has anyone heard any rumors about who may be headlining?
but last.fm says that howling bells, sky larkin and luke wright are playing
anymore? i've tried searching for rumors, but i canny find any. i should just go to henham park and ask them, it's about an hour away.
I did read somewhere that announcements and the release of remaining tickets might not be until April.
bon iver, howling bells, sonic youth and bloc would all be pretty sweet
the headliners for the past 3 years, this year is going to be...
Belle & Sebastian, Andrew Bird & Animal Collective.
I mean they evidently haven't done anything for a while and Stuart Murdoch's been doing his musical but, so far as I'm aware, I didn't think they'd said anything to entirely rule out the possibility of them doing a festival in the summer?
but they've not played live for two and a half years and God Help The Girl's not being promoted as a B&S project.
i thought the same.
just sharing what i consider as a trustworthy source.
but otherwise I agree that these seem small fry compared to Franz, Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros, Interpol e.t.c. I predict The Flaming Lips will headline one day.
would be awesome. i'm hoping for a good mix.
and they're playing Rock Ness in mid-June so clearly they're not averse to playing UK festivals even though they're about to go back into the studio. I'd have thought Portishead would be bolt on, but who knows.
They may be 'big' amongst the fey cardigan toting asymetrical fringed pasty faced volunteer librarians who frequent this forum, but other than that only about a dozen actually care about Animal Collective. And half of them are in the band.
But they sold out the Forum no problem, didn't they? And I know you've been to Latitude before, surely you've noticed fey cardigan toting asymetrical fringed pasty faced volunteer librarians comprise a significant proportion of the audience? (Although to be fair, not quite as large a proportion as organic-produce munching, Independent-reading families governed benignly by a patriarch invariably named Hugo...)
'No India, that's daddy's Yakult!'
"Come here, Octavius" last year
go top 30 with less than a thousand sales in a week.
it wasnt as if they were playing small venues either, not to mention they are getting lots of coverage in outlets including 'The Sun' & 'MTV 2' hardly the indie boys cardigans number 1 place of call. You're just out of touch, thus making your opinion void GRANDAD!
.....and the other two are nowhere near big enough.

You and your posting to the same thread the next day ways.
rather unknown festival to, wouldn't you say?
i mean, you never hear you typical white van man cry out "yeahhhh, im going to Latitude, gonna be well ace init man"
but then again, I do admit, he's not headline material at all.
is that the locals will eat up the tickets regardless of who plays. as long as they regocnise the name of at least one of the headliners, they're sold. it's very much a nice weekend away for east anglian hip families, lots of sunning and sitting on blankets.
it's a sweet festival, loved it last year.
i remember some Lowestoft folk last year, having not heard of Sigur Ros at all, thought Damien Rice was dead and also thought Interpol were an emo band.
oh how I laughed.
i remember someone saying the Damien Rice comment the year before.
i couldnt go last year because of work commitments. But a guy i knew just walked in on the saturday night, didnt get caught, saw Sigur Ros and was blown away. and he only went because I told him they were worth it.
for me too. jaw dropping.
i'm not that fussed on sigur ros but they where something else at latitude
passed out during their set. it was like ascending into heaven.
has got to play, it's two days after T in le park i think
