Today is the first day of summer (apparently!?) and the first day of Glasto, which can only mean one thing! – festival season has officially begun!
This year I’m heading to Latitude festival with Naked Juice. It’s my first time attending the festival and after hearing great things about Latitude in the past, am looking forward to experiencing the festival famed for its pink sheep for myself.
It seems Latitude has so much more to offer than the average music festival, with a full programme of culture and arts, and hidden areas to discover.
Last month I teamed up with NME and GWR to write a piece around what I most enjoy about attending summer festivals. So after checking out Latitude’s extensive programme, I wanted to share my preview of what I’m most looking forward to seeing:
Sunrise Area – If you go down to the woods today… well first thing in the morning over Latitude festival, you’ll find the biggest up-and-coming stars of the music world – beats an iPhone alarm clock!
Faraway Forest – Whimsical theatre performances and interactive art installations set in a world of woodland imagination, the Faraway Forest offers a truly utopian world of your own making
Wellcome Trust Hub – A series of talks supported by the Wellcome Trust, a global charitable foundation dedicated to improving health by supporting bright minds in science, the humanities and social sciences, and public engagement
In The Woods – International DJs spinning the decks in a woodland setting, think fairy lights, lanterns and top dance tunes from a selection of the world’s best DJs
Obelisk Arena – Finally, how can I forget the main stage! with such acts on offer such as The Maccabees, M83, Chvrches, The Lumineers and Laura Mvula
