On 14th – 17th July in the sumptuous surrounds of the Suffolk countryside, the welcoming daisy-adorned gates will open for the 6th edition of the magical and fantastical Latitude Festival.
Since its inception in 2006, Latitude has changed the face of festivals forever, with a passion only matched by its ambition. Encompassing all aspects of the art and music worlds Latitude is the only place that brings together the best in music, literature, comedy, poetry, film, theatre, cabaret, art, dance, operaand fashion for one spectacular weekend.
Bigger and better for 2011 Latitude has an increased arena size but with no capacity increase, allowing festival goers to roam the site freely while keeping its intimate and cosy feel; and there is also a second bridge across the lake from which crowds can enjoy spectacular light and visual displays and ad hoc performances. With an unrivalled programme of music and arts scheduled all weekend long, Latitude will continue to inspire and innovate, enlighten and engage with
another incredible event promised for 2011.

Spread over four bespoke arenas dedicated to music, Latitude offers an incredible array of musical talent, hand-picked and carefully selected to create the perfect soundtrack to the perfect weekend. Whether it’s the hottest new band or the once in a life-time chance to see a legend perform; if it’s rock or pop, folk or blues, electro or dance, Latitude’s music arenas have it all. Over the past five years, Latitude has seen jaw-dropping performances from Sigur R*s, Florence + the Machine, The xx, Arcade Fire, Mars Volta, Crystal Castles, Villagers, Blondie, Magazine, Grace Jones and Thom Yorke to name just a few and this year’s line-up looks set to offer yet more incredible
musical treats.
The National, Paolo Nutini and Suede will perform this year at Obelisk Arena while 2010 Mercury Music Prize nominees and NME Award winners, Foals are enjoying a meteoric rise to success that now includes the top spot at The Word Arena, having played lower down the bill on the Obelisk Arena back in 2008.
