Organisers confirm that Latitude Festival WILL Go Ahead.

 

 

Latitude Festival will take place next month, organisers said, with the industry ‘all guns blazing’ from ‘Freedom Day.

The rave will take place in Henham Park, Suffolk, from Friday July 23 to Sunday July 25 and will feature performances by Kaiser Chiefs, Rudimental, and Rick Astley.

Melvin Benn, managing director of promoter Festival Republic, said he ‘sees no reason’ why the much-anticipated weekend could not proceed as scheduled following the government’s decision to delay lifting lockdown restrictions.

Mr Benn told Radio 4’s Today Programme that he’s ‘very certain’ that Latitude will go ahead, adding: ‘I can see no reason why we shouldn’t be planning to go ahead from the 19th onward.’ He said: ‘It’s certainly our industry’s view that we are all guns blazing from the 19th onward and we are now of the view that we need to be told not to go ahead as opposed to where we were, waiting to be told that we could go ahead. It is our view that the Prime Minister has told us we can go ahead now.’
