Last day of the festival – despite the heavy rain (including the tent leaking) managed to sleep ok – bit of a relaxed morning as my first gig was Nils Frahm at the iArena at 2pm. Duly tweeted Mary-Anne Hobbs from BBC6 Music (a big fan of Nils) I was in the queue and managed to get an excellent front row position – see photos below. Excellent performance, lovely friendly chap – particularly enjoyed the playing his piano with drumsticks.
I hung on to watch Josephine Foster who followed after Nils, somewhat smaller crowd and much quieter performance – her voice may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m a fan of Liz Green so thumbs up from me!
Meant to check out Kate Tempest performance but ended up catching Eagulls – not my bag and annoyingly most of the crowd stayed for The Fat White Family – who I really wanted to see, so ended up at the back – missed must of the malarkey and mischief (they were soon down to their boxers and up to their well publicised antics) – brilliant!
Failed to catch The War on Drugs and the evening went down hill from there as I was too far away for Tame Impala and The Black Keys – wish I’d gone to see Julia Holter instead!
Another excellent festival – 2015 is Latitude’s 10th anniversary so fingers crossed for some extra special goings on!
