[wide][/wide]With Glastonbury taking a year off, the time is ripe for one of the other major festivals to stake a claim to be the “place to be” in 2012. Latitude has certainly stepped-up to the plate. Whilst the festival boasts impressive headliners in the shape of Bon Iver, Paul Weller and Elbow, it is the shear strength in depth and quality of the supporting cast which raises Latitude head and shoulders above the competition. Some of the impressive bands playing over the weekend include:
Bat For Lashes
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Lianne La Havas
I Break Horses
The sheer depth is staggering. Add to this an impressive comedy line-up (Tim Minchin, Josie Long, Greg Davies, Phil Jupitus etc), theatre, poetry, literature and so many more things for people of all ages to do.
Held over the weekend of 13th-15th July in Southwold down in Suffolk, it’s a journey well worth making.
