I'm spending 3 months in Europe beginning August 7th and camping at the Reading Festival outside London 8/24-8/26. I don't think I feel like lugging a tent around all over Europe so I think I'll just buy a cheap one in London and ditch it after the fest. Does anyone have any suggestions where I should go? Thanks

Not sure how cheap it'd be but there's a sports store in Covent Garden on the south side near the Maple Leaf Pub. perhaps try there

If there's a Carrefour, go there and get one. My brother bought one while we were in Spain and it was like 8 Euro (just a two person bivy). Of course, it'll probably be more expensive there, but still cheap.
