Dressed in white jeans, black sun glasses, striped jumper and sporting a bright blonde bowl cut, lead singer of The Charlatans Tim Burgess kept the crowd entertained from the off.

The indie rock band got the audience swinging and swaying to their energetic rhythms from Let the good times never be ending and So oh.

Towards the end of the set the BBC Radio 6 tent filled to the brim - with those who most probably recalled the evolved band from when they formed in the late 80s.

Fresh from their secret performance at Glastonbury, The Charlatans are still enjoying popularity - much to the joy of the lead singer who took snaps on his camera phone along with shouts of 'look how many people there are behind you!' at the crowd.

Twenty five years on from their debut album The Charlatans released their latest album 'Modern Nature' earlier this year which reached the top 10 and - judging by their reception at Latitude - still know how to rock a crowd.
