Snow Patrol news & community since 2008. Snow Patrol Join Ed Sheeran for Another Secret Latitude set

Ed-SheeranEd Sheeran just can’t keep away from Latitude Festival this year. Last night (18 July) he played a second secret set, and was joined by Snow Patrol’s Jonny Quinn and Nathan Connolly.

Snow Patrol headlined the first ever edition of Latitude in 2006, so it was fitting for them to return for its tenth birthday, arriving unanounced in the tiny Other Voices tent alongside Ed Sheeran – who wasn’t on the bill either.

This isn’t the first time Sheeran’s teamed up with the Northern Irish band – he duetted with Gary Lightbody on a live version of ‘Chasing Cars’ a few years back, footage of which has reached over 2 million YouTube views.


Quinn and Connolly’s appearance has fuelled rumours of a possible secret set from Snow Patrol this evening, following Thom Yorke’s surprise appearance in the iArena last night.

Secret sets aside, Latitude Festival comes to an end tonight with headliners Noel Gallagher & The High Flying Birds, as well as performances from Years & Years, Manic Street Preachers and Warpaint. Check back with Gigwise for more news, review and photos.
