Packing List for Latitude Festival

Not long now until Latitude Festival, but what to take hey?

Here’s what I’ve got on in my bag and on my kit list for Latitude Festival in a few days’ time.

Current weather for Suffolk looks like anything from 20-26 degrees and possible rain, so I  need to be prepared for all. You may be tempted to take as little as possible but if your outfit gets caked in mud on the first day its nice to have something fresh to wear the next day, and something clean to come home in too. I’m also on a strict budget when I’m there so I don’t want to have to buy warmth, rainproofing or sun shields either.

Latitude Packing list

  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Cowboy welly boots – check those beauts out from Talolo.
  • Little bag of jewellery – always a great way to liven up an outfit
  • Moisturiser
  • 4 packets of sultanas – just because I have them and you can save a lot taking your own food to festivals
  • 2 shots of jagermeister – keep me warm
  • Shampoo and conditioner – I’m a festival shower convert since the Coachella showers so I want to be prepared if the opportunity arises.
  • Bag of lip balm, plasters, nurofen, little mirror, toothpaste, cotton buds
  • Head torch x 2
  • Make up in a hard, waterproof box.
  • Nokia Lumia 1020 with battery pack
  • Eyemask
  • Travel John toilet things
  • Baby wipes
  • Face wipes
  • Flip flops – I’ve got my Flop Zs as they’re so comfortable and my sandals for style too.
  • Scarves – always useful for either sitting on or covering up hair
  • Thin black cardigan
  • Drystar Silver rain coat – easy to pack and a festival packing essential
  • Denim shirt
  • Brown and blue mini dress
  • Black tights
  • Black vest top
  • Perfume
  • Refillable water bottle
  • Camera with a zoom on it
  • Half a bottle of vodka – I’ll need to decanter this into a plastic bottle
  • Patterned Billabong trousers – so comfortable and easy to wear I might travel in these as they’ll be good when I’m having to bend down and put up the tent etc.
  • Yellow tshirt top
  • Techno dress for late night raving
  • Thermal jumper – you can never be too warm when it comes to night time at a British festival
  • Coachella top to sleep in
  • Patterned shorts in case it’s really hot
  • Billabong bikini top

Packing list for festivals

Not pictured but just as essential

  • 5 knickers
  • Three pairs of socks – I’ll need them for warmth at night, even if I wear flip flops all day.
  • Hoody – absolutely essential
  • Leggings
  • Umbrella
  • Black ¾ trousers
  • Towel – I don’t think I’ve ever taken a towel to a festival before, bar Coachella, but I’m camping in the press area so I feel like it’ll be more likely to have a shower in there.
  • iPhone and charger
  • Sun lotion
  • Toothbrush
  • Black pumps
  • Frayed handbag
  • Pillow
  • Lilo – cheaper and lighter than an air bed
  • Mozzie spray

I want to take lots of pics at Latitude, but I don’t want to be wasting time charging my phone, which is why I’m taking my camera, my iPhone and my Lumia 1020 which I’ve just bought an extra battery pack for. I’m also going to take my mini tripod.

Have I forgotten anything?

    So I'm doing my first festival and it's Latitude. Never been one for roughing it, but have gotta knock this sucka off my bucket list at some point, this is my moment...bit like Martine said.

    I'm doing this with a couple of mates whom I trust to keep me safe and sound throughout the entire weekend...that's the plan, I have faith in them! So, being my first foray into festivals and ting, I was like on a mission, first the tent, then the sleeping bag, the essentials really, but my essential list kept getting bigger and bigger. Can't see you've mentioned duct tape? :) Yes so I have a few more bits than you have on display, but girlfriend...these are all essentials in my eyes! Fingers crossed I've covered all eventualities...if not there's always next year. You live and learn innit!

    Can't believe I'm gonna lose my cherry, hopefully it's truly memorable for all the right reasons :) Have a good one yourself x

      Haha, good old Martine McCutcheon. A constant source of inspiration for sure! Yeah there are so many things that you *could* take but you’ll only regret it when you have to carry it all. I’m just taking the stuff I *need*. Hope you have a great festival – looks like the weather is going to be amazing!

    Great ideas! The last thing you want is to wake up after an (inevitably) heavy night and not have any neurofen. A lot of these things may make or break the weekend! And baby wipes will SAVE YOUR LIFE.

    YES. All the baby wipes. :)
