I really want to go to this one year. No matter how underwhelming the initial announcement for this ever is, the idea that you can’t find something to do across the site (once the whole bill is announced) is unthinkable.
I’ve been to five of these (2010, 2011, 2013, 2016, 2018 - the last two with at least one child in tow) and have always been somewhat overwhelmed by the volume of quality stuff on - could happily spend the entire festival in the comedy/theatre/literary arenas with no bands at all and be very happy Also, it’s in such a beautiful setting that just wandering the various parts of the site is a joy in itself…
Saturday sounds like it might be Ben Folds, Underworld and Everything Everything at the same time. If I was going to this (am at Bluedot) that would hurt!
I’m assuming (hoping) that Everything Everything are going to be on at the same time as Snow Patrol with Underworld doing a late spot on the main stage.
If I wasn’t at Latitude I would deffo be at Blue Dot - that line up and setting looks pretty special
I bought a Saturday day ticket because Kraftwerk. If it hadn’t been for that, I’d be at Latitude for sure. Have still never been.
Latitude is my favourite festival for sure - it’s about so much more than just the bands
That said, Blue Dot is walking distance from my mate’s house
More announcements across all stages…
The TV hates Katherin Ryan, so will definitely be checking her out. Also nice to see new top poet dude Simon Armitage get a run out
