Repairing a tent at the festival

Is something wrong with your tent at the festival? You can repair it easily with Gaffer tape. Click here for the tutorial for different types of damage.



Level of difficulty : Original & quick

A loud “crack”, a little “whoosh” – so much for the tent! Luckily, many kinds of damage can be fixed with a couple strips of Gaffer tape, from torn fly screens and pole suspenders to broken loops and outer seams. That’s why this all-around tape needs to be in every festival bag.
