If you’re a night owl, there’s plenty to see and do at Latitude when the sun goes down.

From musical acts, to DJs and late night comedy there’s something to keep you entertained until the early hours of the morning.

Jack Garratt

Jack Garratt is no stranger to Latitude Festival. He first appeared on the iArena Stage  back in 2015, and this year he returns for a special late-night set on the BBC Music Stage.

He’ll be bringing with him his unique falsetto voice and drum beats infused with synth and electric guitar.

Late Night at the Sunrise Arena

If you’re looking to dance the night away, head down to the Sunrise Arena nestled in the Latitude woods. Here, the party carries on until the sun comes up again. This year, make sure you catch sets from Joe Goddard of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears. His thirst for experimentation and a love of left-of-centre pop music has seen him remix the likes of New Order, Kraftwerk, Disclosure, Jessie Ware and more.

Keeping the energy going with their synths and sequencers are James Ford and Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco. Over the years Jas and James have accumulated mountains of incredible vintage synthesisers and other general sound-making boxes.

Don’t miss them and their genius analogue concoctions.

Spinning the very best urban tunes, Trevor Nelson will keep the bassline pumping late into the night.

Trevor’s no stranger to compiling the best tracks to get people moving, after all, he’s released a collection of compilation albums which have gone platinum…

If you want to get in the mood before you head to Latitude Trevor currently broadcasts on Radio 2 every Saturday from 8pm-10pm.

Dave Seaman and Danny Howells last joined forces in July to devastating effect, and now they’ve chucked in Darren Emerson to the mix. This hat-trick of pioneers will be at Latitude to launch their new concept, ‘3D’.

Think classy sounds multiplied and classy dance floor atmosphere intensified.

Expect to hear house, progressive, techno and all that’s in between.

Late night on the ​Lake Stage

Latitude has got late night treats all weekend on the Lake Stage.

Friday sees Huw Stevens and Mikey Snooze spinning an infectious mix of pop, r ‘n’ b, funk, Motown, indie, electronic and all the other fun bangers that’ll keep you dancing until the early hours.

DJ duo GRLTLK bring their unique set blending pop, indie, disco, rock and more on Saturday, while Sunday sees Gareth Potter returning to Latitude’s Lake Stage for the sixth time.

His Sunday night party is the perfect way to finish off your festival experience in style.


Over in the Comedy arena the belly laughs keep on coming until the morning, too.

If you’re a night owl, make sure you take a stroll and relive some of your deepest and darkest favourite songs with Guilty Pleasures. They’ll be spinning the biggest, boldest, brashest songs complete with bedazzling dancers, live bands and cabaret performers.

Also steering the party from behind two turntables is Hot Dub Time Machine, an audio-visual feast for your eyes, ears and booty, with each song accompanied by videos of the band and of the era. Prepare to hear the very best music from the past 60 years presented in a fresh, fun and innovative way.

If you’re looking for more songs to sing at the top of your lungs, Buttoned Down Disco bring the biggest indie dance party to the Comedy arena on Saturday from 1am until 3am. Club founder, DJ Christian Laing will be spinning a two-hour set mashing up dance floor kicking indie/electro/pop/ remixes to keep you dancing until you drop.

The Cabaret Theatre

Taking over The Cabaret Theatre late night is London’s most vibrant venue for new theatre, comedy and cabaret, Soho Theatre.

They’ll be bringing edgy, unique and ground-breaking talent to Southwold this summer who are going to push the boundaries of comedy and cabaret to the most unexpected places.

Music and Film Arena 

Immerse yourself in the zeitgeist-capturing speakeasy where the sounds and styles of the 1920s and 30s are turned on their head and smuggled into the 21st century with White Mink. They bring together the finest DJs, VJs, live bands, dancers, cabaret and burlesque performers for an unforgettable experience.

Sunset on the Bridge

As the day slowly begins to transition into night, take a moment to stop and admire the serene sunset seen from many gorgeous spots in Henham Park.

Whether you watch from the Waterfront Stage by the lake, appreciate the views from up by the Obelisk Arena, or take a seat in any of the park’s many fields, there’s a big, open sky to sit back and see.

Experience Latitude’s late night thrills and hidden treasures this year for yourself. Tickets are on sale now.
