How much cash are you willing to splash on festival season this year?
Latitude festival, which takes place at Henham Park, near Southwold from July 13-15, offered their ‘Latitude Luxury’ range for the first time last year and now it’s making a second appearance for 2018.
The range features a Summer Lodge for two, which costs £3,320, not including price of entry - which starts at £213.30 for a weekend ticket.
For this amount you get a double bed, lockable door, two deck chairs, decorative rug and a clothes rail with three hangers per person.
Other luxury items include the loft for two, which costs £1,396.00 and the tipi for two priced at £1,760.
Almost all of the pricey options have sold out online, but some fans of the music event are horrified by the prices.
Individuals shared their concerns on Twitter where one posted: “I’ll know I have enough money when I think it’s OK to spend over £3k to sleep in a shed for the weekend.”
Another commented: “You can make one for yourself for less than £3000”.
Latitude’s website says it has created this accommodation for “the fussiest of campers” making the festival experience “as relaxing and convenient as possible”.
