Latitude 2009 just gets better…

Mew (side)I’ve ranted and raved about just how good Latitude 2009 is looking (here and here), and quite honestly I thought that that would be the last of it, announcements wise. Oh no.

Thom Yorke (of Radiohead fame) was announced to be playing at midday on the Sunday a few weeks back, and now they’ve announced Red Light Company, Phoenix, The Gaslight Anthem, Rumble Strips and Mika, alongside some huuuuuuge names from the world of comedy (Jo Brand? Dave Gorman? Ed Byrne?), books and theatre. This is on top of the already announced ace lineup featuring Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones, Editors, Doves, and although they may be a bit lower down the bill, Danish guys Mew, who I simply adore.

Much like Hydro Connect had one of the best lineups of the summer last year, quite honestly, I think that in the absence of Connect that Latitude has the best lineup of all the festivals this summer.

After the jump: read an interview with Mew’s Jonas Bjerre about the festival. Tickets are on sale now for Latitude 2009 – weekend tickets are £150 plus booking fees. Day tickets for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday are £60 each plus booking fees. Weekend tickets prices include car parking and camping – day tickets include car parking only.

News: Latitude Lineup is extended

Marina and the Diamonds (side)We previewed the amazing Latitude back at the start of April, but since then they’ve added a few more amazing acts just to, well, make it even more amazing as far as the “alternative” festivals go. Joining the likes of Grace Jones, Pet Shop Boys and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds they’ve added some of TGTF’s favourite artists, including Regina Spektor, Passion Pit, Patrick Wolf, Mew, Marina and the Diamonds (pictured right) and Lisa Hannigan.

Huw Stephens (who has had some pretty amazing finds over recent months) has confirmed that he’s choosing all of the bands on the coveted Lake Stage, which features many of the bands we’ve tipped for the top here at TGTF along with some choice cuts from who will be big over the coming months. If we were fortunate enough to be attending, that’s where we’d be spending much of our time most likely. That’s not to say that the rest of the lineup is rubbish – no, far from it. Latitude is one of the best fully featured festivals we know – that is, it’s not just music. Oh no. It’s got some of the best talents from the theatre, literary and film worlds, including the amazing Dave Gorman performing in the comedy tent. Meanwhile, over in the literary arena there’s a pretty big scoop in the shape of fashion designer extrodinaire Vivienne Westwood. Let’s be honest, that’s gotta be worth the ticket price on her own!

Tickets are on sale now for Latitude 2009 – weekend tickets are £150 plus booking fees. Day tickets for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday are £60 each plus booking fees. Weekend tickets prices include car parking and camping – day tickets include car parking only.
