Tickets for the Latitude festival go on sale on Monday (10) from 9am.
The festival takes place from Thursday July 18 to Sunday July 21 at Henham Park, Southwold
Latitude sits at the heart of the summer, with its innovative programming and stunning site design creating a spectacular weekend for 35,000 people in the beautiful surroundings of Henham Park.
It was named ‘Best Family Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards this week, and is unequalled in the diversity and quality of the artists it hosts.
It also leads the way among summer festivals in using the natural landscape of the site to elevate and inform artists’ performances.
Over the past seven years, the organisers have constantly adapted the festival to bring new experiences and utilise the unique spaces available.
Changes in recent years include the creation of The Faraway Forest as an interactive destination to marvel at; the addition of the Sunrise Bridge to allow for easier movement around the site; The Inbetweeners’ Teen Area for Latitude-loving teens and In The Woods has now developed into a multi-sensory area with art spaces, audio and visual installations and a number of well-known late night DJs keeping the party alive until the small hours.
Revellers can be sure that their ticket will guarantee them access to a huge and diverse selection of music.
Whether they want debuts or exclusive performances, classical or dance, the popular or the obscure, Latitude has it all.
Over the past seven years Latitude has witnessed Florence and The Machine’s first ever festival headline appearance, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Elbow.
This year Latitude welcomed almost half of the Mercury Music Prize 2012 nominees. Richard Hawley, Ben Howard and Michael Kiwanuka all delighted crowds at the Obelisk Arena, Lianne La Havas lit up the second arena and the crowned winners Alt-J made their festival debut on The Lake Stage.
The line-up in the Comedy Arena is always highly anticipated. Star names who have performed in previous years include Jack Dee, Tim Minchin, Alan Carr and Michael McIntyre.
The Literary Arena features respected writers and speakers each year, some of those who have previously appeared include Sebastian Faulks, Hanif Kureishi and Professor Brian Cox.
Around the banks of the central Latitude lake you will find the incredibly enticing Children’s Arena, where children are entertained all day and into the night with everything from pond dipping and face painting to helterskelter rides and theatre workshops.
The Inbetweeners’ Teen Area is for those kids who may just be a little too old for the Children’s Arena, but still want to get involved.
Teenagers can enjoy music, media and technology workshops, wildlife survival skills and assault courses suspended in the trees.
Families can also choose to stay in the Family Campsite where like-minded people, early morning activities and easy access to the Children’s Arena are guaranteed.
