Latitude 2015 Django Django: “We jumped at the chance to play at Latitude again”

Django Django are looking forward to returning to the festival this weekend.

This weekend, Django Django will join DIY at Latitude to help celebrate the festival’s 10th birthday - and the band are really looking forward to their stint in Henham Park, Suffolk.

“I remember that it was raining but everyone was in a really positive mood,” bassist Jim Dixon says of their last visit to the festival. “We were rowed out across a lake to a little stage in the woods somewhere and the whole place was totally packed out. I’m pretty sure we played about 4 or 5 years ago at Latitude and ended up getting drunk with Keith Allen in some tent somewhere. Happy days.”

“We jumped at the chance to play at Latitude again,” he continues. “Personally I much prefer playing smaller more intimate festivals. There’s these amazing little parties going on tucked away everywhere. You always end up rambling about until the sun comes up the next day…”

His band will be playing on a line up that also includes headliners Alt-J, Portishead and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, as well as James Blake, Warpaint, Wolf Alice, Years & Years, Laura Marling and loads, loads more. Who’s he planning to see? “Caribou, Portishead, Warpaint, Omar Souleyman, Songhoy Blues, Tim Key, Sounds of the Cosmos… definitely gonna see if we can find Keith again.”

And does the band have anything special planned for their set? “Yeah, we’ve got five or six new songs on the go and we’ll have time to get another one or two up to scratch before Latitude. I guess it depends on what song works within the set but we’ll definitely playing new songs. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring our light show along too.”

Django Django will play Latitude (16th - 19th July), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit diymag.com/presents for more information.
