Latitude is known for being one of the country’s more gentile festivals. With literature, poetry, comedy and theatre and dance stages boasting almost as heady a line-up as its musical arenas, the Suffolk three-dayer offers a break from the sometimes overwhelming musical offering at other festivals.
That’s not to say organisers don’t pay that part of the festival attention. This year’s line-up has just been announced and, while slightly erratic, boasts some big names. Headliners are Damon Albarn, Two Door Cinema Club and The Black Keys.
Elsewhere, Röyksopp and Robyn, East India Youth, Nils Frahm, Julia Holter, Mogwai, Marika Hackman and Anna Calvi are also set to play on the arguably more interesting and consistently programmed stages. Bigger names taking to the main stage include Editors, James, Afghan Whigs, Crystal Fighters, Billy Bragg and Booker T Jones.
Latitude takes place on 17-20 July 2014 in Henham Park, Southwold. More here.
