Hotels Are Too Expensive and Camping Sucks - The Festival Solution

The choice between a comfortable but expensive hotel room that is far away from the festival, and a tent that is cheap and inside the festival but uncomfortable - most festival goers have weighed the options. But really, neither is a great choice.

Camping on site puts you close to the action, and is usually pretty affordable, but you don't have a shower, a proper toilet, a proper bed, heat at night, or ac during the day. Staying in a hotel is way more comfortable because you have a real bed, running water, and climate control, but they are usually a significant drive from the festival grounds, and they can double or triple the cost of your festival trip.

What if you could rent a little room with a real bed, heat, ac, and easy access to a proper bathroom - right on the festival grounds? There are a few festivals that provide onsite cabins, but these are rare and usually sell out right away if they are available at all. A startup called Nearby is trying to change all of that.

They are seeking to create a mobile hostel system for festivals, that will allow organizers to rent modular units that can be deployed on festival grounds at a price point that should keep the costs very reasonable for attendees.
