Latitude kicks off

First day at new Suffolk festival

The first ever Latitude Festival began today (July 14) in Southwold, Suffolk.

Vegas 4 kicked proceedings off in the Obelisk Arena followed by Norwich rockers Cord, whose set included recent single ‘Winter’.

The Sunrise Arena hosted The Noisettes. Their hyperactive singer Shingai captivated the large crowd with their stripped down blues punk, including recent single ’Scratch Your Name’.

Latitude continues tonight with performances from The Lemonheads, The Zutons and headliners Snow Patrol in the Obelisk Arena.

The Aliens and The Organ play the Sunrise Arena. The Pipettes play in the Uncut Arena.
