Latitude 2009 Information
About Latitude 2009
After a triumphant hat trick of events Latitude returns to the idyllic surroundings of Henham Park in Suffolk for three more
days of creative immersion with music, art, comedy, literature, theatre, film and poetry ready to take your breath away.
Whether it's the ethereal bands like past performers Sigur Ros or Elbow enrapturing fans, surprise guests in the woods keeping handfuls of festival-goers in awe or a poet's turn of phrase making a punter chortle, Latitude is a rich tapestry of joyous art for all ages.
The festival boasts around fifteen arenas that will enlighten, question, amuse and bemuse the most cultured festival-goer. Latitude even has a children's arena that is as diverse as anything for adults. It's a weekend away where fans can rediscover themselves.
With a green conscience the festival has composting toilets, solar showers and teamed up with Ecover who will be providing eco-friendly shower gel. There are also plenty of bars and eateries to keep you full over the weekend as well as bespoke camping available to hire.
AGreenerFestival say this about the festival: Latitude has set itself out to be at the forefront of sustainability and organisers Festival Republic have introduced some marvellous initiatives including a fuel-cell powered stage. 'Campers Waste Kits' are given out to the audience so they can sort waste for composting and recycling and the now much loved souvenir beer cups which clearly reduce plastic and glass waste have been instrumental in making Latitude green, clean and beautiful. At ten bags of compost per bag of landfill coming out of the arena, the audience really took to composting their food plates and leftovers.
