What's On Your Festival Road-Trip Playlist?
 

As festival season kicks off properly this weekend with Isle Of Wight and Download, we're talking road trip songs. Curating a fitting playlist to soundtrack your drive is essential. As well as a car filled with wellies, wine and wotsits, you've got to have some banging tunes that'll get you in the mood. I've got a vivid memory of snaking down the final leafy winding roads of Somerset en route to Glastonbury in 2011 listening to Aphex Twin. It was a perfect prologue to the completely unpredictable and immersive experience of Worthy Farm - and whenever I listen to 'Drukqs' now, I can almost taste that anticipation. We've collected together 50 tracks for you in a handy Spotify playlist below - and check them all out in our gallery here - but now it's your turn. What do you listen to when you're on a road trip? And why?
