LATITUDE FESTIVAL is gearing up to kick off tomorrow (July 17), and‘s tent has arrived and the air mattresses and sleeping bags are packed and we’re ready to set off to Suffolk tomorrow.

We’re looking forward to starting off our festival weekend, taking in the atmosphere when the festival arena gates open at 5pm.

Tomorrow night we will certainly be winding down from camp setting up by heading down to the lake for Simon Desorgher’s Music of the Spheres: described as a bizarre sort of ballet involving a giant white floating sphere, set to speaker-bounced flute music from a flautist suspended INSIDE the bubble…The show starts at 10pm.

Meanwhile early evening will see The Irrepressibles Light & Shadow Sound Installations show In The Woods area take place from 5.45pm. Award-winning sound artist William Turner-Duffin and lighting designer Andy Hammond have created an ambient show with the help of a ten-piece orchestra.

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!

Click on the artist names to see more…Julian Cope, British Sea Power, dEUS, Martha Wainwright, Death Cab For Cutie, The Coral, The Breeders, Grinderman and Buzzcocks.

Weather watch: the Halesworth 5-day forecast is looking changeable, with heavy rain due to fall on Saturday, but the skies look like they are going to clear for a FULL day of sun on Sunday!

Latitude festival organisers are also urging all those travelling to the site by train to go to Ipswich and get the shuttle buses to the site from there.

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!
