Festival season is in full flow and, here at The Reviews Hub,we’re tents pitched and wellies washed for our return to Suffolk’s Latitude Festival. With so much happening across Henham Park it can be hard to choose what to see. Our cheeky Latitude Lowdown series offers you the chance to hear about some of the offerings to be had. Glen Pearce spoke to Gob Squad abouttheir show Super Night Shot.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
An uplifting romantic-thriller- fantasy-documentary – art movie filmed and screened once and once only.
Is this your first visit to the Latitude Festival, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?
First visit – we are expecting festival fun in a civilised atmosphere.
How important is it for festivals such as Latitude to have arts programming alongside the music acts?
Really important! We as artists are inspired as much by musicians as we are by writers, comedians and film makers. Audiences should have an opportunity to join those dots too.
How have you been preparing for festival life?
Planning, planning, planning… There’s a lot that can go wrong in our pro
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other Latitude offerings?
It’s the only movie you’ll see that’s made just one hour before it’s screened. And the only act where you might get to have a beautiful slow-motion kiss with the star of show.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Latitude (apart from your own!)?
Can’t wait for Christeene and Duckie!
Are you camping at Latitude and if so what is your one top camping tip?
We’re staying off site as we’re flying in from Berlin for this gig so we couldn’t fit all our camping equipment into one 20kg suitcase. Camping tip? Pitch tents in a circle for maximum sociability.
Wellies or fancy footwear for the festival – and why?
Wellies. Dry feet = happy mind
Super Night Shotwill be performed at this year’s Latitude Festival, which runs 14-17 July 2016
