First day at Latitude Festival 2015

For the second year, this became the first day of the festival when it should have been the second. In what is generally a well run festival, organisers have something to learn, and to get it off my chest I have written separately about the 4 hour traffic queue to get into Latitude Festival.

Anyway, on to the photos because the rest was rather more fun!

On the opening morning of Latitude Festival 2015 visitors approach the main entrance from the campsites.
The excellent SOAK were the opening band on the Radio 6 stage
Visitors in the Radio 6 arena making their festival plans
The Districts were next up on the Radio 6 stage - energy!
In the Woods - as ever, strolling in fantastic natural surroundings was an important part of Latitude Festival 2015
This year street artists were invited into the woods
On the lake, on the floating Waterfront stage,  Sadlers Wells presented the Spanish all male dance ensemble, Roja & Rodrigues
The Australian band King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard perform in the iArena
I loved this set - so you get two pics of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Fema Kuti performing on the Obelisk Stage - built high for excellent views from the main arena. But not conducive to photography from 20 feet below in "the pit"
The Manchester based band Man Made performing on the Lake Stage
Felix Bushe performing lead vocals with Genghar in the iArena
Cool festival youth relaxing In the Woods
This year the Latitude sheep were pink
Crowds spill out of the iArena after a gig
They made room for me to get up close to Ezra Furman

Back to the Radio 6 stage for the superb Django Django
And when not a silhouette,  this is what they actually look like - Django Django on the Radio 6 stage
Alt J performing as headliners on the Obelisk Stage
The screens besides the new Obelisk stage were excellent - Alt J performing at Latitude Festival
Minimalism from Jon Hopkins on the Radio 6 stage
End of the day, for us anyway - a virtual projection onto a fountain over the lake with Latitude's real helter skelter behind
