At the festival we can camp in Villages, Teesside Hackspace plans to have a village where we can camp together. We should plan to make our village awesome.

Food is available on the site, not sure on pricing, but bringing your own will inevitably be cheaper. Note there is a Tesco in Ledbury (2.3miles away).

Money Money can buy food and/or beverages
Medication Bring your own pain killers/hangover cures, EMF do not supply this! First aiders will be on site.
Camping Chairs guarantee a place to sit and for your own tent, we can look into hiring hay bales nearer the time

Toiletries Stuff to wash with, towels, toothbrush etc.

Sun Cream There might be sun at some point and you'll be outdoors
Bug Spray It's near water and some people have tasty blood
Jumpers, Jacket and Hoodies It will be cold at night and you'll be outdoors
Bag to carry valuables (like laptop -useful for some workshops) around
Camping Stuff + clothes assuming your going to camp
