Latitude 2006 was the year it all began.

In the beautiful grounds of our soon to be home in Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk we welcomed headline sets from Snow Patrol, Anthony and the Johnsons and Mogwai.

Featuring a plethora of musical talent from Snow Patrol, Mogwai and Antony and the Johnsons headlining the Obelisk Arena, the inaugural Latitude Festival played host to The Zutons, The Lemonheads, Patti Smith, Larrikin Love, Soft Hearted Scientists, Field Music, Paolo Nutini and Archie Bronson Outfit across the Music Arenas.


The Arts Arenas were jam-packed with diverse acts from the worlds of cabaret, comedy, film, literature, theatre, poetry, including such luminaries Luke Wright, Inua Ellams, Lemn Sissay, Josie Long, Robin Ince and his book club, Marcus Brigstocke, Sean Lock, Ben Moor, Nabokov, Roger Lloyd Pack and many other top names.
