19 July 2015: Manic Street Preachers dug deep for their Latitude slot and pulled out a dazzling set that impressed both life long fans and, now-converted, casual Manic enthusiasts. It was awesome. Check out our brilliant, exclusive photos here. 

The opening riff of 'Motorcycle Emptiness' has and will serve as an audible reminder for everyone present of how unparalleled alternative-rock should be orchestrated. With a dedication to missing member Richey Edwards, a plethora of smash hits and passion in spades. The Manics' slot had heart, soul and compassion - what else would you expect?
