Latitude Festival 2020: Liam Gallagher, HAIM, lineup, tickets and more
Latitude Festival 2020 is a family friendly UK festival that takes place in Henham Park, Suffolk, from 16 to 19 June.
Since 2006, this has been where fantasy meets festival. Latitude Festival annually takes place in Suffolk’s gorgeous Henham Park, surrounded by forests and multi-coloured mutton. (Yes, you read that correctly. No, you don’t need to wait for the party favours to kick in — the sheep are dyed.)
Naturally, the music is also mind-blowing. The Latitude Festival 2020 lineup includes musicians from around the UK and the world, with this year’s headliners including HAIM, Liam Gallagher and The Chemical Brothers as well as a special performance from Northern Irish-Scottish rockers Snow Patrol.
Snow Patrol was due to headline Latitude Festival 2019, but had to pull out at the last minute. Fortunately, they were able to return this year and can celebrate their new album, Reworked, as well as their 25th anniversary. iNews quotes Snow Patrol as saying, “Snow Patrol are thrilled to perform our Reworked set (featuring 14 musicians no less) as special guests.”
"Having played the first ever Latitude in 2006 we were gutted that injury forced us to cancel our headline slot last year. Thank you Latitude for giving us another chance to make it up.”
While adults may be excited for Snow Patrol, there’s also plenty for little ones to dream big about. Latitude is a family friendly festival, with dedicated areas and activities for kids and teens.
This is also on the best UK festivals of 2020 for lovers of comedy, dance, the arts and podcasts. Comedian Bill Bailey will be the headlining funnyman at the festival, joined by the likes of former “Never Mind The Buzzcocks” presenter Simon Amstell and American Rich Hall.
