1. Eurohike Primavera
With its tunnel-like design, separate bedroom and large porch area, the two-man Primavera is one of the more spacious cheap festival tents out there. Fibreglass poles mean it's lightweight, easy to carry to festivals and put up when you get there. Price: £109. Stockist info: www.millets.co.uk.
Weighing just under two kilos (or the equivalent of a couple of bags of sugar), the Gelert is a seriously lightweight tent. While a bit of a snug fit for two people, it pitches in minutes and is easy to take down and pack up - allowing you to be off before the traffic jams start. Price: £39.95.

3. Ragland Two-Man
The Ragland two-man tent is again a little on the small side, but it's also compact for carrying around and easy to pitch. It has a front porch area for storage and is perfect to take you through the festival season. Price: £49.99. Stockist info: www.halfords.com.
4. Vango Zetes 300
The modern design of the Zetes 300 makes it the perfect cheap - but stylish - festival tent. With a large covered porch and spacious sleeping area, this three-man tent will house two people plus luggage perfectly, and with a pitching time of just 10 minutes is ideal for first-time campers. Price: £75. Stockist info: www.vango.co.uk.
5. Vaude Campo Compact
The stylish Campo dome tent is small and compact, yet still pretty spacious inside. Resistant to even the most violent downpours, they're well-ventilated, super-easy to pitch and come in a snappy green or sand colour. Price: £155. Stockist info: www.vaude.co.uk.
