Latitude Festival 2017: The Coral review
- Credit: PAUL JOHN BAYFIELD
It's not often you leave an early afternoon The Coral gig battered and bruised.
But many did after the veteran band helped ease the Obelisk stage into action on Friday effortlessly and prompted a full blown mosh pit complete with a crowd surfing and a dance off.
Granted, the group have been on the circuit longer than many revellers at the front have been alive - with 16 years touring under their belts.
There's an innocence to their music which fits Latitude perfectly, and the Merseyside five-piece rockers have a formula to every song which resonates with all ages.
My first The Coral gig was almost a decade ago at Bestival and in that time I don't think they have put a note wrong.
You may also want to watch:
Hitting all the classics they injected some energy into Henham Park with Pass it On and In the Morning, throwing in the odd track from their latest album including Holy Revelation.
It could only be closed by Dreaming of You, a tune you can't help but dance to.
