Dylan packs out comedy tent. Annuals. Bat For Lashes



Something of a full afternoon, I have to report. So busy, in fact, I've only just got round to my first beer of the day. But, happily, I also had my first Latitude highlight: Bat For Lashes.

Elvis Perkins, Stephanie Dosen and the singer-songwriter glut
