Disappointingly I arrived too late and missed Ballet Black dancing on Friday,  these are drawings I made of the company when they performed at The Linbury, Covent Garden in March.

This year a much bigger crowd, strangely no extra loos and horrifyingly word travelled fast about two rapes on site. It took a while to feel the Latitude magic that my kids and I had felt in the two previous years. Music highlights for me were: Florence and The Machine, First Aid Kit, The XX, Jonsi, Rodrigo Y Gabriella and dancing and singing en masse to Vampire Weekend. My sons enjoyed The Maccabees and crowd surfing to Crystal Castles (next to Alice Glass…)  I loved the Faraway Forest, a new wooded area which came alive at night full of masked revellers, music and dancing. Oh and on Sunday morning Tom Jones sang from his new album Praise and Blame, what a voice – gorgeous.
