Latitude Festival 2019: Stereophonics, Lana Del Rey and George Ezra on the bill for Suffolk's biggest party




Latitude Festival is returning to Henham Park near Southwold this weekend, and Stereophonics, Lana Del Rey and George Ezra are headlining.

Suffolk's biggest music festival is set to see 200,000 ticket holders enjoy acts, who also include Underworld, Loyle Carner, CHVRCHES, The Futureheads, Primal Scream, Slaves and Everything Everything this weekend (Friday, July 19 to Sunday, July 21).

Who is on the bill?

The fourteenth edition of Latitude is one of the most exciting line-ups ever.

Stereophonics replaced Snow Patrol as a headliner on the Saturday, and have recently performed in Thetford Forest - a gig enjoyed by the Bury Free Press' own Camille Berriman.

Hertford's finest George Ezra performs on Friday, fresh from a performance on the Pyramid Stage set of Glastonbury. His second album Staying at Tamara's was a UK number one last year and included the anthems Paradise and Shotgun.

Lana Del Ray has been chosen to close the main stage of Latitude on Sunday. With her long-awaited, and brilliantly titled, fifth album Norman F****** Rockwell slated for an August release, fans will be keen to hear any new material.

As ever, Latitude also boasts a strong comedy line-up, with Jason Manford, Michelle Wolf and Frank Skinner booked.

What is the weather forecast?

Much like the summer we have all enjoyed (at times) this year, this weekend's weather is set to be unpredictable.

Rain has been forecast for Friday evening into Saturday morning - although it should brighten up into the afternoon.

Sunday morning is expected to be sunny, although there is a chance of rain in the afternoon.

Temperatures are likely to be around 23°C for the duration.

Are tickets still available?

Yes. Adult weekend tickets cost £202.50, and can be bought here.

And a word from the police...

Ahead of Latitude, Suffolk Constabulary has issued a warning to festivalgoers to stay safe, as well as having fun.

The force released a statement today (Wednesday), which read:

"The main crime at music festivals across the UK tends to be thefts from tents on campsites. Phones, laptops, tablets and cash are typically the most stolen items. In previous years there have been a number of such offences, many on the first night of the festival when it’s likely that criminals target tents on the assumption that those camping are settling in, have not made plans for their security and may have withdrawn cash to see them through the weekend."
