The third and final fantastic day of Latitude 2008 is drawing to a close, with Interpol having just battled through heavy rainfall to play a career-spanning set.

Today (July 19) has been full of great music, big laughs and plenty of colour, and you can read about all of them on our various blogs and news stories by clicking on the artist and titles highlighted in red.

Among the many highlights have been Nick Cave, playing with Grinderman and premiering a new song destined for the band’s second album; insane crowd turn outs for Blondie‘s set in the Uncut Arena; Foals in the Obelisk Arena; and, of course, Joanna Newsom‘s enchanting lunchtime show, where the harpist debuted three new songs to a awe-struck audience.

We’ve seen great bands play across the arenas, including a shambolic but utterly brilliant The Breeders, incredibly well-dressed, recent Club Uncut players Okkervil River, and Black Lips.

We’ve also filed reports from around the Henham Park estate, including part 4 of our overheard conversations blog, festival shopping and t-shirt’s spotted, and our report from the Comedy Tent, including Phill Jupitus, Ross Noble and Frankie Boyle.

It’s been an amazing three days in Suffolk, with highlights including Sigur Ros, Elbow, Wild Beasts, and Amadou & Mariam.

It’s been a very colourful weekend.
