The arts-juggling Suffolk laze, Latitude Festival, has revealed the first details of what festival goers can expect.
Latitude takes place at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk, from 12-15 July. Tickets
are on sale now, priced £112 for adults, and are available HERE.
Once again, the three-day event will combine poetry, theatre, cabaret, literature meetings
and much more, alongside three stages of music.
will headline the main Obelisk Stage on Friday night, followed by The Good The Bad And The Queen on Saturday and
Arcade Fire on Sunday.
Other acts already confirmed include Wilco, CSS,
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and The Magic Numbers.
Jon Dunn who is curating
the music stages said: “This year will see the festival be more diverse, now we have the ability to stretch it out
a bit more and incorporate other genres of music including world, blues and a bit of jazz alongside the edgy, alternative
slant that Latitude has. We can be more imaginative and we’ll be looking to create exciting, eclectic, line-ups across
the many stages at Latitude.”
Music is only half of Latitude and organisers have announced
loads stages and attractions, including the return of the Music & Film stage, the Poetry Tent (one of last year's
most popular destinations), the Literature Arena, Comedy Tent and The Theatre.
Those already announced to populate the
various non-music spaces include Alan Carr, Moulin Rouge Cabaret, Stewart Lee,
John Hegley, The Paper Birds, Guilty Pleasures and Robin Ince Book
Club - several of whom helped make Latitude's inaugral year such a success.
Artists also performing at
last year's festival included Snow Patrol, Antony and the Johnsons, Mogwai,
Regina Spektor, Richard Swift, The Zutons, The Lemonheads
