The award-winning Latitude Festival will take place from July 22nd-25th at Henham Park in Suffolk. The gathering will go ahead at full capacity as part of the U.K. government’s Event Research Programme (ERP). 

The gathering will mark the first major event after several cancelations following new COVID-19 restrictions introduced by U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Attendees will have the chance enjoy indie, rock, pop, and electronic music as well as comedy and other arts performances. Bastille, Rudimental, and The Chemical Brothers are headlining amongst others; 35,000 guests are expected.

Melvin Benn, the festival director of Latitude, said in a statement: “We have been working extremely hard to make sure that Latitude Festival can go ahead safely at full capacity. Becoming an ERP event gives us the security of going ahead.“ 

“Crucially the additional research collected at Latitude will benefit all festivals and live events moving forward.” Benn continued. “Everyone will be welcome to attend as long as they have a negative lateral flow test or proof of two vaccinations.”

Latitude is an annual music festival that first took place in 2006 at Henham Park. It has showcased a comprehensive bill of artists throughout its history. Among them are The Black Keys, Bloc Party and Lana del Rey as well as the legendary Kraftwerk.

The gathering also comprises elements of theatre, art, comedy, cabaret, poetry, politics, dance, and literature. Latitude has won multiple awards including “Best Major Festival” in 2017 at the UK Festival Awards.
