Gallery: Snow Patrol and The Zutons play the first-ever Latitude 2006
When the inaugural Latitude was staged in 2006 the likes of Snow Patrol, Paolo Nutini and The Zutons were on the bill.
Latitude, held within the beautiful grounds of the historic Henham Park Estate in Southwold, sought inspiration from the European festivals and introduced a whole new genre of festival to the UK.
It brought together music, art, comedy, film and literature as well as theatre, performing arts and sculpture.
The first festival was organised by Mean Fiddler - the company which also stages some of this country’s leading festivals including those at Glastonbury, Leeds and Reading.
As the first night kicked off, Hektor Rous, whose family have owned the Henham estate for more than 500 years, told our reporter he had been impressed by the work that had been going on.
“These guys are simply magnificent. They have created a magical setting for a festival and with the weather set fair I hope everyone who comes has a really special time.
“There cannot be a better venue for a festival than Henham Park and I am delighted that so many people can come along and enjoy the music and everything else that is happening,” he said.
