Latitude’s Friday headliner, Lily Allen, has promised to “give it my all” after receiving a stream of abuse since being parachuted on to the bill.

The singer’s last-minute replacement of Two Door Cinema Club prompted criticism from the band’s fans on Twitter. She said she was ‘exhausted by the nastiness’, but the general mood on social media has been positive as revellers headed to Henham Park.

She tweeted: “If you’re going to be rude about my replacing @TDCinemaClub on here, can you just un @ me please ? I’m so exhausted by the nastiness.

“I understand that you’re disappointed but I don’t think that warrants abuse. They asked, I accepted, I will give it my all, + hope you enjoy.”

She will be headlining the Obelisk Arena this evening while Damon Albarn headlines on the Saturday and The Black Keys close the main stage on Sunday.

  • If you're disppointed by Two Door Cinema Club's withdrawal from Latitude then blame them! It's certainly not the fault of Lily Allen or the organisers. It seems to me that they've made a good effort to find a reasonable replacement at short notice.

  • Or, 'band I've never heard of' replaced by popular, well known, talented artist. Just coz you don't like her, doesn't give you the right to act like an ass.
