Mastodon Latitude Festival 2019 - Phoenix FM

Latitude Festival 2019

The Latitude Festival was back in Suffolk for the 14th year - and we've been to every single one of them!

The festival includes a comprehensive bill of musicians, bands and artists across four main stages - the Obelisk Arena, the BBC Music Arena, the Sunrise Arena and the Lake Stage.

The festival also comprises elements of theatre, art, comedy, cabaret, poetry, politics, dance and literature.

There's a ton of things to go and see at any one time - even with a capacity of 35,000, it never seems that crowded. Only 12% of the festival performers are music acts.

Our festival team - Nick Field, Matt Horton, Paul Golder and Stewart Pink - chatted to many of the performers, which you can see and hear below.
