Latitude returns for its fifth year with one of the broadest line-ups around. With hundreds of acts appearing across more than 15 stages including poets, directors and comedians, this festival looks set to be an amazing event.
The Obelisk Arena boasts headliners Florence and the Machine, Belle and Sebastian and Vampire Weekend. Support acts range from Crystal Castles to Corinne Bailey Rae and although tickets are already sold out, a number of volunteer places are still available.
The World Arena’s headliners include The National, X and Grizzly Bear, however fans may be equally excited about support acts Noah and the Whale or The Horrors. The Film and Music Area will host a BAFTA Q&A session with Paul Greengrass, director of The Bourne Ultimatum and Bloody Sunday, whilst poets John Cooper Clarke and Wendy Hope have been announced for the Poetry Arena.
Ardal O’ Hanlon (My Hero), Rich Hall (QI) and Phil Jupitus & Friends Improv will perform in the Comedy Arena along with Russel Kane and Rufus Hound. Other music acts include returnees Wild Beasts and The Coral, along with Mumford and Sons, The Temper Trap, Frank Turner and The Feeling.
From the organisers of Reading and Leeds festival comes a smaller yet equally diverse programme, taking place from the 15th to the 18th of July at Henham park, Suffolk.
