The last day of Latitude Festival is perhaps the most underwhelming of them. With Friday offering quality comedy and variety and Saturday being all about the music - Sunday was a bit of a free-for-all.

Latitude attendees woke-up to the news that Robin Thicke performed alongside Thom Yorke (from Radiohead) in his all-encompassing secret set and realizations that the rendition of Chasing Cars last night wasn't a cover but was coming from a secret Snow Patrol set, there is a sense of frustration in the air. What doesn't make it even better is the news that, in the morning, Ed Sheeran had performed another secret set in the Faraway Forest.

Oh Ed.

However, almost everyone is buzzing to discover what controversies Noel Gallagher will be stirring up as he closes the festival this evening - and those not interested in Gallagher will almost definitely be heading to the BBC Radio 6 Music Stage in the evening for SBTRKT.

All of the best sets seemed to clash - with Warpaint, Years & Years, Shura and Aquilo all performing at the same time, it appeared that Years & Years was the set to be at, with the group performing to a packed out BBC Radio 6 Music Stage (the same time that Olly mislead the audience into thinking that a 'secret set' would be happening in the tent in the evening... this did not happen).

Earlier in the afternoon, Jason Manford had also performed an all-new set in the Comedy Tent, but to a small audience (everybody thought it would be packed so nobody showed up!) and very few laughs.

However, as the evening ticked on, there was nothing quiet about Latitude. La Roux performing hits such as Bulletproof and In For The Kill was a hit, as was Jack Garratt at the i Arena and Rae Morris belting out her powerful vocals on the Main Stage.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds was definitely a strong choice to end the festival, with a mixture of new tunes and Oasis-classic being belted out under the sun set.

As night approached, everyone in attendance knew it would be a late one. Gareth Potter DJing 80's tunes on The Lake Stage until 3.00am entertained crowds of slightly-drunk 18-year-olds whilst Monki closed the Main Arena with her own powerful set.

Spending time with your friends, great food and great music - Sunday evening defined Latitude Festival in the end. Tomorrow will be a late morning.
