Funky outdoor furniture hire for the forthcoming summer festival season

May 11, 2019

The UK summer music festival season is fast approaching! Here at Rio Lounge we are proud to provide outdoor chill-out hire furniture for backstage and VIP areas at a number of major festivals each year.  

From hippie to happening….

The UK music festival scene is something of a phenomenon.  From humble hippie beginnings in the late 1960s and early 70s, it’s now estimated that around 4 million people in the UK will be packing their camping gear and wellies and heading for at least one festival this summer. Whether you favour the big-name long-running pop and rock festivals such as Glastonbury or Reading, or something a little more ‘boutique’ and specialised, there’s no doubt that festivals have become hugely popular in recent years.

Let us help you create the ultimate chill-out zone

Our rattan ‘Marrakesh’ outdoor sofa sets are the ideal choice when styling a chill-out area or VIP lounge, .  These 5-piece modular sofa sets are made from tough hardwearing synthetic rattan and therefore are suitable for use in all weathers.  Available in either white or black, they are the go-to furniture hire for a stylish lounge or backstage area.  We also include a matching rattan coffee table as part of the package. 

Or, for the ultimate decadent touch, check out our range of daybeds.  VIP guests at WeAreFstvl last summer loved the supreme luxury of our four poster Antibes Daybeds, complete with voile drapes. Just perfect for kicking back, chilling out in the sunshine, and simply watching the world go by.

Festival themed parties

White rattan sofas and coloured cube seats in tentFestival-themed private parties have also emerged as a trend recently. One lucky girl enjoyed this spectacular extravaganza,  ‘Gypfest’, (pictured right) for her 13th birthday last summer.  Event planners Whitepaper Events created an amazing festival ambience, festooning the tents with balloons and colourful light up letters.  Party guests enjoyed chilling on our white rattan furniture, and,  together with some cool, coloured cube ottomans, they created an vivid eye-popping effect! (A real live pop star, Louisa Johnson, also made an appearance! )
