Latitude 2009

Countdown to Latitude...Midlake

MIDLAKE

Having earned their place in many an end-of-year Top Ten poll (including Uncut’s) for their album ‘The Trials Of Van Occupanther’, Texan quintet Midlake show what they’re made of at Latitude 2007.

Latitude takes place July 12 - 15 at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
