Why Latitude?

Janeane Garofalo is playing the comedy stage this year which is quite a big deal. I've seen her perform in Canada and the US and I'm looking forward to seeing her do her thing in front of a British audience.

What do you always bring to a festival?

A good head torch. I think I'm more into the camping and outdoors paraphernalia that go along with the festival experience than most others are. I'll be bringing an excellent all weather tent complete with wood burning stove and camp cooking utensils. The most useful thing to bring is a head torch. People will make jokes about going down mines but they will also envy your ability to navigate in the dark with your hands free.

Do you have any festival tips?

Once again. HEAD TORCH!
