Latitude Festival given ‘Pilot Event’ status

Latitude Festival News Report

We start our News Report this week on the topic of festivals. There is presently a overriding sense of doom as the Government Roadmap remains in doubt.

One festival did go ahead last week, and that was the pilot version of Download Festival. We were there and you can read our review here. The question now remains what is the possibility of other festivals going ahead?

That question has been answered for Latitude Festival, as it has now been confirmed as another pilot event for the Governments research programme. That gives Latitude the guarantee that it will go ahead.

The lineup is typically eclectic for Latitude with headline sets from Wolf Alice, The Chemical Brothers, Bastille and Bombay Bicycle Club. You can also catch the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Supergrass, Fontaines D.C., Black Honey, Dream Wife and Shame.

Tickets are available here.
