With many music festivals around the globe beginning to hone in on a sense of community through camp sites, interactive experiences, and more, there may be a much more comfortable and in fact stylish way to stay the night next time you head to see your favorite artists perform. Recently, two Belgian design firms have created an efficient new type of campsite that stacks tiny sleeping pods together like a honeycomb (depicted above). The pods look like they should provide a bit more comfort and space than your average sleeping tent — they even have power and a king-size bed (WOAH). But, the overall structure shouldn't take up dramatically more room because of its vertical construction, using a short stairwell to provide access the upper levels.
The campsite is cleverly called "B-and-Bee", and it began testing at a festival this summer. Specifications for the units will be finalized this fall, and the design firms, Compaan and Labeur, hope to have them ready for people to start sleeping in next year. They don't lay out what the business model will be for them, and presumably you won't be bringing a half-dozen of these into festivals like Coachella and Ultra Music Festival. Instead, it seems like a few B-and-Bees might be arranged at festival site that attendees might rent out ahead of time.
