Stop feeling sorry for yourself because you drank to much the day before. Man up and crack open another can. The last thing you want is to ruin your festival experience because you fall ill. So drink plenty of water in-between to stay hydrated, keeping that hangover at bay. Another lil tip: eat salty snacks to replace the salts in your body, this will also encourage you to hydrate preventing dehydration. Now enough of the drink awareness.
Saturday by far is the best and strongest day musically.

James Blake is no stranger to Latitude. I only caught the end of Blake’s set back in 2013 before his Barclaycard Mercury Prize win with ‘Overgrown.’ “It’s fractured, distracted soul music for the digital generation,” is how the Guardian describe Blake. What makes him so intriguing is his poetic thought provoking electronica. It is more than just music! See James Blake at the Obelisk Arena and absorb his melancholia.
With their debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ Wolf Alice now have ample material to deliver a killer set. Hit track ‘Bros’ oozes nostalgia with a happy go lucky vibe that won’t be out of place at this years festival. They never disappoint live and there will be so much energy it will be hard to contain. Although Wolf Alice do not dub themselves as a grunge band, it is when performing live that this flare becomes more evident, so don’t be afraid to get swept into a circle pit.
Latitude recently announced Blossoms to the line up, If I wasn’t excited enough I certainly am now. If Tame Impala are a bit to psychedelic for you but you love Miles Kane and Arctic Monkeys, Blossoms are the band you’ve been waiting for. You will be surprised by these newcomers and the maturity in their sound. You would think they have been doing this for years. Blossoms are one of the acts I’m most looking forward to over the weekend.
Who will you be seeing Saturday?
