I went to Latitude Festival with Hollie at the weekend. We Both camped in my tent and slept in our shipwrecked sleeping bags It's the longest I've ever spent sleeping it a tent, but it was fine... turns out I'm not as much of a middle class snob as I thought
As well as a main stage and two smaller music stages, there was a Poetry Arena, Literary Arena, Literary Saloon, Cabaret Arena, Film Arena, Comedy Arena, Theatre and Floating Lake Stage.
The headliners reflected the middle class, middle aged feel of the event;
Nick cave and the bad seeds – who was good and created a great atmosphere but I didn’t know his songs and he finished early with no encore
Grace Jones – Who I missed, but I hear was amazing. She did a costume change for each song. I turned up right at the end, just as she was saying she caouldn't do an encore because if she goes passed 11, the organisers get finned... and they turned her microphone off mid sentence.
Pet Shop Boys – I wasn’t the biggest fan but after seeing them live I’ve been turned... they put on an epic stage show!
I find Glastonbury too intense and camping at Reading festival is just so unpleasant, but I enjoyed all aspects of Latitude and I’d defiantly go back!
