Days to go: 12. A catch-up with Obelisk Arena favourite Ben Howard
Friday 29 June 2012
It’s official; Latitude is less than a fortnight away.
Time to dust off the tent, rummage through the festival wardrobe, crack open the pimms and blast out Elbow’s greatest hits at work. Festival season can now begin.
In fact, so excited are we, that we hunted down Ben Howard, our penultimate Sunday act on the Obelisk Arena, to chat about why he’s so excited to play at Latitude, where we’ll find him dancing late at night on-site and check out what he won’t leave home without!
Ben Howard’s emotive, alt-folk inspired performances have won him critical praise and his debut album, Every Kingdom, was a UK top ten. Make sure you are there for what promises to be a spell-binding performance as the sun sets on the Sunday evening at Latitude.
