01 ‘Holocene’ Bon Iver

18–21 July 2013 Henham Park nr Southwold, Suffolk LATITUDE FESTIVAL 2013 I

t’s an announcement fuelled with anticipation and expectation, not least from the Outline office, as mid-March once again saw the announcement of the majority of this year’s Latitude line-up. It dominates and soundtracks

the summer of many of us Anglian residents, and this year, it could be argued is the best yet, if not for some time. Since Latitude became a heavyweight on the festival circuit, garnering national following as well as local, they have inevitably courted praise and criticism on the line-up choices. Te Comedy tent, Film, Literature, Teatre and many other Latitude gaieties are universally adored, but there’s something more subjective about music, which is harder to curate for an audience that gets wider at both ends of the age spectrum. So why is this year on the money? Te headliners aren’t all mind-blowers, but Kraftwerk alone is a major festival coup; not even sleeping with Angela Merkel would have bought you tickets to the band’s 3D show at the Tate Modern earlier this year, but thousands of us will get to see the show in the Suffolk countryside this summer. Foals and Bloc Party are neither surprising nor pant-wettingly exciting, but it’s when you move down the bill, you see the quality throughout. From stage to stage, from top of the bill to bottom, you will live the whole summer in one weekend. For tickets, and further announcements, go to

01 ‘Run Boy Run’ Woodkid

NORFOLK + NORWICH FESTIVAL 2013 10-26 May 2013 Venues around Norwich

frisson of excitement as our familiar streets were populated by the unfamiliar, as ‘Invasion’ swept their miraculous creations through the city. From the title, from the description, we didn’t know what to expect, but it was the reputation that NNF has in the city that got us out in full force, all ages, late into the evening. It’s that reputation that will sell so much of NNF 2013’s programme of events to you as it returns this May, but to pick a couple out, we’re buzzing that French video producer turned artist in his own right Woodkid is coming to the Teatre Royal for an aural and visual spectacular. Te familiar Gallic lilt and clacker clack of his track ‘Run Boy Run’ was used heavily by O2 adverts, but it’ll reclaim itself as it’s shown on a deserving stage. Celebrating music in an entirely different way than the sat-down ingestion of a Teatre Royal show, we’re already polishing our dancing shoes for Dance Marathon, a high-energy endurance test that you’re welcome to observe, or joinin. It’s what my dancing shoes were born for. As just a tip of the iceberg, these shows represent a plethora more, so get booking early by going to
