    Simple answer is not far and not long! Depending on where you camp (and we usually go in green camping which is furthest from the arena but quieter) it can be anything from 2 minutes to 15 minutes walk. As for getting thru the gates, we usually pitch up later on the Thursday but we've never had to queue more than half-an-hour, usually less. Its all v. relaxed, especially now that they've solved the traffic problems.

    Don't know about the cheese, but Pandora's playground, the Faraway Forest and the Cabaret tent have provided plenty of alternative entertainment over the years. Who doesn't love to see four half naked people dressed only in tinfoil taping bits of tree to themselves in the middle of the night.

    I SOOOO hope you're right. Its 30 years since I saw MBV live and they pretty much changed the entire way I thought about music right there and then. King Gizzard would be a great addition too if it happens.

    Mmm, there's several oddities this year. I'm still hoping Robert Smith's gonna pop up at some point in the Killer's set, but it just sounds too good and too perfect (as cats?) to be true. I think I made the point before that we haven't seen a real 'legend'-type act announced either - like Boomtown Rats, Squeeze, JJ Cale etc in previous years. Strange also (somebody please explain this) is the total lack of rumoured acts on this site (forum excepted) so far. You do get the feeling something's being kept under wraps- I just hope it's a good something.

    V odd mix Friday for sure. The only good thing about it is there's no danger of peaking too soon- I'll hopefully have plenty of energy left for the Sat/Sun singalongs!

    Interesting. Sunday's suddenly looking pretty strong if that's the case, more like a Friday lineup from years past than the usual final day's fayre.

    Decent booking, but weren't Wolf Alice penciled in to sub on the Friday? I'd be really disappointed if WA were 3rd or lower on the Obelisk or subbing the tent...

    Half the fun of Latitude is discovering new acts, not just music either but right across the board. You're right in that people have a tendency to dismiss stuff out of hand just because they haven't heard the name before. That's a really negative way to be. i'd urge anyone going for the first time to plant yourselves dowm with a bevvy on the Sunrise Arena or the Introducing Stage and just see what happens.

    George Ezra or Bastille would certainly please the Missus. Personally I'm already pretty happy with the lineup, but 2 or 3 more nice additions, particularly on the Obelisk, would be the icing on the cake. There's a few really long shots I'm still holding out for - The Kills; Deap Vally; Mazzy Star; MBV - but I'm not holding my breath. Notice there's been an unofficial' legends' slot on the Obelisk over the last few years- JJ Cale last year and Geldof a few years back. Can't see anyone announced yet who fits that bill so anyone hazard a guess as to who we might see?

    There must surely be another, bigger announcement to come...

    Squeaky bum time again Read yesterday that Mazzy Star are getting back together and possibly announcing some European tour/festival dates. Perfect band for latitude i'm thinking

    You are, although it's on a first come first serve basis and can get busy, so suggest you pitch up early. I noticed there was a pretty long queue last year but no reason to suppose anyone got turned away.

    Can't help thinkin we'll end up with the Ginger One strummin' along to The Man, but hey, that's one helluva thought!
