Latitude 2009

Yet more bands added to bumper Latitude bill

John Mulvey

The attractions just keep on coming for the Uncut-sponsored Latitude Fest, held at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk between July 12 and July 15.

Besides the likes of Arcade Fire, The Good, The Bad & The Queen, Wilco and Jarvis Cocker, we're now thoroughly excited to annouce another venue at the festival - The Lake Stage.

The Lake Stage's line-up has been put together by Radio 1's Huw Stephens, and features a host of the country's most promising up-and-coming and underground bands.

The headliners are excellent Brighton duo Blood Red Shoes, hip hop poet Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobious Pip and Nottingham synthpunk duo I Was A Cub Scout. Also on the bill are acid-folk marvel and new Uncut favourite Voice Of The Seven Woods and the hotly-tipped Jo Lean And The Jing Jang Jong.

Inside the new Uncut...


Vile day here in London, improved to some degree I'd hope by the arrival in UK shops of the new edition of Uncut. It has Nick Drake on the cover, as you probably know if you're a subscriber and your copy arrived over the weekend.

It's the first time that Drake has appeared on our cover,...
