Hello and welcome to Podpads at Latitude 2015!
It's finally that time of year again and with the weather set to be good we can't wait and are sure you can't either. Here is some important information to help you enjoy your Podpadding experience as much as possible. We have provided this information to make your stay with Podpads as comfortable as possible, please read it all be departing.
The Podpads Reception will be ready for when the festival opens at 2pm Thursday 16th July. Podpads check-out is 10am Monday 20th July at the latest.
Please click HERE for a map of the festival site. Podpads will be set up in the PINK MOON CAMPING field which is shown on the map and will be sign posted from the car parks.
We would recommend printing off a copy of the map and highlighting the Pink Moon Camping field to bring with you. This will enable the stewards to direct you to the correct field.
Latitude Festival takes place in Henham Park in Suffolk.
Please do not use your sat nav systems as there are different routings into the site depending upon which direction you are approaching from. On your approach into the site, please see the temporary road signs for directions. You have a choice of two car parks depending on your preference.
The Pink Parking Plus ticket is OPTIONAL. If you do not wish to purchase one or are arriving outside the hours below you will need to park in the regular car parks. Those of you parking in General Parking need to follow the directions from the public highway for weekend ticket holders, such as Red Gate 3. If you haven't booked guest parking once onsite, make your way to the double campsite gates at Tuttle's Wood and once inside the campsites walk through Hollow Tree Way and our field will be on the left as you enter the village and is marked on the map as Pink Moon Camping.
