Latitude first burst into life in 2006, organisers drew their inspiration for the event from the format used by many of the European festivals. It's now become an absolute must having forged itself quite a significant and unique place in the festival calendar.
From the start Latitude was never going to be just about music, neither was it going to play lip service to the added dimensions of the festival. It was the first UK festival to bring you a full range of performing art and its unique selling point lies in the fact that it provides individual arenas specifically dedicated to film, theatre, poetry, literature, cabaret, and comedy.
Latitude really is a rather special and quite magical experience where festival goers can expect to find a truly diverse range of top quality music alongside the eclectic and magical array of art, comedy, film, literature, theatre, performance art, dance, sculpture, workshops, restaurants and waiter service bars.
It's all set in one of the most delightful festival sites in the UK boasting a stunning lake which is beautifully lit at night. In a very short space of time Latitude has successfully carved its own unique place in the festival circuit, offering new and different experiences for festival goers, it has exceeded its promise - it’s a different festival offering much more than the norm for the more discerning out there.
Latitude is quite magical so if you want a weekend filled with delight and wonder with first class entertainment then this one is for you. It's a Safeconcerts recommended festival, an event that is quite unique, special, somewhat etherial and what's more it's ultra Über cool.
