BBC Radio 3 returns to Latitude Festival

Late Junction, BBC Radio 3’s late-night music show, will once again curate a stage in the Lavish Lounge of Latitude Festival this year.

Presenter DJ Max Reinhardt will host the gig along with various guests.

The station tells us performance highlights including a rare solo set from Stereolab lead-singer, Laetitia Sadier, contemporary classical violinist Aisha Orazbayeva, the hi-energy sound of Congolese soukous and rap from Baloji, and rising star of English folk song, Sam Lee with his six-piece band.

The Radio 3 stage will be bigger than last year and will feature more hand-picked performances from artists spanning jazz, folk, contemporary classical and even the sounds of coffee preparation made into music. Highlights from the stage will be broadcast in Late Junction on BBC Radio 3 Tuesday 17th – Thursday 19th July.

For the first time, Late Junction will also host DJs providing genre-bending sets. On Friday night, composer and producer Mira Calix returns to DJ, on Saturday night Late Junction presenter Nick Luscombe takes to the decks and on Sunday night Ed Handley from celebrated duo, Plaid, takes centre stage.

Tony Cheevers, Editor of Late Junction, said: “BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction is delighted to be back in the woods again, with a bigger stage and an even more diverse line-up, showcasing incredible talent both new and established to bring a distinctive mix of sounds to the festival.”
