Nursing something of a sore head after having slightly too much fun to Foals, Dels, The Walkmen and British Sea Power yesterday, here are NME‘s tips for Sunday at Latitude…
1. See Adam Buxton at the Comedy Arena
One half of Adam and Joe brings his mad YouTube clips to Latitude. Expect rapier sharp wit, and the chance to see your favourite podcaster live.
Comedy Arena, 16.25 – 16.55
2. Witness Gwilym Gold’s magical trickery live
As you’ll have read on NME.com, former Golden Silvers frontman Gwilym Gold is releasing his music in a nifty format called Bronze, a piece of software that means you never hear the same version of his songs twice. Having been duly wowed by his coding skills, heres the chance to catch him in the flesh – NME has seen him before, and he’s marve.
Lake Stage, 16.30 – 17.00
3. Get cultural with Sadler’s Wells’ Fela
The esteemed dance company transport their show about the life and times of Fela Kuti to Latitude. It’s already sold out at the National Theatre and won three Tony Awards on Broadwa, so it’s a rare chance to witness their colourful show.
Waterfront Stage, 15.20 – 15.40
4. Watch Arcade Fire’s Scenes From The Suburbs
Get the Kleenex at the ready – Scenes From The Suburbs is an affecting, arresting watch. Co-written by famed director Spike Jonze and Arcade Fire’s Win and Will Butler, it’s a companion piece to Arcade Fire’s brilliant third album, ‘The Suburbs’.
5. Catch Johnny Flynn at the Film & Music Arena
A bit different from young Flynn’s usual banjo-bothering – today he and his band The Sussex Wit perform to a poem by WB Yeats, complete with visuals from young filmmakers and artists.
Film & Music Arena, 18.30 – 19.30
