Red Sky Luxury Camping at Edinburgh Festivals - Where Glamping Meets Affordability

Red Sky Tent Company Limited (“Red Sky”), one of the UK’s most comfortable luxury camping experts, will be offering a great night’s sleep without breaking the bank at this year’s Edinburgh Festivals, with the launch of Red Sky’s Fringe Pop-Up Hotel.

Available from 9th – 26th August, Red Sky’s Fringe Pop-Up Hotel and luxury camping village, provides cost-effective and classy bell tent accommodation with real beds, showering facilities and a club-house offering breakfast and pack lunches.  Only 2.5 miles (4 km) from the city centre at Meggetland, it is a beautiful 40-minute walk along the canal or a 20-minute bus journey offering convenience and affordability near the action, without the noise or cost of staying right in the city centre.

The Red Sky team are festival tenting experts, turned wedding glamping gurus, and special event and corporate superstars. The company has seen extreme growth year-on-year and have had great success at breaking into new markets, including managing Glastonbury’s glamping facilities for the last eight years.

Brendan Fitzpatrick, Red Sky’s Managing Director said: “As this is our inaugural year at Edinburgh, we thought it would have interest, but we’ve surprised even ourselves at its popularity – and spaces are filling up quickly. In previous years there have been other ventures offering something like ours, but we saw a need for more comfortable and affordable accommodation on a larger scale, providing much sought-after, cost-effective lodgings to fringe visitors, artists and crews, while also maintaining a personable feel. We’ve added real beds and mattresses, warm blankets and loads of character, and created a festival village site so close to the city, you can walk it in 40 minutes.”

As seasoned festival goers, Red Sky’s management knows what people are looking for in festival accommodation. Red Sky’s Fringe Pop-Up Hotel offers luxury bell tents, with customised bed configurations as required (2 dbl/1 dbl, 2 sgl/4 sgl), with up to four people per tent. Guests can stay for one night or for all of August, but the longer the stay, the more the saving per night.

The site also features a Festival Café serving affordable breakfasts and packed lunches and there are charging facilities and power in the on-site clubhouse. Guests of Red Sky’s Fringe Pop-Up Hotel also receive discounted access to Edinburgh Leisure facilities, for those that like a morning swim or can’t keep away from the gym for too long.

Spaces are filling up quickly. For pricing information and to book accommodation at Red Sky’s Fringe Pop-Up Hotel, based at Meggetland, 4 Meggetland Wynd, Edinburgh EH14 1XN, contact Brendan at: brendan@redskytentco.org or on: 01173 182 412.
