Despite having had plenty of practice over the years, I still like to be well prepared before setting off for a festival. For a few days before departure, my map library – yes, I have a room so designated – serves as a loading bay and is filled up in readiness with all the necessaries. No last minute packing for me, and anyway, it heightens the anticipation. Yet I still worry that I’ve missed an essential. Here’s the list so far.

Help me out. Have I missed anything?
