Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Gossip and Magazine to close Latitude Festival 2009

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are set to close the fourth Latitude Festival tonight (Sunday July 19), Cave returning to Henham Park after playing with Grinderman at last year's event.

With possibly the strongest musical line-up of this year's event, Sunday's treats are set to include Magazine and The Vaselines who both play rare live gigs today in the Uncut Arena. Also in Uncut's tent, Saint Etienne and Tricky both go on before the Beth Ditto-led Gossip bring the house down as headliners.

The Obelisk Arena which has already hosted a rare solo performance by Radiohead's Thom Yorke at lunchtime - at which he debuted an untitled new song - is set to see gigs from Wild Beasts, The Gaslight Anthem, Phoenix and Editors before Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds play the final performance of the festival.

Uncut is bringing you news, reviews, blogs and pics from Latitude 2009 for the next three days : Stay in the loop with festival news at our dedicated blog here.
