The Latitude Festival 2011 in held in Southwold, Suffolk survived torrential weather to notch up as a success on the festival calendar
Visitors to the festival, famous for hosting a multitude of the arts from music to comedy and poetry, couldn’t have been too positive about the ominous weather report before the weekend began. And it was no Michael Fish malfunction either as the weekend brought buckets, baths and skips full of rain down on to the festival go-ers.
Some unlucky campers came back from a cider or six to find their tents had moved on due to the unsteady ground, yet despite these weather related mishaps thousands of fans were treated to some stellar performances by the many acts across the Latitude Festival.
An eclectic mix of musicians brought together crowds of all types, with the likes of Paloma Faith delivering her eccentric appearance and fantastic voice with aplomb along with Adam Ant adding a dose of nostalgia to visitors battling the rain.
Tents were also packed for Q and A sessions with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, along with a stand up performance by Iranian comedian Omid Djalili.
Overall the festival went down a treat, with many already looking to next years festival, after of course getting through the string of this years upcoming events. Yet as Latitude moves on Southwold looks forward to a hopefully sunnier, rest of the summer.
Until next year Latituders!
