Saul Williams and loads more for Latitude

21 June 2006

The addition of rapping slam-poet Saul Williams perhaps best epitomises the aim of the brand new Latitude festival. Engaging, non-compromising and utterly alternative, read on for a feast of mind-boggling treats...

Shaping up to be one of the most innovative and exciting festivals of the summer, Latitude takes place at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk, from 14-16 July.

Tickets are on sale, priced £95 for the weekend or £40 a day, and are available HERE.

Snow Patrol, Antony & The Johnsons, and Mogwai headline, with The Lemonheads, The Zutons, Patti Smith, Mercury Rev, Jose Gonzalez, Gomez and Stephen Fretwell all previously confirmed. Click here for the full lineup.

But it's the theatre, cabaret, healers, magicians, comedy, book readings, poetry and sideshows - all programmed with an alternative twist - that's really getting us here at VF all excited. More on all that later...

The following bands have just been confirmed for Arenas 1 and 2...

NICKY WIRE, CAPTAIN, WHITE ROSE MOVEMENT, ARCHIE BRONSON OUTFIT, THE LONGCUT, I AM KLOOT, THE COLOUR, CATHERINE FEENY, THE ALIENS, NOISETTES, IAIN ARCHER, BC CAMPLIGHT, PEEPING TOM, CAMILLE, RODERIGO Y GABRIELA, LAVENDER DIAMOND, DAVID FORD, THE MORNING AFTER GIRLS, PAOLO NUTINI, MUMM-RA, GRANDAD BOB, THE PIDGEON DETECTIVES, and SCOTT MATTHEWS.

There's also a new arena just announced, The Lake Stage, which will be hosted by Radio 1 new music champion, Huw Stephens. The lineup is as follows...

GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY, MARISSA NADLER, MCRAFT, FERN HILL, RORY MCVICAR, GEORGE, NALLE, JAKOKOYAK, MR HOPKINSON’S COMPUTER, RICHARD JAMES, SOFT HEARTED SCIENTISTS, LORDS, CATE LE BON, EUROS CHILD, DARREN HAYMAN, THE VOICES, MUGSTAR, JIM, ELDON, ANDREW HOCKNEY, and RADIO LUXEMBORG.

A number of quirky side attractions have also just been announced. The pick of the bunch is The Barefoot Doctor's Travelling Medicine Show. It involves the shoeless doc taking stressed out 9-5ers on a musical healing journey, using a live band that taps into the old chakras and makes you feel all relaxed and chilled out!

On a similar tip, there's a lecture/standup routine called 'Happy', which has the sole purpose of making its audience feel happier than they did before watching it. The likes of Rob Newman and Sean Lock in the Comedy Tent should make that quite a challenge.

Also added is the rather fascinating sounding Dialogue Project. It's basically a work of visual art involving conversations between one man and various subjects, including a Middle East peace negotiator, a factory worker, a self harmer and a professor who sees disease as man's best friend, all bound together somehow. You'll have to see the results for yourself!

Loads more quirky art, strange forest goings on, and interactive activities will be going on at Latitude, with the action going right through the night. Predicted highlights include a live sound score of the cult film classic The Wicker Man as the sun rises, a French electro themed evening, exclusive rockumentaries featuring The Libertines and Kasabian, and the Vox'N'Roll tent where loads of interesting personalities will be giving talks and readings.
