Latitude Festival is back again for 2018 and if it was anything like last year, we’re in for a treat. Headliners of Latitude 2017 included Mumford & Sons, The 1975 and Fleet Foxes and acts like Goldfrapp, John Cale and Fatboy Slim were all part of the lineup.
Latitude Festival was born back in 2006, and since then it’s gained enormous popularity – it was even awarded Best Major Festival at last year’s UK Festival Awards.
The festival provides incredible artists, whether it be in music, comedy, poetry or the arts, and has appealed to both families and young people year on year. With Glastonbury taking a break this year, Latitude 2018 might just be the alternative you’re looking for.
So if the fomo is real, here is everything you need to know about this year’s festival, from tickets and prices to the logistics of getting there.
The festival will be taking place from Thursday 12 – Sunday 15 July this year.
Who’s headlining Latitude 2018?
The Killers, Solange and Alt-J. The eclectic lineup also includes the artists The Vaccines, Wolf Alice, Jon Hopkins, Benjamin Clementine and Jessie Ware, and the comedians Bridget Christie, Harry Hill, Tim Key and James Acaster.
Where is Latitude Festival?
The festival is at Henham Park in Suffolk.
How can I get tickets?
Weekend tickets are available now on the Ticketmaster website. Day tickets will be available from Wednesday 14 February at midday.
Standard weekend camping costs £197.50 plus a booking fee of £8.00.
Can I pay by instalments?
It is possible to pay for your ticket in instalments – just select to pay with the ‘Layaway plan’ after putting a full-price ticket in your cart and filling out the shipping details. This will mean you’re only charged for the first instalment at the checkout.
