The latest from Latitude Festival and not a mask in sight


estival fans were pictured enjoying the music at Latitude Festival after the heatwave came to an end.

It takes place at Henham Park estate near the Suffolk coast and is part of the Government’s Events Research Programme.

Partygoers descended for the third day on Saturday when Rudimental, Sea Girls, Kawala and Nadia Rose will welcome the stage throughout the evening.

Not a mask was in sight as crowds of people danced day and night at the event, also known for its wild swimming spot, yoga tents and trademark pink sheep.

Many took to wearing bright colours with the return of flower headdresses, sequins and glitter. Some posed in football kits from Italy and England or sported fancy dress as they sought out their favourite bands.

Others donned swimming costumes as they took a dip in the lake in between music performances.

Revellers must be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative Covid test to enter the venue which also offers its own pop-up vaccination clinic.

Tramlines and Standon Calling are also under way this weekend in Sheffield and Hertfordshire respectively.

Royal Blood, Mahalia and Little Simz are among the acts to perform at Tramlines on Saturday.

Meanwhile Standon Calling will see Hot Chip, Sister Sledge and Akala take the stage. The full capacity event is taking place with around 15,000 people in attendance .
