And after the show it's the after party.

Longitude is different to festivals such as Electric Picnic and Body and Soul, in that there's no camping allowed. So spirited attendees can't party all night on site but that doesn't mean the celebrations need to stop as soon as the lights come on.

There are plenty of late-night events for every stripe of party animal, you just need to know where to find it.
