Crowds have been dancing through dust beneath sunny skies as Latitude Festival 2022 kicked off its second day.
This year supporting acts are among those which have been most hotly anticipated.
Chaotic rock and roll from upcoming post-punk bands Opus Kink and Keg sent crowds into delirium on Friday.
Former Palma Violets frontman, Chilli Jesson also impressed, showcasing the latest from his eclectic solo career before delighting the crowd by finishing with Violets' classic 'Best of Friends'.
In the evening many people took on a scintillating set from Phoebe Bridgers or danced the night away to the groove of avant-funk veterans, A Certain Ratio.
Saturday has seen Los Bitchos bring their unique mix of 1960s-style garage, psychedelia and world music to the Obelisk Arena, getting thousands to wave their hands in the heat to their pulsating beats.
Indie rockers Priestgate also delighted crowds in the Alcove at lunchtime, with lead singer Rob Schofield doing his best Iggy Pop impression, throwing himself around the stage menacingly and munching on his mic cord.
