10 highlights from today’s Latitude line-up:
1. Tame Impala
Warming up for headliners, The Black Keys, Australian outfit Tame Impala will bring a psychedelic rock tsunami to the Obelisk Arena.
2. Parquet Courts
Two acclaimed albums in two years have made Parquet Courts, from New York, the hottest punk band in the world. See why on the BBC Radio 6 Music Stage.
The Leeds four piece recently appeared on Late Night with David Letterman in the US, and take to the iArena at tea time.
4. Daisy Victoria

5. Ady Suleiman
The Nottingham singer-song-writer has been making waves for the last few years and is on the line-up for the Alcove stage.
6. Henning Wehn

8. Scroobius Pip
Spoken word performer Scroobius will be in the Poetry tent sharing his gospel. Always a treat.

10. Atomic Bomb! Who is William Onyeabor
A must for any first-timer at Latitude, this collaborative act should see a line-up of superstars, which in the past have included members of Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem and the Beastie Boys, take no the fabled lunchtime Obelisk Arena slot.
