Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis previously spoke to NME about their upcoming headline performance, who recalled “a significant moment” for the band, when they headlined Latitude for the first time in 2013.
“They were the first people to give us a shot at headlining a festival,” Philippakis said of Latitude. “That was obviously a pretty amazing night for us, and I think it arguably changed the trajectory of our career. It definitely was a significant moment for us.”
In a five-star review of the festival’s 2021 return, NME said, “This year, the Latitude audience feels more committed than ever when it comes to drawing every last drop of fun out of the weekend” adding that: “The sense of intimate, euphoric celebration that’s contained within the crashing of strangers’ bodies only grows stronger as the festival progresses.”
