FHM caught up with Carl Cox ahead of his Global Gathering and Ibiza appearances to get his essential festival items...

04  Money

Whether it’s for food, drinks or getting home. Make sure you’ve got something.

03  Mobile phone

Iit’s probably going to be completely drained after the first day or so but you should at least use it while you can for pictures and finding your mates. After that though you’re probably on your own.

02  Carrier bags for your nice shoes.

Unless you’re going abroad it’s probably going to rain so make sure you bag and tag your good stuff!

01  Your mates.

If you can’t bring any of the above but can bring your mates then at least you know you’ll have a good time.

Catch Carl Cox on Saturday at GlobalGathering, 26-27th July at Long Marston Airfield, Stratford Upon Avon, where he'll be hosting the Carl Cox and Friends Arena. www.globalgathering.com
