Latitude 2018

Having started in 2006 with an approximate attendance of 10,000 people, Latitude has only gone from strength-to-strength over the years. From the 12th-15th July this year, the festival is now set to host up to 40,000 attendees of all age groups. 

The beauty of the Suffolk festival is that despite the growth in popularity, the festival has maintained its ethos of providing something for all.

Latitude boasts one of the biggest celebration of arts of any UK festival as well as entertainment offered for children and families and late-night party goers alike.
