UK’s Latitude Festival has been canceled
The UK’s Latitude Festival has become the latest major event to be hit by the COVID-19 outbreak as organisers confirmed the cancellation of its 2020 edition yesterday (Monday).

Organisers of the three-day event, which was scheduled to take place between July 16-19, said ticket refunds are being processed and it will return in 2021.

Latitude was due to be headlined by Haim, Liam Gallagher and the Chemical Brothers, with other acts scheduled to appear such as Kate Tempest, Mahalia, Tove Lo and Simon Amstell.

Organisers said in a statement: “We’ve been closely monitoring this unprecedented situation and it’s become clear that it’s just not possible for this year’s festival to go ahead.

“Our heart goes out to the fans, artists, suppliers, performers, volunteers – our entire Latitude family.”
