Skies were looking grim over the main stage but the chilled, dance anthems of Milky Chance managed to just keep the weather at bay, and get everyone in the crowd dancing and jumping in time with the guitar beat.

Hailing from Germany two best friends Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch came on to the main stage bringing their chilled rhythms to the Latitude crowds.

Half way through the set, they brought on friend and singer Izzy Bizu to join them with a couple of tracks – playing popular hits Stolen Dance and Cocoons.

The set was only slightly marred when lead singer almost began playing the wrong song, but taking it in jest and good nature, they soon got back on track.

They kept the crowd bouncing with many getting up on each others shoulders, ending with a particularly bouncy hit that left the crowd jumping the entire way through.
