This year, England's Cornbury Music Festival featured a pop-up hotel for guests looking for a more luxurious festival experience. While many millennials enjoy roughing it at music festivals, those with a little bit of extra cash to burn are willing to spend more in order to enjoy a more comfortable experience. As a result, festivals such as Cornbury have taken steps to cater to discerning festival-goers.
In addition to camping and glamping, this year's Cornbury Music Festival also included on-site hotel accommodations. The pop-up boutique hotel allowed guests to stay close to all the festival action without sacrificing comfort, peace or privacy. As a result, guests were able to stay in luxury yurts complete with bathrooms, private terraces, on-site spa services and a dedicated dining area. As outlined on the festival website, the pop-up hotel was designed to "offer the romance of glamping with the services of a boutique hotel."
The luxury hotel experience demonstrates the growing demand for more upscale festival accommodations for music lovers with money to spend.
