Saturday proved to be a big one for many of the revellers at Henham Park after a raucous secret set by former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and a stellar headline set from American rockers The Killers.

But after a slow start – fuelled by water and pain killers – the festival site began to fill up again.

And many of the crowd are raving about what has been a superb weekend of music, comedy and entertainment.

Kevin Sharp, formerly of Colchester but now living in London, said the festival had been the best he had ever attended.

'I go to Glastonbury every year – but obviously this year it has had a year off,' the 39-year-old said. 'So me and my mates decided to do Latitude and to be honest, and I almost hate to say this, it has been better than Glastonbury.

'The organisation – getting in and out of the site and all the staff – has been excellent. Faultless. I've not seen one fight or anyone behaving badly. I've not seen one police officer. It is quite something.

'I loved Liam. What a gig that was. And I really enjoyed Solange on Friday night. Looking forward to Sleeper later on – us oldies will like that one. We can pretend we are young again.'

Sunday highlights include Wolf Alice, Rag N Bone Man and headliners Alt J.
