As the event draws to a close, Tom wants all your Latitude-inspired song suggestions, along with your memories of the festival past and present. Tracks can include those by artists on this year's bill - such as Kraftwerk, Foals, Bloc Party and Bobby Womack - or those from across its colourful seven-year history, like The Lemonheads, Patti Smith, Arcade Fire, Interpol and more.

Plus there will be a chance to hear live music from this year's festival.
