Experience the Freedom of Music

To me the word 'latitude' conjures up feelings of dread. It brings back memories of horrific math classes as I tried to work out the longitude of this and the latitude of that. But of course, I was forgetting the other meaning of latitude: freedom.

I much prefer the idea of a freedom festival to a maths festival, which fortunately is what the Latitude Festival is all about. The freedom of expression through music. Now in its eighth year, the festival has an almost endless line-up with over a hundred music artists performing at Henham Park between the 18th-21st July. Top on the list of names are the electronica band from Germany, Kraftwerk, whose synthetic sounds make you feel like you are entering a world of dreams. The American indie group, Modest Mouse will also be battling up against some serious Cat Power, while the psychedelic Bo Ningen will bring a taste of Tokyo to the arena.

As well as music, there will be a Vaudevillian Adventure, poetry readings, and stand up comedy. If you get peckish, there will be plenty of nosh at the bars and camping stoves, and the 'Little Latitude Tuck Shop' close by in the village. Adult tickets are 84.50 for the day or 190.50 for the long weekend; if you have any kids with you, they are considerably cheaper at 6.50.
