With a price tag creeping over £200 with fees, Latitude is a huge player on the festival scene, and as usual the line-up has the big names to match – but let’s be honest, the headliners are safe to the point of being dull. Fleet Foxes are by the far most interesting of the trio, and while there’s no denying people want to see The 1975 and Mumford & Sons, there’s also no denying that they’re both really boring. That said, step away from the headliners and there’s some excellent stuff on offer; Yorkston Thorne Khan bring their anglo-scottish-indian take on folk to Suffolk, plus there are sets from Divine Comedy and Grandaddy, and most intriguingly of all a main stage appearance from John Cale.  Latitude can also join the very long list of festivals featuring Julia Jacklin, Honeyblood and Kevin Morby. It’s not that Latitude looks bad, it is just going through an identity crisis; does it want to retain its alternative spirit, or does it want to be Glastonbury part two?
