alt-J complete their Latitude journey with headline slot
From the moment they got stuck in to the bass driven Fitzpleasure the crowd were with Alt-J as the band completed their Latitude journey with the Friday headline slot.
Despite having just two albums of material to work with the Leeds four-piece were able to fill the stage with their melting vocals and beautifully layered sound.
The set started out with a series of tracks from their Mercury Music Prize-winning debut album, An Awesome Wave, to the delight of the audience.
Although alt-J tend towards slower tracks the crowd were happy to dance to the broad drum beats.
While not a chatty band they thanked the crowd saying it was one of their favourite shows ever having made their way from the Lake Stage to the Obelisk Arena.
