Last Minute Festival Essentials
Summer festival season is in full swing and whether you’re heading to an event locally, such as V Festival at Hylands Park in Chelmsford on 20th and 21st August, or further afield, such as Creamfields in Cheshire (25th – 28th August) or Bestival on the Isle of Wight (8th – 11th September), it’s easy to forget those last minute festival essentials in all the excitement.
You may have your tickets, tents, wellies and a fabulous capsule wardrobe ready to go, but make sure you refer to The Liberty’s definitive ‘last minute must-haves’ checklist before you hit the road!
