Festival goers have been reminded to check their home insurance policies prior to setting off to the large music events.
New research from Halifax has revealed four-in-ten attendees may lose some of their belongings at the outdoor gatherings.
According to the findings, almost a quarter of survey respondents are unaware whether or not their valuable possessions are covered when taken outside the home.
Martyn Foulds, senior claims manager at Halifax Home Insurance, noted: "With a growing number of people owning expensive smartphones, cameras and sunglasses, it's important that festival-goers and anyone going to large scale events check their policy."
Indeed, the study revealed 15 per cent of those involved in the poll said they have no protection in place for costly products such as iPhones.
Mr Foulds explained checking a policy and extending its contents is a simple step that can save a lot of hassle if items are lost or stolen.
