READY This item is ready to be taken to EMF and can be found in the specified location. Items with this status must have a location specified.

We need to aim to get the location of all the items that are not already at EMF Camp down to either the "Infrastructure Store" or the "EMF Pile" which is located on the cutting table in the studio. There are some exceptions which include items which are not feasible to deliver to the Hackspace before EMF and need to be collected en route although we want to keep these to an absolute minimum.

Attendee Packing List

Aside from the official packing list at: https://wiki.emfcamp.org/wiki/Packing_List we have put together a few suggestions:

Item Reason
Decent quality long extension lead If you want power to your tent
4-way extension lead or similar Plugs will be limited, bring to ensure you have enough for your devices
Teacup Having your own teacup you can re-use will help us out
Medication Bring your own pain killers/hangover cures, we do not supply this! First aiders will be on site.
Camping Chairs Chairs have been ordered for village use, bring your own to guarantee a place to sit and for your own tent.
Long Ethernet cable If you want ethernet in your tent
Micro USB cables The EMF badge charges via a micro USB cable and you'll probably want a spare for your phone/kindle/tablet etc.
Torch It gets dark at night
Rubber Mallet To help put up your own tent and others
Drinks There is a bar but you might want to bring spirits or other drinks for yourself.
Snacks To keep your going between meals
Toiletries Stuff to wash with, towels, toothbrush etc.
Raincoat and Wellies It will probably rain at some point and it's in a field
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
