Day two at Latitude Festival 2015

With the good weather holding, the second full day at the Latitude Festival 2015 was going to be a busy one but with my eye on the line up in the tented Radio 6 Arena it was unlikely that I would be making great demands on the sun tan cream.

I am over the moon that we were not there this weekend, and whoever is out there at festivals right now will be having a very soggy and cold experience...

Tom Robinson band kicked off the Radio 6 stag
At the end of the gig Tom Robinson takes the applause - a great crowd and a great singalong to "Glad to be gay"
Frett playing the Lake Stage
Some suitably middle class additions to this year's festival included Union Jack themed strawberries and cream
Making bubbles in the Obelisk Arena
Lots of lounging about today
Thurston Moore and his band played the Radio 6 stage -
This is certainly a family friendly festival - and it seemed that every six year old was equipped with a set of chunky headphones.
Sleepiness in the Radio 6 arena
From Brighton - Marika Hackman plays the iArena
Marika Hackman - playing at this stage for the second year running
Wolf Alice on the Radio 6 stage at Latitude
I was waiting for some audience surfing like at Glastonbury - but it did not come
Kids on shoulders at the Wolf Alice gig
A great set from The Charlatans - again at the Radio 6 Arena
A brief visit to the Obelisk Stage - Laura Marling
Stag party at Latitude Festival 2015
Savages ("not a girl band") on the Radio 6 stage
This was the second time in 7 months that I have been bowled over by a Savages gig
There were some great sunsets at Latitude this year - the trees blocked off the full glory
Prides on the Lake Stage at Latitude Festival 2015
More Prides
The sky just got hotter
I was too late to the party to get up close to Catfish and the Bottlemen

A bit fuzzy - but these were Portishead, today's headliners on the Obelisk Stage
Resting outside the Literary Arena
While the band Portishead were on the main stage at the Latitude Festival, whether by coincidence or design,  Tim Clare was in the poetry arena reciting his poem "In Portishead"

About 11pm by the lake - it looks as if it had been a tiring day for some
I kept arriving at the Lavish Lounge while nothing was going on on stage!
The developing street art In the Woods
