Latitude Festival - artist previews

With less than a month to go until Latitude Festival (12-15 July), a few of the artists have been previewing the event and highlighting some of the stuff they're looking forward to.

Sonic Flyer - Yulia (singer/lead guitar) and Rob (bass)



1.) What aspect of Latitude Festival interests you the most and why?

We're naturally most excited about the line-up on the music stages, but it's the variety of stages and activities that's going to make it a great festival. Not forgetting the sheep, of course.

2.) What can people expect you to bring to the festival and do you have anything special planned?

We're apparently playing at a time when no other band is on another stage, so people can expect us to bring noise in place of silence. Don’t expect anything visual like fireworks, dancing or anything - we’re not about that. But we’ll definitely bring some great sounds that’ll blow your mind!

3.) Who are you most looking forward to seeing at the festival and why?

We're very excited about seeing The National and Arcade Fire are bound to put on an amazing show. Also keep an eye out for the brilliant Cherry Ghost in the Uncut arena.

4.) If you weren't doing this what would you be doing?

We'd probably be locked away in our sweaty rehearsal room, making sure we were good enough to be invited to play next year.

5.) What is your favourite colour sheep?

We have an inclusive approach to sheep and treat all equally, regardless of their colour. That said, a bright green sheep would be quite something or what about painting a big Mod's bullet on a sheep's back?

Alabama 3 - Rob

1.) What aspect of Latitude festival interests you most and why?

Whether there are communal showers in the VIP area. Our piano player has always dreamt of sharing a shower with Paul Simonon.

2.) What can people expect you to bring to the festival?

A sober and focused critique of all things magical.

3.) Who are you most looking forward to seeing at the festival
and why?

I'm looking forward to seeing Paul Simonon in the mud because he’s the nattiest dresser on the block and a bit of mud wouldn't hurt him.

4.) If you weren't doing this what would you be doing?

Explaining to my probation officer why I'm not doing it.

5.) What is your favorite colour sheep?

As an honorary Welshman, I believe the colour of wool is no baaaar to the joy of festival flock hunting.

Annuals - Mike Robinson

1.) What aspect of Latitude Festival interests you the most and why?

The longitude!

2.) What can people expect you to bring to the festival and do you have anything special planned?

We're going to be bringing 6 ridiculous, big, absolutely dumb faces!

3.) Who are you most looking forward to seeing at the festival and why?

Camera Obscura, we're all pretty big fans but none of us have seen them yet. Arcade Fire and Jarvis should be exciting too.

4.) If you weren't doing this what would you be doing?

Something else involving gravity?!?!

5.) What is your favourite colour Sheep?

Corduroy!
