Late-Night Sheeran Show Delights Latitude Festival Fans

Ed Sheeran has brought Latitude to a standstill with a surprise late-night show.

After indie rockers alt-J wowed the main stage, revellers streamed to a far-flung corner of the festival.

Deep in the woods of Henham Park, Southwold, the singer-songwriter delighted the lucky fans who packed into the 3,000-capacity show, Sheeran's smallest gig for a long time. One onlooker described it as "unbelievable". Another, Olly Gregson, 18, from Sussex, said he heard rumours the pop star might make an appearance.

The delighted fan said after the show: "it was an amazing show, really intimate. Everyone was dancing and singing along. That's the best time I've ever seen him, just because it was so small. You see him in stadiums, arenas and stuff, but it's obviously amazing, the intimacy, so close to it."

Earlier in the day alt-J drew the biggest main stage crowd for a hits-packed set. The balmy weather meant the festival-goers enjoyed lake swimming and ensured acts on the outdoor stages drew big crowds.
