It’s almost a week until Latitude 2015, who this year are celebrating their 10th anniversary.
I feel like I’ve been planning this weekend since The Black Keys walked of stage last year at the end of a killer set. This will be the third year I am returning to the utopia that descends upon Henham Park and I simply cannot contain my excitement.
For those unfamiliar with the Suffolk based festival, you are missing out! They showcase a multitude of arts, have rainbow coloured sheep and not to mention their loos are pretty damn clean!
There is a beauty to Latitude which cannot be explained and can only be experienced.
With Latitude offering so much you can’t detail your day down to a precise schedule. A vague outline is needed ready to float between stages, catching your favourite acts and glimpses of other surprise talents as you drift from tent to tent. You can even take a dip in the lake or float on a gondola, this nirvana is all yours.
This year the Obelisk Arena will house headline acts: Alt-j, Portishead and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Alt-J are no strangers to Latitude, they have climbed the bill from their Lake Stage slot in 2012, jumping to headlining the BBC Radio 6 Stage in 2013. Now lets see how this talented trio handle the Obelisk on the opening night of the festival.
Portishead top the bill on Saturday night filling the veteran slot over the weekend and Latitude goers may expect some new material. With over 20 years of experience behind them expect a stellar showing from these Latitude Festival first-timers.
Finally Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will end the festivities on the Sunday evening. Can we expect to hear ‘Champagne Supernova’ or ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger?’ It will be an night to remember either way with some classic rock n’ roll among favourites from this years ‘Chasing Yesterday’ and from the self titled debut leaving us ‘In The Heat of The Moment.’
