With the biggest UK music events on hold this summer, you might have never felt further away from the 'festival feeling'. However, you don’t have to miss out - turn up Spotify and bring Glasto vibes into your abode with just a few key items.

We spoke to Wayfair's resident style advisor Nadia McCowan Hill for her top tips to make your home this summer's top festival destination.

Pop-up teepee

Opt for a pop-up teepee as the hub of your festival at home, a stylish statement piece which will also offer shade for an unforgiving British summer! Teepees are ever popular, with customer searches at Wayfair up 20% this past month alone. 

Think about comfort

Spread out bold patterned outdoor rugs underneath your seating area, with layers of bright cushions and woven pouffes for ultimate comfort. Floor rugs and cushions will also make your garden feel less formal and have more of a party vibe. 

Festival lighting

Lighting is important for creating a cosy and intimate setting for your festival garden. Lanterns are a stunning option, which can be dotted around your outdoor space for a cohesive feel. Festoon-style fairy lights are also a staple, which look great hung on a fence, teepee or used to zone off a seating area.

Time to gather

Gathering around a fire pit isn't just a Love Island ritual, it's perfect for a festival garden party, too! Once the sun goes down, a fire pit is a great outdoor accessory which can be used not only to keep you and your guests warm, but it can be used to toast marshmallows on, which the whole family will love. 

Don't forget the bar!

No festival-inspired space is complete without a bar for friends and family to enjoy. Take a look at this build-your-own bar that Wickes has just launched, which comes with all of the timber you need to create a fully-formed bar. Decorate with colourful garden accessories, fairylights and you could even make a personalised festival sign.
