MNEK – that’s em-en-ee-kay, in case you were too distracted by the topless, beret-wearing woman in his Every Little Word video to read the helpful pronunciation guide she was holding – is the latest intrepid festival-goer to reveal his packing list to us. 

The annoyingly talented 19-year-old has been generating serious buzz for a few years now, thanks to his songwriting and vocal contributions for the likes of Gorgon City, Rudimental, Duke Dumont and, um, The Saturdays. But now the soulful crooner has a burgeoning solo career to take care of and, consequently, is trekking his way around the country’s outdoor music events this summer, with stops at both Latitude and Lovebox next weekend. 

We caught up with MNEK and found out just what he’s bringing with him on his summer of festival fun.
