Today sees the start of this year's Latitude Fesitval.
In the music arena, the likes of Paulo Nutini, KT Tunstall and Suede will be performing sets. The comedy section is being headlined by the likes of Omid Djalili, Jason Byrne and Phill Jupitus and in the film and music arena Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon will be doing a Q and A about 'The Trip'.
More names are expected to be added to the line up over the next few weeks.
Some changes are also being made to the arena at the Henham Park estate, as they are making it bigger but keeping the number of people able to get tickets the same.
Founder and Creator of Latitude Festival and Managing Director of Festival Republic ~ Melvin Benn says:
"I am extremely proud of what has been achieved over the past five glorious years of Latitude. We've been listening to our loyal fans and this year, for our sixth edition, we are making some changes to the site which will further enhance everyone's enjoyment of their favourite festival weekend. Latitude truly is 'more than just a music festival' and this year's programme across the full spectrum of arts and music is utterly exceptional. We look forward to welcoming you to explore, discover and enjoy all that it has to offer."
