Wolf Alice look ahead to this year's Latitude: "We are more than ready"

How long is it until Wolf Alice top the bill at one of the big summer festivals? One more album under their belts and the odds have to start to look good, right? This summer they’re riding his in the line-ups for both Latitude and Reading & Leeds. We dropped a line to bassist Theo Ellis to see if the festival gods are smiling.

Hey Theo, how’s it going? Ready to smash some festivals?
We are more than ready for everything the great outdoors has in store for us from Reading to Moscow.

You guys are playing loads this year aren’t you, how do you keep yourselves entertained on the road?
We have a carefully curated game called Truth or Mare. You can never choose truth, and the mare option is usually almost unbearable.

"Ready when you are, festival gods"

What’s the best thing about spending your summer in fields?
Hanging out with pals that you miss because of clashing touring schedules, watching people struggle to come to terms with what they did last night while you attempt to hold down some simple bass lines and forgetting what day of the week or year it is.

Do you have a favourite festival?
Reading has always been a special festival to me. It was my first one, and playing the NME Stage was a real pinch yourself moment. I am really looking forward to that one.

How does it feel to be creeping higher and higher up bills - it can’t be too long until you’re headlining, right?
Fingers crossed. Ready when you are, festival gods.

What bands are you looking forward to seeing this year?
Amyl and The Sniffers. Liam Gallagher. Post Malone. Shame.

Wolf Alice play Latitude this weekend (12th-15th July), alongside The Killers, Alt-J, Solange and more.
