Ten things on the Latitude line-up you didn't see coming

The line-up for Suffolk's lovely arts festival is bursting at the seams with exciting stuff this year, and there are still tickets left! Continue to feel smug about the fact that you're not in a Glastonbury mud bath and see whether we can tempt you with these curious highlights.

A poetic pantomime starring Macaulay Culkin will be screened, and followed with a Q&A from its creator Adam Green. The American indie darling will also perform the score from his bizarre take on 'Aladdin' with a full band.

A porn addiction salon chaired by a professor from Bristol University, who'll be questioning a neuroscientist, a former editor of Loaded and Christopher Green, a performer who is currently working on a Wellcome Trust-funded experiential theatre show about the condition.

A late-night Hawaiian party in the woods from Richio Suzuki, who'll be playing rock 'n' roll, '50s RnB and '60s Soul. Guest DJ and dancer Oscar Romp also promises a Northern Soul dance display.

Meilyr Jones

The chance to fall in love with an effeminate Welsh boy – be it just his wonderful voice or his magical stage presence. Meilyr Jones will play The Lake Stage on Saturday, and his witty indie-pop will definitely win you over.

Silly but sensitive tributes to two of the icons we've lost this year come courtesy of comedian Marcus Brigstocke's Prince Fest and Adam Buxton's special Bowie edition of BUG. Celebrate the legends with a lighthearted wallow.

An encounter with the spirit world at 'Séance'. Climb into a pitch-dark shipping container for a 15-minute encounter with the 'other side', masterminded by experimental theatre mavens Glen Neath and David Rosenberg. 

Tea and jam in a Ukranian holiday house that's miles nicer than your actual house. Dash Arts will explore Tsarist rule, Soviet repression and post Soviet anarchy in a specially-decked out Dacha – with plenty of Eastern European-style snacks to sweeten the deal.

A dragged up punk gig by a sharp-suited troupe of live artists. 'Cuncrete' is Rachael Clerke's tough, messed up look at London's housing crisis. Watch her snarl her way through a set of punk songs, accompanied by her moustachioed band 'The Great White Males'.

A fiercely urban circus performance at 'Landscape With Monsters', courtesy of acclaimed Aussie circus troupe C!RCA. Their work is inspired by stark industrial landscapes – a perfect reminder of what you're (not) missing in the green fields of Latitude.

An invitation to slip into bed with a stranger (in the most innocent way possible) at a dreamlike installation from Argentinian artist Fernando Rubio. Tuck yourself into the crisp white sheets and listen as a performer whispers stories of childhood.
