Latitude Festival 2013
The eighth edition of Latitude was once again an unforgettable weekend. Not only jam packed with musical talent it offered a truly inspirational arts programme.
The new stage, The Alcove was a huge hit and showcased new, unsigned bands. BBC Radio 6 Music returned to broadcast the festival and we explored the theme across the Arts Arenas with ‘Neuroscience vs. Sexuality: What Defines Me?’.
Comedy heroes Sean Lock, Dylan Moran, Daniel Kitson, Tim Key, Seann Walsh, Mark Watson, Russell Kane packed out the Comedy Arena every day, making it irresistible to walk past without stopping.
“Music, movies, comedy, literature… there’s something for everyone at the best fest of the summer, with the warmest vibe.” Total Film
“Latitude remains the queen of arts festivals.” Independent
“Latitude has found a sweet spot that keeps new music-delvers, the heritage rock crowd and curious-minded broadsheet readers all happy. Music is the main event, but this festival is all about the other stuff – comedy, poetry, books and political debate.” Q
This was the year that everyone rocked 3D glasses, day and night.
