Portable toilets for festivals – a guide to festival toilet hire

20 February 2023

The first music festivals on this year’s event calendar are just around the corner and our guide to toilet hire for festivals has everything organisers need to know.

Festival toilets

Most of us have been to festivals where you have to queue for what seems like forever (missing your favourite bands in the process), but why are the queues so long? Well, with the average festival attendance being in the tens of thousands (in 2015, 27.7 million people went to British music events!), and people dashing to the nearest loo during breaks and changeovers in the line-up, it’s not surprising that you have to queue. Add into the mix an insufficient number of portable toilets in far flung corners of the site, and you get the picture.   

Festival toilet hire

Our standard plastic portable toilets are perfect for high attendance events such as music festivals but, organisers, don’t your festival goers deserve more? With people’s expectations rising year on year, if you want your event to be remembered for all the right reasons, it’s time to consider the benefits of luxury toilet hire.

What do organisers need to consider?

Just in terms of toilet and wash facilities, festival organisers have to take the site of the festival into consideration; what is the access like? Is there are any mains power? What about a water supply? Then they need to think about how many toilets they will need as well as the type and size of portable toilet unit. If the event is family friendly and inclusive, there needs to be adequate provision such as baby changing facilities and disabled portable toilets.

The benefits of luxury portable toilets for outdoor events

The majority of music festivals are known as green field festivals, for obvious reasons, and so don’t have permanent toilet facilities onsite, or even close by. With portable toilet hire that’s never a problem, giving organisers much more freedom when it comes to choosing a venue and allowing them to consider all sites. The beauty of luxury toilet trailers is that a combination of units can be supplied to suit individual event needs and can be positioned at strategic points around a large site, ensuring that no one has far to go to get to a toilet.

For festivals over a long weekend, attendees will also appreciate being able to keep clean and fresh throughout their stay and organisers are hiring portable shower units to help with this.

The benefits of mobile shower units at music festivals

Give your festival goers the opportunity to stay clean and refreshed during your event and they will have a better experience, and be more likely to return or recommend. Cheaper than installing permanent facilities, our shower units can be grouped to suit your venue and offer a pleasant, home from home experience. On top of that, portable showers reduce the waste from proprietary wet wipes, the usual go-to for festival cleanliness.
