The Film & Music Arena will be hosting the first two episodes of the second series of Yonderland​, the hit TV show. This will be followed by a Q&A with creators of the show, Laurence Rickard, Ben Willbond and Jim Howick.

What would a surrealist festival look like? Come and make something weird and wonderful in Minecraft before having a drink and a dance to live DJ sets from as Latitude's virtual doppelganger emerges on screen as part of Tate Worlds.

Back in 2006 on a stormy December night, Amy Winehouse flew to the remote, south western corner of Ireland to perform for Other Voices. Amy Winehouse's Other Voices performance has been named by The London Times as the 17th best gig of all time, in a list of the top 25 concerts ever compiled. Amy's visit, during Other Voices 5, is the subject of the documentary Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle.
