Lewis Capaldi wowed the crowds with his stunning vocals on fan favourites like ‘Someone You Loved’ and ‘Hold Me While You Wait’. The Scottish singer-songwriter even surprised us with a cover of Vanessa Carlton’s ‘A Thousand Miles’.
Saturday night saw Foals put on an explosive show in the famed Obelisk Arena. Confetti, streamers, lights, and all the hits – and frontman Yannis Philippakis even leaped down into the crowd to join the fans on the barrier.
Snow Patrol closed the festival on Sunday, and the crowd was treated to huge singalongs to the likes of ‘Chasing Cars’ and ‘Run’. What’s more, they had a special surprise up their sleeve, bringing out none other than Ed Sheeran for a cover of his hit ‘Bad Habits’!
Over on the BBC Sounds stage, Saturday night Groove Armada played their last ever live show to a packed out crowd of revellers. Phoebe Bridgers brought her mesmerising indie-pop to Latitude for the first time on Friday, whilst Fontaines D.C. rocked the house on Sunday night.
It wouldn’t be Latitude without an eclectic line up of arts, family, and late night acts in addition to the music programme.
Russell Howard, Frankie Boyle and Reginald D. Hunter were your Comedy headliners, and all performed to a crowded Comedy Arena. The Waterfront Stage was the place to catch mesmerising dance from the likes of DanceEast and Jose Agudo. The Theatre Arena was packed all weekend, as crowds clamoured to witness stunning circus acts and cutting edge theatre.
Of course, food is always a big part of Latitude, and this year saw our biggest food line up yet. We opened a brand new restaurant, The Guest Chef, where guests had the chance to experience a special menu prepared by celebrity chefs including Gary Lineker and Judi Love.
There was also an amazing line up for children and teenagers, including a very special model-making workshop with Aardman (the creators of Wallace & Gromit). And late night ravers were spoilt for choice as several of our stages stayed open until 3am with DJs and cabaret!
We can’t wait to do it all again next year! Latitude 2023 takes place in Henham Park on 20th-23rd July 2023.
