This time last week we were on the way to Latitude festival in picturesque Suffolk. Sigh.
The photos aren't the best but the weekend was excellent! I've fallen out of love with live music of late; day-to-day I work in an obscure corner of the music industry so it's an occupational hazard, I guess. That being said, the chance to see some of my favourite bands (and comedians!) all in the romantic, fairylight lit forest-dreamland that Latitude is famous for being, well, it was too good to miss. My personal highlights include First Aid Kit, Haim, Bombay Bicycle Club and Valerie June, none of whom I'd seen live before. That being said, I had the most insane fun bopping about in our matching wellies at Jonny Woo's alt/drag show homage to Lou Reed's 'Transformer' (pun fully acknowledged) album.
The festival feeling has carried on way into this week and I've been incessantly listening to the playlist below. I feel like I've got my musical mojo back. Thank you, Latitude.
