Latitude get permission to run at full capacity in 2021
Great news festival fans: Latitude Festival 2021 is not only going ahead, they’ve obtained permission to be a test event in the Event Research Programme which means they will be at full capacity. Here’s the official statement:
“Dear Latitude friends,
We have been working extremely hard to make sure that Latitude Festival can go ahead safely at full capacity. After much discussion with the Government, I can now officially announce that we WILL be going ahead and that we will be joining the 3rd phase of the Event Research Programme as a test event!
Becoming an ERP event gives us the security of going ahead. Crucially the additional research collected at Latitude will benefit all festivals and live events moving forward. After many months without live music and arts, we are ecstatic to return with a full capacity festival. Restarting festivals is crucially important to the wellbeing of everyone in society and we hope that Latitude will be the first of many festivals to take place this summer!
We are working closely with the ERP experts, scientists and in particular the director of Public Health in Suffolk on the specific conditions of entry that will enable the festival to operate safely and we will publish those details on our website as soon as they are ready to share. One thing we do know is that everyone will be welcome to attend as long as they have a negative lateral flow test OR proof of two vaccinations.
We will continue to keep you updated as soon as we have more information,
