Festival Camping

Take a campervan to your next festival for extra style and comforts!

Your guide to festival camping… by campervan!

From iconic camping music festivals like Coachella and Sasquatch to festivals for foodies, beer, yoga, and beyond, renting a campervan can be an affordable way to bring some extra comforts along for the ride.

5 reasons to rent a campervan for your next festival

1. Comfort

Escape’s campervans comfortably sit and sleep 4-5 people with the rooftop sleeper. The “dining room” converts into an oversized queen bed and there’s a full kitchen with a sink, stove, and fridge in the back, so you aren’t limited to trail mix and PB&Js. String up some fairy lights and you’ve got yourself the ultimate set up!

2. Accessories

In addition to picnic chairs included for free in your rental, we offer picnic tables, solar showers (no more waiting in long lines for the campground shower!), AUX cords, sunshade awnings, and more for you to further enhance your trip. All of your festival camping essentials and accessories are ready when you pick up.

3. Style

Our campervans are hand-painted by talented artists in LA rather than being covered in branding. Plus, it’s easy to make friends with fellow campervan travelers!

4. Convenience

We have the largest campervan fleet in North America, with 10 depot locations across the US and Canada, most of which are near international airports. Our campervans come fully-equipped with all bedding and kitchen items you need to pick up the van and hit the road ready to go–all you need to do is stop by the grocery store to stock up on delicious eats to fuel your adventure!

5. Budget

We pride ourselves on our No Hidden Costs policy, meaning everything you need is included in our daily rate rather than tacking on extra fees you didn’t know about. Campervans are more economical than RVs and cheaper than hotel rooms. Split the cost among your friends and you’ll get your vehicle and lodging all in one for a low price!

“Dear Escape Campervans! I just had the best experience of my life renting a van from you. I took the van around California; visited Yosemite and Big Sur… but most importantly, your van CHANGED my life at the music festival, Lightning in a Bottle. It really changed my entire festival world and I have been festing for 7 years. I think your vans are so perfect for festival go-ers because as soon as you’re the kid with the coolest van, you’re the coolest kid at the fest. Thank you so much!!!” – Julia

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING EXPERIENCE. Got the van for Coachella and let me tell you, our camp spot was the best set up thanks to the van! We had AC while others struggled in heat under their tents, nights were cozy, and we had access to clean water. We didn’t spend money on food at Coachella because we cooked in our van! So so so so so THANKFUL! Definitely renting again for my next camping trip :)” – Jhosselyn

Important tips for taking an Escape campervan to a festival


  • Certain weekends sell out early and quickly (a certain festival in California in April, for example) and we may require a high-demand fee to accommodate the volume of pick ups and drop offs.
  • You get price breaks the longer you rent and you get 100 miles/day FREE with your rental averaged over your trip (more days = more free miles). So, make a road trip out of it and save some money!
  • DO NOT attempt to drive under the influence. Your insurance may be void if something were to happen and they find that you were not sober. (Hint: there’s a big comfy bed in your campervan, so you have no excuse to drive, anyway!)

Burning Man

  • Going to Burning Man is at your own risk.
    • CDW insurance does not apply once you enter the Playa.
    • SLI Insurance, however, does apply and is encouraged.
    • Due to the harsh environment, we are not able to offer Roadside Assistance on the Playa.
  • Due to cleaning requirements after the fact, we charge a $1000 fee for all rentals going to the Playa. If you fail to notify us that you’ll be heading to Burning Man in your campervan, fees of over $2000 may apply.
  • We do not allow our Big Sur models to go to Burning Man.
  • We do not allow our Indie Camper models to go to Burning Man.
  • We do not allow rooftop sleepers to go to Burning Man.

Like any music festival, “Roo” comes with some hurdles and lots of logistics. Basically, there is a way to Bonnaroo right. Just in time, our Atlanta pickup location has launched, which makes it an easy 4-hour drive to the festival grounds. Whether you’re in a getaway van or simply end up camping, we wanted to provide you the top tips for the ultimate Roo (and general fest) experience.
