Longing for Latitude...

Still not got your big festival fix for this year yet? We’ve not been to Latitude before but always heard great things about it. Like all the best festivals it seems to have its own distinctive personality together with a mind, body and soul enhancing cocktail of music, comedy, poetry, literature and theatre. This year the musical bill looks particularly trouser moistening. On top of the headliners (they’ve recently added the divine Rufus W) you’ll find the reanimated Dexys, Lana Del Ray, Thomas Dolby, Alabama Shakes, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Django Django, Zola Jesus, Team Me...each and every single one of ‘em well worth the entry fee alone. The Poetry Arena’s got Benjamin Zephaniah, Scroobius Pip and John Cooper Clarke, over at the Literary Arena Dave Gorman’s no doubt unveiling another off the wall theme for his latest million seller whilst Miles Jupp’ll be his usual laconic self. Mark Thomas continues to give it to da man at The Theatre Arena and the art exhibition includes work from the mistress of the montage Linder Stirling. Blimey. Like the strapline says... “It’s more than just a music festival”.
