OCS would be a good shout for me.

Hot Chip would be ok now but not quite the same quality as a few years ago.

Bill Callahan, Vaudou Game and Arron Lee Tasjan would also be nice additions.

Hot Chip 13 has got to be one of the best Latitude sets of all time.

Same year, Alt-J in the BBC 6 Music tent was immense... probably peaked right there.

Kraftwerk was another memorable one for me. The visual display was cracking to go with the music.Tried to get tickets for their Soutbank shows the year before but failed so this was great for me.

Alt-J over Kraftwerk, are you crackers my man?

a lot of people do say that..... including my family (and not just about Kraftwerk).

i am old enough to think that Kraftwerk were fecking annoying first time round, i didnt at the time want to be standing in the middle of a field stroking my (rubbish) beard saying "this lot invented electronic music you know.."

granted, i understand that they were great... however, you pays your money and takes your choice... and i have seen Alt-J about 4 times since and always said "they were fantastic at Latitude in 2013".

I dont regret my choice that particularly night. However, put the 2 in front of me again and i would go see Kraftwerk. Alt-J peaked on Saturday 20th July 2013.

As much as I would do all I can to avoid those squeaky Clean Bandits... I cannot see them accepting a five down the bill slot at Latitude..

Hot Chip to headline please.....

God, that was a weird evening. I got a little too bonkers and couldn't handle the threedee, so ended up having a lovely half sat down boogie in the woods to Purity Ring.

Another one who did this. Started watching Kraftwerk. Got bored. Went off to see Alt J, who were IMMENSE! Since thewn, they have gone right off the boil. But, in that tent, in 2013, it was spectacular.

tbh, it was hard for me to miss Veronica Falls (RIP) and Purity Ring. Still haven't managed to see Purity Ring live, Shrines is one of my favourite albums of the 2010s.

If MBV come through with this new material for 2018, I'd love to see them at Latitude. They could easily headline I reckon.

Naw not nowadays. On their last trot out, they headlined FN6 to a modest crowd, the Transmissions Stage at TITP to a couple of hundred people and were also announced to headline Hop Farm which was obviously an error in judgement as it was cancelled not long after that announcement. They'd be a BBC Music Stage headliner, a small one at that but can't really see em going anywhere else.

I would be very happy to see 'step up slots' in 2018 for Sylvan Esso, Sigrid, Tom Grennan, Lemon Twigs, Lloyle Carner... all played top sets this year...

Sylvan Esso in particular would smash the BBC Music tent...

Ah fair enough, just my own personal bias coming into account!

Yeah those Shrines era shows were amazing. Still solid these days except the tunes don't bang as hard.

Another Eternity is a great album, it's not as consistent as Shrines but it definitely hits the same highs on quite a few tracks.

Throwing Christine and the Queens into the mix. If new album out will be high up on main stage. Highlight of 2016. 

True enough.. 6 Music tent was perfect for them..  2016s performance was a very emotional affair, being straight after the atrocities in Nice and the crowd really showed their love and support.. they were also riding a summer wave of originality/novelty at every festival, deservedly so...

I think they would need a couple of big new tunes to stir the late afternoon Obelisk crowd though..
