The 2018 Clashfinder will give you a guide: https://clashfinder.com/s/latitude2018/

I started a 2019 one using the 2018 times for the hell of it, but it’s only really useful for the top two stages where the running order has actually been announced. Fulfils the purpose of plotting schedule of those two stages though, hopefully.

The times have roughly been the same for as long as I've been going so I don't think they'll change it too radically this year apart from the Saturday night, they're usually announced 2-3 weeks beforehand so hopefully it'll be announced soon

Doors open at Henham two weeks today so we must, surely, have an announcement today? Even if it's just the start of the countdown to the stage times reveal. I'll be incredibly disappointed if there's no decent announcement in the next 24 hours.

With a fortnight to go, glorious weather and half the country having watched Glastonbury at the weekend they should be hammering social media on a daily basis now, and not with bland 'two weeks to go until we're back at Henham' posts.

Get us excited Latitude!!

Why not:

- announce you've got a special guest making an appearance over the weekend (we know you have!)

- tell us what we can do on the Thursday evening, what acts can we see, where and what time?

- let us know how the timings will work for the Stereophonics / Underworld Saturday evening set-up

- focus on some of the acts playing Latitude that were at Glastonbury - give a link to their sets on iPlayer

- get some on-site photos up. It's a glorious day at Henham (according to BBC weather) so let's see it!

- run a prize draw for some side-of-stage / backstage passes that gets us all 'liking' and 'sharing' on social media

Just a thought!

Im calling for stage times to be announced tomorrow and then they'll confirm there being a surprise set then too like with Liam last year, I regularly plan out the weekend so I know the times out and get annoyed when they don't, as for example I'm trying to work out if I can see any of George Ezra or Slaves as I plan to see more of Primal Scream and Lana. 

They've promoted a few acts that were at Glastonbury which is good but I agree they're doing very little hyping up which is normally what they do in the fortnight leading up to the festival

May or may not have yelped with excitement at Charlie Brooker.... 

If my memory serves me correctly they did an announcement similar to this last year announcing Richard Ayoade and announced the stage times the next day so there's every chance it'll all come out tomorrow

In fairness, although there's little there to interest me, that's not a bad little announcement so close to the festival. I'm sure Charlie Brooker and Russell Tovey will attract some attention and Princefest was apparently a bit of a hoot last year.

Certainly some notable names who I'm sure will be popular, especially with the popularity of shows like Black Mirror. 

I seem to remember stumbling across the inaugural Princefest in 2016 on the Saturday night in which none of the headliners interested me and (baring in mind I'm hardly a big Prince fan) was one of the best things I've ever been to ūüėā

We've got a week to go and still not everything is complete and there aren't any stage times, it's feeling a little tedious now for me

On the other unofficial Latitude forum one of the members spoke to someone from FR about five weeks ago and was told they'd be releasing something every Thursday up to the festival start. They've pretty much stuck to that so can near enough 'guarantee' we'll get something tomorrow.

What that something will be is a different matter entirely.

No they've almost always released set times at least a week prior to the festival other than secret set times and so on but I hope with tomorrow officially marking a week till the site opens it will then

No, used to start dropping the stage times the Monday before the festival doing a stage a day, one year they hadn't finished releasing them by the Thursday morning

If you've seen the map set times will feel less of a problem, the family camping has taken nearly the whole campsites this year, looks like screaming kids everywhere will be more of an issue, no I'm not the Grinch but balance is key...

The map is now available on the Latitude app if anyone doesn’t know.

 

Ive only got a day ticket and starting to get FOMO, could get weekend ticket but would mostly be on my own, anyone else in same position?

Frank Turner playing secret set in the woods on the Thursday evening seems to be a strong rumour at the moment. Could be memorable if true.

And with that, Latitude 2019 is complete :)

By the looks of it no secret sets this year unless they're late night, now we await the set times
