most likely end up being held upright with ropes tied to car bumpers and other tents. And when you're trying to lure sexy festival-goers you met at the vegan burger shack back to your camp-ground abode, it's important to have a place to take them which doesn't kill the vibe. What you need to rule the campground this summer kids, is this. The most majestic of all festival accessories from the masters of glamping themselves, Lotus Belle. Inspired by the motto "tents for life, not the landfill", these babies are so luxurious you'll need bouncers at the tent door. The pick of the bunch is the Outback, a tent that's probably bigger than your own bedroom, maybe even your whole house. These things are sturdy and built to survive the extremes, so much so that if Genghis were alive, he'd not doubt be conquering the world from with a few of these in tow. First-class camping comes at a price, and that price is around $1950 for the Outback. But the cute little sister, a 2-manner called the Lotus Pearl, has hit the shelves just in time for festival season and is all yours for $450.
