We have rented tents, sleeping bags, mattress pads, lighting, and hydration kits to thousands of attendees at music festivals over the many years we've been in business. We can ship gear to your home before you leave, or to any nearby city for pickup at a first night’s hotel, if applicable, or at any UPS pickup point along your route on the way to Lightning in a Bottle. To find a convenient location for UPS pickup, enter any nearby town along your route in the UPS location finder
. We provide a prepaid return label in the box; just save the box in your car, rebox and swap the labels, and drop off at any UPS location after the festival.
One consideration to renting gear from us is we do expect it back! What we send you is all higher quality gear so you don’t want to leave it there for the landfill and have to buy it from us. We understand that sometimes camping gear at festivals never makes it back home, and if that’s a possibility for you, then consider instead buying some of our used gear
upfront; it’s complete and will keep you protected from the elements much better than cheap Walmart tent, but maybe isn’t as pretty as it once was – a perfect, inexpensive candidate for disposal after the festival if you are concerned that might happen.
Most music festivals seem to happen during our busiest season, so you’ll want to reserve your gear as soon as you’re confirmed to go. There’s no downside to ordering early as we don’t charge anything until readying your gear for shipment or pickup at our store. You will want to order your gear at least a week ahead of time to allow for the shipping transit days, but expedited shipping is possible when needed. To get started, browse for whatever gear you may want at the “Rent Online” tab above, or give us a call at 480-348-8917.
We serve festival-goers at the big, well-known venues, as well as festivals that are smaller events maybe just getting started. Some of the most popular events we ship to include:
