The Festival That Refreshes The Parts Other Festivals Cannot!
As the memories of 2015 fade in to the fog that was New Years Eve, there can be few moments quite as delicious as watching Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on stage at Latitude. His performance electric, the thousands of fans appreciative and the Sun setting over the idyllic Suffolk country-side, are moments that make life worth living. Indeed Latitude 2015 really was a year to remember, it was of course it’s 10th anniversary year, and the list of headliners was impressive.
Latitude has from its first year been a festival for the lovers of the arts. In fact as any Latituder will tell you, the main problem is deciding on who you want to see – there truly is something for everyone! There’s the main Obelisk Arena, BBC Radio 6 stage, the i-Arena, the Lake stage, the Alcove, the Comedy Tent, Theatre, the Waterfront stage, the Film & Music Marquee, the Little House, the Faraway Forest, the Poetry Tent, Cabaret, the Literary Arena, Pandora’s Playground, the Live Art House, In The Woods, the Shed of Stories, the Wellcome Trust Hub, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, and Lavish. Try saying those in one breath!
Headlining the comedy tent last year was Mr QI himself, Alan Davies, it was standing room only in the huge open marquee, and it wasn’t long before he had the crowd doubled over. Other hot comics hitting that stage included Jason Manford, Jon Richardson, Josh Widdicombe & Alex Brooker, to name just a few (for a full list, see the Line-Up Poster).
One of the most popular bands to hit the enormous OBELISK ARENA were the Manic Street Preachers. Their set was amazing and included Sex Power Money Love and If you Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next. The energy that the Manics put in to their set was a master-class in how it’s done and the huge crowd that had assembled was a tribute to the fact they’re still awesome!
However, memories are all well and good, it’s always nice to look back, but there’s nothing better than the excitement of looking in to the future, and so to Latitude 2016. It won’t be long now until the first acts for this years festival will be released. So pull out your smart phones and make sure to keep Thursday 14th -Sunday 17th July 2016 free.
Whether you’re just coming for a day, or communing with nature in a pop-up tent, or indeed if you’re splashing out on a Luxury Option, there’s one thing you can be sure of, you’ll have a fabulous time, and you’ll be making those memories that’ll keep you going until 2017!
