The Latitude Festival
Latitude Festival
is an annual music festival that takes place in Henham Park, near Southwold, Suffolk, England. It was first held in July 2006. Latitude is said to be more similar to continental European festivals; as well as a comprehensive bill of musicians, bands and artists across four stages - the Obelisk Arena, the BBC Radio 6 Music Stage, the i Arena, and the Lake Stage - the festival comprises elements of theatre, art, comedy, cabaret, poetry, politics, dance and literature. The festival is run by Festival Republic
Festival Republic
(formerly the Mean Fiddler Group), which also runs the Reading and Leeds festivals and up until 2013 was contracted to run Glastonbury Festival.

Security at Latitude 2010[edit] There was a reported gang rape on the first night of the festival which resulted in a heavy police presence for the remainder of the festival, including posters and flyers being handed out.[3] Crystal Castles criticised the rapists during their performance on the Main Stage calling the perpetrators "disgusting". A second rape was reported to have occurred on the second night though it attracted much less publicity than the first.[4] Women were advised against going anywhere on site unaccompanied.
