A sea of tents, tepees and gazebos of all shapes and sizes have been pitched and pegged as thousands of revellers set up camp at Henham Park for the start of Latitude Festival 2016.
Now in its 11th year, the music and arts showpiece has become a popular fixture on the festival calendar.
Bathed in sunshine, clad in band T-shirts, shorts and shades festival-goers
excitedly came in their droves to prepare for the four day event.
This year will see The National and New Order headline the Obelisk Stage.
