I’m supposed to be packing up the flat today for the big move on Friday but I can’t quite bring myself to start as there are way too many books and not enough small boxes… so I thought I’d do a quick Latitude Festival 2014 post.
It started well, I followed the well tested checklist, pre listened to some of the bands and made up the packed lunches for our journey.
Annoyingly epic delays on the roads doubled our journey time and after eight long hours sitting on a coach we finally made it to Suffolk and into the Latitude arena hours after the gates opened. Luckily the Kate Tempest play Hopelessly Devoted was on again on the Friday evening (phew! Stunning theatre).
ULTIMATE HIGHLIGHT, best set of the entire festival (by miles): EMILIE NICOLAS
Oh my life was she amazing.
YOUNG FATHERS (Would have been better had the sound been up to scratch, but I saw them do a Bandstand Busking session last weekend and they were brilliant so I just wanted to flag that they’re super awesome).
I also wanted to thank the Alex from Edinburgh Sofar Sounds for recommending them.
EAVES – As Old as the Grave (This is the only video or sound clip I can find for this song…)
