Uniting alternative worlds of cinematic wonder, musical splendour and visual brilliance, the Music & Film Arena is an exhilarating and intoxicating centre of creativity.

These will be interspersed with musical treats and stunning, transfixing visuals combining together to create a seductive, sensory playground for all ages.

The LateNightTales series was established in 2000 with the idea of letting music stars delve deep into their own private collections to create the ultimate late night mix tape. In the past, Groove Armada, The Flaming Lips, Four Tet, Air and many more have stepped up to produce their own individual take on the concept. Submerse yourself in the musical passions of some of the world’s best artists with the phenomenal LateNightTales which at this year’s Latitude Festival presents:

Turin Brakes who will perform a live acoustic set as well as showcasing the diverse music that has influenced their own musical careers including their two gold-selling albums.

Chris Geddes of Belle & Sebastian will be DJ-ing, spinning tracks that have influenced their eclectic sounds of pure pop, sixties psyche, seventies rock, west coast harmonies, folk balladeering and bossa nova.  Their collection is largely considered to be one of the best in the series – a treasure trove of musical nuggets – so expect a DJ set quite unlike any other.

The B-Music collective will be showcasing their Cross Continental Prog Pop Pilgrimage – a fun-drenched party of drum-heavy ‘second-class-psychedelia’ from the four corners of the planet. Working in some mind-boggling visuals to accompany the musical obscurities from far flung pockets of the world such as Hungary, Turkey, Pakistan and Malaysia. This fuzz-fuelled freak-fest will take you around the world through the powers of sight and sound.

Radio DJ, presenter and all-round music connoisseur Mark Lamarr will be presenting his legendary God’s Jukebox. In accordance with his Saturday late night show on Radio 2 – God’s Jukebox will present the best soul, ska, reggae, country, gospel and rap you never knew you loved.  As well as DJ-ing, Lamarr has especially selected five incredible bands to play the Music & Film Arena one of which is rumoured to hot new band The Asteroid Galaxy Tour.

Writer and documentary film-maker, Jon Ronson will be showing film clips and hosting a Q & A on Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Boxes’ and ‘The Men Who Stare At Goats’. ‘The Men Who Stare At Goats’ has topped the international best seller books around the world and is currently being filmed as a major motion picture starring George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges. Ronson currently writes and presents the twice Sony nominated BBC Radio 4 series, Jon Ronson On….and wrote the popular “Human Zoo” and “Out of the Ordinary” columns for The Guardian, where he still contributes features.

An entertaining and educational new illustrated talk about the problem of intellectual copyright theft in the creative industries. Case studies include Richard DeDomenici’s recent and ongoing disputes with corporations including News International and the BBC. Richard will launch Plagiarismo! in 2009, unless someone else copies the idea first! Richard cites a rich and eclectic variety of case studies from the music, entertainment and art worlds, encompassing The Pussycat Dolls, Apple Computers and Damien Hirst, as well as countless regrettable examples from his own artistic practice.
