Solas at Latitude

Solas is the Irish word for light and at Latitude, light is the beacon and guide within this beguiling, enchanted area. Solas is a pulsating heartbeat in a woodland escape, a sanctuary space nestled among the dappled light of native conifers. By day a musical gathering awaits, evolving with the dwindling light into a nocturnal wonderland where mysterious happenings and melodic music create an illuminated reverie; the forest glades transform into an alluring, immersive environment featuring slow motion visuals and ambient soundscapes.

Taking place in Southwold’s Henham Park from July 13th – 16th, whether for healing, yoga, relaxation or a multitude of eclectic art installations, Solas is the warming hearth of Latitude and invites you to slow down and engage with your surroundings in this transfixing environment.

The Solas Stage is an intimate venue which plays host to some of the best emerging UK and Irish talent across the musical spectrum. This year sees a line up that includes genre-straddling MC Afrikan Boy, funk-pop beach bums Parcels, folk storyteller Westerman, production wizards Blue Lab Beats, Dublin singer-songwriter Ailbhe Reddy, poptronic amalgam Talos, psych-dub maelstrom Pangani, Irish troubadour David Keenan, indie-house duo Le Boom and acoustic dreamers Into the Ark. Nile Rodgers’ favourite Brian Deady, renowned producer and songwriter Willy Mason, multi-instrumentalist wunderkind Leo Stannard, the critically revered Seamus Fogarty, experimental pop trio White Kite and Irish sensualists Ships also join the Solas bill. Dutch indie-pop dreamers Klangstof, the epic, intimate alt-rock of Brooke Bentham, Sweden’s shimmering Geowulf, dancefloor stomper Andrew Kearney, restlessly inventive Danish quintet Lowly, the fingerstyle acoustica of John Smith and the sprawling 9-piece funk-soul of TooFools round off the impressive line up of up and coming acts.
