As longer days and hotter weather blends with the sweet scent of smoky barbeques across the nation, the resulting cocktail for the senses can mean only one thing – summer is officially here, people!

For many, that also means the arrival of festival season, with the influx of open-air gigs reaching fever pitch throughout July and August. From rock and EDM to jazz and folk music, there’s a festival for all taste buds.

As a result, hundreds of thousands of people across the UK will be dusting off their camping gear, cleaning the dried mud off last year’s crusty wellies and begin preparing themselves for the impending onslaught beer, burgers and beats in the beaming sun.

However, one thing that often gets lost in the festival frenzy of campsite prep is logistics. Admittedly not the most exciting of subjects when compared to global music icons and frosty beverages in sun-kissed air, but an important point nonetheless.

Luckily, we have you covered here at PTT, with our very own festival trolleys – designed to make your campsite journey a walk in the park, not an expedition.

Carte Diem

When you arrive at a festival and hear the distant murmur of the sound stages reverberate across the land, it’s not unusual for the heart to beat a little faster, the hairs to stand up on end and anticipatory excitement to grab you firmly by the proverbial gonadulars.

As such, the very last thing you want to do in this scenario is begin an arduous odyssey, loaded up like a cart horse with several trips on the cards. For anyone that’s been there and done it, it’s a rookie mistake that’s rarely repeated twice.

Fortunately, you can save yourself from a state of sweat-drenched exhaustion by making one simple addition to your festival inventory – the summery saviour that is the folding festival cart.

70kg Multi-Purpose Folding Camping Trolley

Featuring two 360-degree swivel wheels on the front for manoeuvrability, these easy-steer carts can turn your campsite crossing into a smooth sailing stroll from A to B.

Foldable for compact storage on both ends, this humble cart is a veritable gift from the gods, heaven-sent to save you from an afternoon of haulage hell. Complete with four extra-wide, rubber wheels, rough terrain is no match for this musical must-have.

The cart itself features a tough 600d polyester lining that’s fully washable, so you don’t have to worry about it taking an inevitable mud-bath along the way. It also includes two mesh pockets for additional storage.

Measuring 90cm long and 54cm wide with a height of 65cm, the cart is capable of holding up to 70kg in weight. Coincidentally, this translates to around 11 stone – the average weight of a beer keg (just saying).

While we don’t recommend ditching your camping gear in favour of a keg, it’s good to know nonetheless. Meanwhile, it can also be quite a handy option to have, should you have any overindulgent mates who weigh 11 stone or less.

This product also consistently garners rave reviews, regularly receiving five stars from customers in terms of quality and value for money. A much-loved addition to any outdoor set, this simple cart is quite simply essential for any festival-goer with camping on the cards.
