The third annual LATITUDE FESTIVAL is set to kick off in just four days time, on July 17, and are starting to get our camping gear together and testing our Wi-Fi connectivity – so that we’ll be able to bring you blow-by-blog reports direct from Henham Park, Suffolk.

If you’re coming to what will be the music and arts event of the Summer -make sure you check out our recommended artists and performer’s Countdown Previews – where we are attempting to forecast some of the expected highlights for the forthcoming weekend!

Talking of forecasts – according to the BBC’s five-day forecast for Halesworth – temperatures remain warm, but with light showers up until Friday… so pack a cagoule and wellies… but hopefully, as was the case last year, there will be no, actual, mud.

From Obelisk mainstage headlining acts Franz Ferdinand, Sigur Ros and Interpol via acts such as Blondie, Amadou & Mariam and Martha Wainwright on the Uncut Arena stage to newer bands such as Crystal Castles and Black Lips – there are sure to be several musical treats across the numerous stages.

Don’t forget there are also several top notch comedians coming to raise the canvas roof with laughter, including Mark Thomas, Bill Bailey and annecdotal poet Simon Armitage.

Plus Radio 4 will be broadcasting live from Henham Park, including a festival edition of classic programme Just A Minute.

Stay up to date with all that will be occuring at Latitude – pre-festival, at the festival, and post-festival. Everything. We’ll be reporting at throughout and then collating YOUR views and reviews when you get back!
