Latitude has confirmed it will welcome a full capacity audience onsite this year. 

Returning to the grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk, on July 22-25, headliners include: Wolf Alice, The Chemical Brothers, Bastille, Bombay Bicycle Club, Bill Bailey, Katherine Ryan, Jo Brand Reginald D Hunter and Simon Amstell. 

Festival Director Melvin Bennof said everyone will be welcome to attend as long as they have a negative lateral flow test or proof of two vaccinations.

“After many months without live music and arts, we are ecstatic to return with a full capacity festival. Restarting festivals is crucially important to the wellbeing of everyone in society and we hope that Latitude will be the first of many festivals to take place this summer.” 

The festival will feature in the latest phase of the British government's event research programme (ERP).

Ticket holders will be asked for either proof of a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours of arrival at the festival, or proof of full vaccination, the second dose having been received at least 14 days prior to the first day of attending the festival.
