For all those at Latitude who are looking for late night fun and games the i Arena is the place to be this year. On Friday evening revellers can party the night away to the best dancehall sounds, courtesy of popular party crew The Heatwave, who will be bringing a little bit of Notting Hill Carnival to Suffolk. Crowds will be rum drunk and raving with the wickedest performers, scandalous dancers and plenty of banging bashment anthems.
On Saturday night the party continues with a live set from Mancunian Skittles, whose brand of breakstep, garage and electronica has been receiving lots of love from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs and Toddla T. Legendary DJ Shy FX will also be rolling out the tunes, expect a flawless set jam packed full of classic jungle and drum ‘n’ bass cuts, plus everything else in between. Don’t miss out on a party with one of the original pioneers of the scene!
For any Latitude festival goers who don’t ever want the fun to stop, newcomer Tuesday Born is on hand to keep the party alive until the small hours of Monday morning. The 21 year old Londoner will be causing a stir with his fresh and exciting mix of African influenced rhythms and ethereal electronic jams. BBC Radio 1 DJ Mosca will be powering the dance floor with a set drawing on influences far and wide – expect the hottest tracks from the worlds of dancehall, grime, bashment, garage and house. Joining them is George Fitzgerald, who will be hitting the decks on Sunday evening. The London beatsmith and head of the ManMakeMusic imprint is racking up the fans for his distinctive dubstep, techno and house productions and is a formidable DJ to boot. The perfect end to what promises to be an amazing weekend in the i Arena!
Other areas of the festival will also be hosting a selection of the best DJs and electronic acts to keep the crowds entertained. In The Woods have already lined up DJs Goldierocks, Norman Jay and Fat Camp for a party like no other under the cover of the woods. Over on The Lake Stage Friday evening will feature Latitude favourites Huw Stephens and Moshi Moshi DJs, on Saturday Gareth Porter takes to the decks and rounding up the weekend on the Sunday evening will be all-girl DJ group the Vinyl Vendettas spinning the tunes as the sun slips away. Finally if cutting-edge electronic music is your bag, sets from Apparat, Walls, Dub Boy and The Field will all keep you dancing late into the night… see you there!
