And now there is a chance to see how Latitude festival performs, as it has been nominated for a series of awards recognising its nationwide appeal.

The event, at Henham Park near Southwold, has been shortlisted for Line-Up Of The Year, Best Family Festival, Best Toilets and Best Medium-Sized Festival at the UK Festival Awards, which are held on Monday, December 1.

It won Line-Up Of The Year last year and Best Family Festival the year before.

Latitude festival organiser Melvin Benn said: “I’m delighted that Latitude has been nominated yet again for the UK Festival Awards.

“The team and I have put a huge amount of effort into making the festival the best it can possibly be, and it’s great to have this recognised with nominations in several categories.

“This was a brilliant year for Latitude and we’re already working on ways to make next year’s festival even better.”

The event will celebrate its 10th birthday next year. It will be held between July 16 and 19.
