Latitude 2014: Saturday 19th July
From Damon Albarn and beyond, we’ve got all the updates from Henham Park.
Fresh-faced for another day of Latitude action? Regained your bearings after tremendous sets from Lily Allen, Kelis, Mogwai and goodness knows what else? Good. Let’s continue.
Saturday at Latitude is all about the party. Royksopp & Robyn are essentially bringing a three-hour rave to the 6Music Stage with their headline set. Combining several corners of Scandinavian dance, this collaborative extravaganza is so exciting it wound up on the cover of DIY. We’ll be catching up with the coverstars later this afternoon, ahead of their set.
Then there’s the funk brigade. Hall & Oates and Jungle are lined up in rows, linking together separate decades but bringing ‘The Heat’ in equal measure. There’s also New Zealand duo Broods, Oxford oddball poppers Glass Animals, animal in the jungle Tom Vek, and did we mention the incredible headline billing of the one and only Damon Albarn? Today’s a ridiculously busy day for music - we’ll be right in the middle of it.
Let’s not forget yesterday’s action. We’ve reports of SOHN, Anna Calvi, Kelis, Mogwai, Editors, East India Youth, Lily Allen and several others from the Friday at Latitude. Needless to say things got off to an exciting start.
Today we’ll be bringing you live updates, backstage interviews, everything under the beaming Suffolk sun.
