On July 14-17 in the Suffolk countryside, the welcoming daisy-adorned gates will open for the 6th edition of the Latitude Festival 2011.
Since its arrival in 2006, Latitude has encompassed all aspects of art and music. It is the only place that brings together the best in music, literature, comedy, poetry, film, theatre, cabaret, art, dance, opera and fashion for one big weekend.
Latitude has an increased arena size but with no capacity increase, allowing festival goers to roam the site freely while keeping its intimate feel; and there is also a second bridge across the lake from which crowds can enjoy light and visual displays and ad hoc performances. With a programme of music and arts scheduled all weekend long, Latitude will continue to inspire and engage in 2011.
Founder and Creator of Latitude Festival and Managing Director of Festival Republic Melvin Benn says:
“I am extremely proud of what has been achieved over the past five years of Latitude. We’ve been listening to our fans and this year, for our sixth edition, we are making some changes to the site which will further enhance everyone’s enjoyment of their festival weekend. Latitude is ‘more than just a music festival’ and this year’s programme across the full spectrum of arts and music is utterly exceptional.”
