Of course, you can use a simple blue tarp to claim your space at a festival, but that’s about as much fun as just sitting on wet grass.
No longer does a choice need to be made between water repellant tarps and the coziness of blankets. The Colorado-made outdoor 8’ x 5’ blanket/tarp combines both and has a velcro pocket to hold your concert essentials and built-in grommet rings make it easy to stake it down or hang it up.
Tarpestry also makes a small version that they say is the perfect baby-changing accessory or meditation mat.
