  1. Latitude 2018

    Given that Latitude is a lot smaller you will be parking fairly close to the entrance/wristband exchange. Then, depending on where you camp you won't be far from the entrance once inside either. once you are wrist banded there is no real queue for reentry. i tend to take the tent and a few bits in first and then go back for the rest, queue for the wristband can still be long but you will walk straight back in. Once, when there was a long queue we didn't take anything in initially, joined the queue and got wristbanded then went and got everything as the car was not far at all. Saved all that stop start in the queue with everything.

    Good choice getting there early, we always try (will be our 9th year) and generally it's easy to get two save for two years where there were horrendous traffic issues but they have resolved these as they worked out the problem. Although camping opens about 2pm the arena opens about 5pm. Good to go in and get bearings ad admire the site. There will be a few things going on in the smaller tents. Security wise, for the last two years we have been in family but it was never an issue in general camping, like Glastonbury used to they would stop the odd person to pull over and check. They did this to us once but all we had was 'is there any glass in there?' 'no' and then they let us go, others had to empty bags, obviously look too innocent/middle-class/middle-aged! Last year they were pulling people out of the queue at an early stage and going through there bags BUT as they had lost there place in the queue they were taken to the front so it was actually better to be searched than not. There was one issue last year, they announced on the day before that only bags of a certain size would be allowed in the arena, smaller than virtually any day bag you have known but back-tracked after social media lost it! It's a great festival so hope you have a great time.

    I remember a similar experience at Glastonbury in 2009. Went to see The Gaslight Anthem in the John Peel Tent, Bruce Springsteen came on for a song (they are also from New Jersey). Place went mental.
  4. Latitude 2018

    This sums up my feelings, fell in love with the place in 2010 and been back every year. The only positive of the GOTR nothing on the BBC stage was I found the rather wonderful Lowly in the Solas area and seen them twice since. But there was definitely part of the festival's soul missing compared to other years.

  6. Latitude 2018

    The usually have 7 acts a day on the main stage and 8 a day on the 2nd stage. On the sunrise it is between 9 and 11 a day and the lake 8 a day. The Alcove anywhere between 6 and 10. also some music is in the Film and Music arena, only Nadine Shah so far. If the Solas area is back then that's another 6 to 8 a day as well. Plenty more to come!
  7. Latitude 2018

    Don't FR normally release Latitude line-up a week after R&L? Also, Beautiful Days not releasing line-up until March
  8. Latitude 2018

    Noel Headlined 2015, way too early for a repeat. Given Liam's ego doubt he would want to headline a festival after his brother has!
  9. Latitude 2018

    Suggested to their twitter account 1st week of March and they have come back with 'no, sooner!'.
  10. Latitude 2018

    That's because, in reality the first week of March is not long to go!
  11. Latitude 2018

    She is headlining at EotR but not mentioned as a festival exclusive (unlike VW and Feist) so we could still see her, subbing main stage or headlining the tent
  12. Latitude 2018

    I have given up guessing, only leads to disappointment as all the other festivals start announcing and you realise the acts you had pinned your hopes on can't possibly fit Latitude in. Just have to wait for the beginning of March to come around and hope that Latitude does something left-field like having a band headline who have no new material and letting them curate/spoil (delete as you see fit) a day's line up!
  13. Bands for 2017

    Saw Lowly at Latitude without having heard any of their music, but was avoiding Mumfords. They ended up being one of my highlights, were on the solas stage in the woods so was a great setting too. My only problem is the clash with Vaudou Game who i was looking forward to seeing!
  14. New Site Map

    Just had an email from EotR with info which includes this: Revamped and relocated to brand new area The Outlands, prepare to fully immerse yourself in a Twin Peaks-inspired wonderland at the revitalised Cinema which will play host to a vast and eclectic array of movies and Q&As. The Outlands is also where you’ll find the Library Stage this year, right next to the sw*nky new Cinema, with its usual variety of brilliant authors reading from their work in the mornings, followed by workshops in the afternoon.
  15. 1st EOTR

    We arrived about 4.30pm last year and walked straight in
