Latitude Festival 2017 guide

A relaxed atmosphere and plenty of cultural nourishment have raised Latitude to the top rank of UK music festivals

First things first: when is Latitude Festival 2017?

It takes place in Henham Park, Southwold in Suffolk, from Friday July 13–Sunday July 16.

Who’s on the Latitude Festival line-up?


What’s the vibe?

Latitude is the ultimate laid-back weekend away, with a line-up of adventurous pop and alt rock in an idyllic setting. It’s very family-friendly and full of real-life Omega 3 thanks to its carefully programmed roster of comedians, poets, spoken word, and theatre. DJs are hidden in the woods for late night revelry, colourful sheep roam the surrounding fields, and you can wash it all down with a refreshing local ale. We’ll drink to that.

Anything else I should know?

After years of punters taking illicit dips, swimming in the Henham Park lake was officially allowed for the first time back in 2015. Head for the swimming area at the south of the arena if you fancy a splash.
