Interpol closed 2008’s Latitude Festival tonight (July 20) with a greatest hits set.

Headlining in the main Obelisk Arena the New Yorkers performed a selection of track from their three albums to date, including “Mammoth” , “Evil” and “Obstacle 1” .

The band, dressed in their customary black, were bathed in red light throughout, and performed in front of a backdrop of impressive projections.

Although the weather turned rainy during the last half hour, the crowd kept on singing along and punching the air.

Returning for an encore, Interpol ended their set with “Stella Was A Diver And She Was Always Down” from their debut album Turn On The Bright Lights.
