Many are still waiting for their Latitude tickets to arrive, just days before the event begins.

On July 6 organisers tweeted that 'tickets can arrive up to five-days before the festival'.

Two hours after this was posted, they then said tickets could arrive up to three-days before and advised people to be 'patient'.

Customers are less than impressed with the delay. Andrew Orchard said his daughter was waiting for tickets and described the situation as a 'nightmare'.

Belinda Baxter commented on Facebook saying: 'Think we should all boycott next year... It's really taken the shine off with all this ticket no show. Nice to know you appreciate your customers Latitude, NOT!'

A spokesman for Ticketmaster UK said their final batch of tickets were mailed out last Friday (July 7) and customers who purchased with them should receive their tickets over the next few days.
