Around Noise of Art’s performance in the Film and Music tent on Friday 13 July, The Psychedelic Curiosity Show will create a three day festival within a festival, with DJs, costumed performers and bands taking on aspects of the psychedelic steampunk theme.

Connecting contemporary musical styles with the psychedelic movement that transformed popular music in 1967, late Sixties flavours will be brought to Latitude with a totally modern twist – whether it’s via new singer songwriters from Suffolk or bassline innovators from London’s club scene.

Rising folk star Kal Lavelle will be joined by Americana songwriter Antonio Lulic, Noise of Art’s Ben Osborne will introduce hippy funk and cosmic house wig-out sessions. Brighton’s Tiny Dragons will join Suffolk’s Rob Brown to add psych-rock and swamp blues into the fray, while The Small Town Bullies will show that psychedelic funk doesn’t have to come from New Orleans.

Further live sets will come from East Anglia’s neo progressive answer to Radiohead, Kevin Pearce Band, and a secret chart topping guest. The Artworks will join the soulful folk funk of Jake Morley, followed psyched-out cosmic DJ sets from London bass-line innovator and electronic music guru, Si Begg.

Sunday morning begins, as every Sunday should, with a rousing chorus of Gospel House, while songstress Fiona Bevan will join Peter Hepworth before a closing party set from DJ Ben Osborne and Rupert The Brewer and guests.
