The purpose of this packing list is to help you never forget anything important while taking part in an open-air festival or an outdoor party that lasts several days. Some of these suggestions could ease your festival life dramatically. In all probability this list contains a bit more than you actually need, therefore all items are to be considered as simply providing inspiration and may of course be omitted according to requirements. Feel free to send additions to: Richard Cattien <rc.foreign at>
