This year's Latitude Festival will see Alt J, Portishead, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, James Blake, Caribou and Wild Beasts heading up the main stage.

We need little convincing to head to the party come this July and can't wait to spend the weekend dancing in the magic fields!

This festival proudly says that its 'not all about the music', featuring poetry, theatre, talks and more.

So we've taken a look at all the weird and wonderful things happening at this years event, that you might not have heard about.

Here are six awesome Latitude secrets that you might not know about just yet...


The theme of this year's 10th birthday festival is For Richer, For Poorer, For Better, For Worse.

This theme is less to do with wedding vows however and more to do with our everyday life.

“Whether it’s clicking ‘yes’ to Google’s terms of service, saying ‘I do’ in a marriage ceremony, or putting an X in a political party’s box at the general election, the agreements we make affect the lives of everyone around us" explains the fests arts programmer.

We love the idea of a wider theme for the whole festival to explore, with Forest Fringe, Theatre Uncut, The Roundhouse and Clean Break all giving their take on the theme over the weekend.

Let us know what you think it means!


The newest addition to the weekend. Solus is being called a 'oasis of imagination.'

Across the famous lake, disappear into a hand-picked selection of installations and holistic areas.

Expert therapists will soothe the mind and body with massages, yoga, treatments and workshops to ease and appease while indulgence meets decadence in bubbling hot-tubs and seaweed baths.

We don't know about you, but we think this sounds like the most luxurious festival treat ever!


We are long time lovers of Other Voices and the events they hold (check out their recent work with Hozier)

Therefore, we could not be more stoked that the crew are joining up with Latitude this year to bring their unique musical spirit to the magical forest.

We don't know exactly what Other Voices have in store for us this summer, but we bet its gonna be incredible!


Latitude is well known for its awesome comedy tent and from this line up you can see why!

We love the amount of our favourite funny ladies featuring over the weekend, from Sarah Pascoe to Nina Conti and Katherine Ryan.

Latitude veteran Josh Widdicombe blew everyone away with his set at the 2012 fest so we cant wait to see what he has in store for us this time!


While there's been nothing released by the festival on this particular point, but as Latitude lovers ourselves, we wanted to give you a heads up-

If you go into the woods after're in for a big old party.

Late night forest raves, reggae parties and secret performances. Allow yourself to fall into the woods and who knows what you might come across.

All you have to do is find the party within the trees...


How could we not mention Latitude most famous guests!

It wouldn't be a Latitude weekend without seeing the famous neon sheep chilling out across the lake, soaking up some rays and munching on some grass.

Even the farmyard animals can't help but get into festival spirit!
