'We are looking for acts that can create a set that suits our intimate but perfectly formed stage area. It really suits acoustic and semi-acoustic performances by individuals or small groups.

'I am excited to see the performers chosen but also that everyone who auditions will have the chance to get advice from industry professionals. Over the years it has provided an amazing platform for emerging artists locally. It has been great to see the young performers during and after the opportunity.'

Sharon Reuben of Latitude Festival, added: 'I'm proud that with an area dedicated to teens, Latitude continues to offer opportunities for young artists to develop their talent, and for teen audiences to expand their experiences and explore their own creativity.'

Latitude Festival will take place at Henham Park from July 13-16. Headline acts performing over the weekend include The 1975, Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes.
