The Good, The Bad and The Queen Close Latitude Day Two

The Good, The Bad and The Queen Close Latitude Day Two

Damon Albarn’s indie supergroup The Good, The Bad and the Queen have just rounded off a beautifully sunny day of music on day two at Latitude Festival.

As well as being a busy day for music on the four stages, the theatre, comedy, cabaret and other random areas of culture at Latitude have all been packed, with the last of the sell-out 20,000 capacity crowd arriving for the weekend.

Click on the artist links here to catch up with Uncut’s reports from The Obelisk stage. Some great calibre sets were witnessed from The Hold Steady, CSS,
The Annuals and Bat For Lashes.

Over in the ever-busy Uncut Arena, Rodrigo Y Gabriela have just brought events to a close for today too. The tent has seen an array of musical turns from Rickie Lee Jones, Elvis Perkins and Joan As Police Woman amongst others.

The comedy tent has been a real treat today, with Lee Mack, Stewart Lee and Dylan Moran all packing punches with jokes about jugglers, tents and being a cashier in Tescos.

Latitude’s last day is looming, but it’s looking like the party’s going to go out with a bang – we’re extremely excited to seeing Arcade Fire, Jarvis Cocker, Cold War Kids, The National, Gruff Rhys, Soulsavers with Mark Lanegen all on the same billing.

Director Shane Meadows is also doing a Q&A before a screening of recent Uncut film of the month ‘This Is England.’

In the meantime, check out some of our pics from the day here on the Uncut picture blog.
