Dear Mummy, it’s no secret that we love a good festival. With six under our belt already this year, we’re always looking for items to make our festival life easier, especially when it comes to camping at an event. We love the outdoors and we adore camping under the stars so imagine our wonderment when we heard of a UV ‘night glow’ festival tent.
We were sent a smiley emoji tent to review and my folks loved the pattern and the nod to the 90’s rave scene. In the daylight this tent is striking and almost glows with neon brightness. Gorilla Glow Tents are beyond funky – we love their designs. They don’t just look amazing though, they are also super roomy (plenty of space for three people or two with a blow up mattress) and 100% waterproof – keeping you dry and comfortable no matter the weather.
But the amazing thing about these tents is that they use Night Glow technology to help festival goers find their way back to their tents. You certainly wouldn’t lose this tent during the day and in the pitch black you can use your ‘Tent Finder Controller’ a small UV LED light and remote control to illuminate your tent and guide you back to your sleeping bag safely.
Check out our video to see what we mean!
The tents are quick and easy to pitch (pop-up and go) meaning you’ll spend less time setting up and more time enjoying a festival or camping. They are easily transportable too, folding up into a nifty carry bag with shoulder strap and packs super flat and lightweight. The poles are built-in and bendy and you also get some tent pegs and guide ropes included.

For some reason your post reminds me of the latest Bridge Jones movie, when she can’t find her tent during a festival. I have never heard of this kind of tent before but it’s a great idea, especially when you go to large festivals like Glastonbury, where there are thousands of tents.
The tent finder is such a great idea! It would be a life saver for when you need to find our way back to the tent in the dark
The tent finder must be an absolute lifesaver especially when you need to find your way back to your tent in the dark
This tent is a proper good idea, we have just been looking for a simple one for a quick pop up stay so this is ideal x
I wish they had these tents during my festival days! I can’t even begin to explain the amount of time I spent wandering around a campsite looking for my tent!
It certainly looks very bright and it’s great their is the glow technology embedded to help find your tent in the dark. Glad it made sleeping outdoors fun
I just love that tent, the design is so colorful and fun
Oh wow what an awesome tent! Mummy would love this as she could easily find it! Pickle x
Man I would have LOVED that tend as a kid. I just had a bland red one growing up, nothing as exciting as this!
That is an awesome tent, my kids would adore it
What a great idea, I love that they’ve come up with the technology to help you find it in the dark. Nothing worse than getting lost amongst a sea of tents just wanting to have a sleep
Love it…what a fab idea! Gutted that we are past the festival scene but you never know as always wanted to take the kids to Glastonbury 🙂
The tent looks great. I like the cute green design.
That is one funky tent for sure, I love it. The tent finder is a fantastic idea nothing worse than trying to figure out where your tent is !!
Oh wow that looks fab! What a funky looking tent, you wouldn’t lose it!
This is fab! My friend has been to Glastonbury about 5 times and would LOVE this this.
Now, this is what I call a fab tent, love the emojis on it, how cute. I need one like this big time.
