The Maccabees and Bailey Rae light up Latitude
THOUSANDS of festival-goers basked in the sunlight for a second day of musical delights.
It may have rained briefly yesterday morning, but as the sun shone down on Latitude festival’s Henham Park, music lovers were in their element as folk and indie music rang out across the stunning Suffolk setting.
Converging on the Obelisk stage, after a night which saw Florence and the Machine shine, the crowd swayed as Corinne Bailey Rae took to the stage for a daytime slot.
Bailey Rae charmed the crowd with her melodic tone, as she performed hits from her debut self titled album and new songs from The Sea.
Brighton-based The Maccabees then had the crowd in the palm of the hands with hits such as Love You Better, X-Ray, Toothpaste Kisses and Precious Time.
Jumping in unison, the crowd sung every word alongside lead vocalist Orlando Weeks.
Meanwhile, hundreds of festival-goers took to the comedy and poetry stages as the magical charm of Latitude festival continued to build throughout the day.
