Now winter has well and truly arrived we’ve been thinking back to those long summer nights at Latitude 2019.
When the sun went down on Henham Park, the music and laughter continued through the night. We danced to DJs in the woods until dawn, had the last laugh in the Cabaret Theatre and made many new friends.
Take a wistful look back with us and check out the 6 Times Late Night Latitude Amazed Us.
1. celebrating the Purple One
The now infamous celebration of all things Prince, hosted by comedian Marcus Brigstocke, Princefest, make a spectacular on the Thursday night. We all went crazy in the The SpeakEasy to belt out the likes of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ and ‘Kiss’. And, watched in awe as the braver ones of us took to the stage to lip-sync and strut along to a Prince classic.
2. Time travelling to the 80s
On Friday we headed into a time warp with Mikey Snooze who sent us speeding back to the 80’s. Lycra clad aerobics dancers, looking like they’d stepped straight out of Fame, lined the stage as we all danced the night away to classic retro bangers like ‘Club Tropicana’ and ‘I’m So Excited’.

3. Chilling out in SOlas
SOLAS late at night at Latitude 2019 was a surreal and truly magical experience . Hidden in the woods amidst a swirl of multi-coloured lights, it was an idyllic spot to unwind and relax with friends. And, for those of us who wanted to keep the party going there were sublime DJ sets from the likes of Teleman, EMBRZ, and 3D.
4. Indulging our Guilty Pleasures
If a night filled with singalongs to the most iconic pop tunes of the last few decades sounds like your idea of heaven then Guilty Pleasures had you covered. Friday night in the Comedy Arena was filled with more cheese than Anna Mann’s Cheese & Sex Party as London’s biggest pop night blasted out the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys and S Club 7.
5. Meeting Mr Blobby
The fantastic comedy and theatre acts in the Cabaret Theatre kept us entertained til the wee hours. Acts like Amusical and Mat Ewins had sides splitting during the day. But, at night the likes of Soho Theatre and Duckie had us howling at the weird, wonderful and frankly bizarre. And, who could forget Mr Blobby’s memorable turn with the Duckie crew. Simply fabulous.
6. Feeling the beats with Joy orbison
Cult house DJ Joy Orbison took over the Sunrise Arena on Saturday night and gave us a euphoric end to a day of out of this world music. His pulsing ambient beats gave us lasting Latitude memory as we all raised our hands high to the Henham Park night sky.
