Latitude is a gorgeous & very friendly festival just outside of Southwold. It's not just great music, but literature, poetry, theatre, ballet, dance, opera.....
Sadly we missed Nigel Kennedy - how mad would that have been! But we did get the second round of the legend that is Mr Tom Jones!!! Awesome.
Other delights were seeing Florence & the Machine, the XX were amazing & haunting, I love Vampire Weekend... the list goes on.
Before I totally bore you to sleep I should mention other things like the Keep & Share learn to knit stall. It looked incredible, good attention to detail. I would love to see this at all village fetes, such a great idea.
The tent pegs were even embellished in big balls of wool.
Rodrigo Y Gabriela were incredible as ever. I smugly had seen them before & insisted lots of my friends see them. They were blown away much to my delight! They pretty much make astounding music with two guitars & lots of talent.
Worth checking out.
Sadly couldn't fit in everything I wanted to see. I was very much up for checking out the La De Dahs 1940's styled singers singing many new songs in a classic style. Can't believe I missed them twice boo hoo.
