About the venue
The Latitude Festival is an annual music festival that takes place in Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk, England. It was first held in July 2006. Latitude is said to be more similar to continental European festivals; as well as a comprehensive bill of musicians, bands and artists across four stages - The Obelisk Arena, The BBC Radio 6 Music Stage, The i Arena, and the Huw Stephens-edited Lake Stage, the festival comprises elements of theatre, art, comedy, cabaret, poetry, politics, dance and literature.
The festival is run by Festival Republic (formerly the Mean Fiddler Group), which also run the Reading and Leeds festivals and up until 2013 was contracted to run Glastonbury Festival.
