As the countdown to Barclaycard presents Latitude 2023 continues, first-timers may be wondering about what to pack for the weekend. As a rule of thumb, we recommend that you only bring what you’ll really need across the weekend, and pack what you can carry. The lighter you travel, the quicker you can unload and set up camp – the sooner you can enjoy the festival!
Not sure what the essentials are? We’ve compiled a handy guide to what to bring – and what NOT to bring!
