Latitude 2015

Recommended Posts

Well after reading the efests interview I'm going for

Portishead - special act they've been after.

B&S - headlined before

XX - played latitude before and moving up the line up.

I would say it's a lot of wishful thinking as well.

Nah, they'll be the Bestival headliners :P

I'm thinking specifically a 2006 headliner:

that's from Snow Patrol, Antony & The Johnsons, and Mogwai

Mogwai played last year second stage. Anthony @ Johnson's aren't really big enough anymore. Just leaves Snow Patrol.

'

ten acts from Latitude 2006 coming back for special homecoming shows'

Could see Anthony playing mind you, just not headlining!

Here is the 2006 line up for the ten acts

http://www.latitudefestival.com/history/latitude-festival-2006

There is a mighty fine selection of indie bands in there!

Larrikin Love!!! Mevlin needs to get them to reform :D

I'd also take: Lemonheads, Mystery Jets!!, Pigeon Detectives!!, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Howling Bells...please!

Patti Smith is around, so seems quite obvious (unless she's exclusive to field day?). I am Kloot could be likely to?

Paolo Nutini could be the repeat headliner? :P

Other bands I like a couple of songs from, not sure how active they are though: Rumble Strips, Noisettes!, Pippettes(Didn't one of them get in a really bad car accident actually?), Peter, Bjorn and John, Guillemots.

I really like that 2006 lineup!

I think Howling Bells and Guillemots are the only ones of those I'd even consider watching now.

This is sounding very exciting. There are loads of acts on that 2006 list I wouldn't mind seeing if still around.

For the headliners I'll go fo Bjork, Alt-J and (sadly) Flo.

Albums not out until end of 2015, can't see her cutting of recording to play gigs in the summer.

Sadly I think Alt-J are likely, but I reckon the Portishead/Nick Cave/B&S shouts aren't pure optimism.

Flo is way too big for Latitude now.

Ten years ago, when they were singing in Latin and Blaine was bashing most of his mums kitchen equipment. Good times.

Nothing against Portishead, but them AND Alt-J as headliners? Bloody hell. Hardly a party environment. I know it's not something which you always have to reject, but surely something a bit more lively is in order?

Let's work this out

Snow Patrol

Antony and the Johnsons

Mogwai

Damien Rice

The Good, The Bad and The Queen

Arcade Fire

Franz Ferdinand

Sigur Ros

Interpol

Pet Shop Boys

Grace Jones

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Florence

Belle and Sebastien

Vampire Weekend

The National

Paulo Nutini

Suede

Bon Iver

Elbow

Paul Weller

Bloc Party

Kraftwerk

Foals

Two Door Cinema Club/Lily Allen

Damon Albarn
The Black Keys

Now, having done all that, I've crossed out the ones who we can pretty much rule out. The National are rumoured on this website, although they've hammered the festival circuit the last two summers, The Good, The Bad and The Queen have been spoken about doing something together, but please god NO MORE ALBARN.

Does it categorically state a headliner will be returning? And does a previous headliner have to return as a headliner?

My guess for the headliners would probably be:

Alt-J, Paolo Nutini, Morrissey

Possible Portishead instead of Morrissey as 'the act they've been after for a while'. As thetime said I can't see it being Bjork because she'll be recording the new album.
