Again, this was originally published on the now dead 21st Century Music site.
Latitude is a bit like Glastonbury. Except there’s no mud. And no rain. And you can walk around easily from stage to stage in minutes. Except the line-up hasn’t descended into a mostly indie-rock snorefest like most other festivals. And you can get out of the site at the end in just a few minutes. And best of all, there’s no rain or mud. However, it is exceedingly posh, full of families with their incredibly middle-class art school kids who are probably just dying to see Kate Nash. I feel hugely out of place. But still, determined to have a good time I soldier on, looking forward to the exciting prospect of Arcade Fire closing the festival.
