Latitude Revellers Prepare For Fiery Finish

by | 15 July 2007

Revellers at Latitude festival will see the Rapture, Jarvis Cocker and Arcade Fire close this year's festival in somewhat damp conditions.

Tonight's headliners will close the three-day Suffolk festival after yesterday's pleasant summery conditions were ideally suited to some of the headline acts.

Brazilian new-rave popsters CSS were on particularly good form before Damon Albarn brought the Good the Bad and the Queen to the festival's green pastures.

Latitude is the only UK festival that Albarn's latest project have headlined so far and he was suitably dressed in top hat and pinstriped suit.

Acts to have performed so far include Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and New Young Piny Club.

Tonight Jarvis will be making one of his few festival appearances after being busy with his own festival at the Royal Festival Hall last month.

The former Pulp frontman will be playing tracks from his debut solo album Jarvis as well as the odd surprise.

Arcade Fire will complete the festival's fun and games after headlining the Other stage at Glastonbury at the end of June.
