Yes, I’m pretty gutted not to be at Latitude this year. Lots of my friends are there. There are some really cool bands playing. Of Montreal! Thom Yorke! Phoenix! Slow Club! And some amazing comedy – Janeane Garofolo! The Book Club lot! The Penny Dreadfuls! Not to mention Luke Kennard reading some of those poems of his.
But hey, let’s turn that negativity into CREATIVITY, eh? Therefore, I announce my own weekend of carefully curated music…
Each day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I’ll be posting a link to a Spotify playlist featuring a “set” of five songs by five amazing artists.
It’s roughly structured like the mainstage of a festival, so it starts with smaller acts and then a headliner each night.
If you haven’t succumbed to Spotify yet, go here to open an account and download the player. The free service will mean that the festival will be interrupted occasionally by adverts, but what modern rock festival doesn’t have corporate sponsors, eh?
Turn it up nice and loud, open all your windows, eat some substandard food, wear an alarming hat, and hey! IT’S JUST LIKE BEING AT A FESTIVAL!
It begins tomorrow! You’re going to love the VIBES of it!
