Winner of 'Line-Up of the Year' at the UK Festival Awards, Latitude returns for its ninth year from July 17 - 20 in Henham Park, Suffolk.
Following the recent announcements including headliners Two Door Cinema Club and Damon Albarn, Latitude is thrilled to reveal many more names joining the incredible line-up.
Tame Impala make their long-awaited appearance at the festival this year, and they'll be joined by Bombay Bicycle Club, the forever-popular 80s rock and soul duo Hall and Oates, and Slowdive. Latitude's the only festival that Slowdive are playing at this summer, so don't be fooled - you won't catch them anywhere else.
Returning to Latitude are Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit, Scandinavian singer-songwriter Agnes Obel, one of the UK’s most hotly-anticipated new bands, Jungle. Mere months after bursting into the public consciousness with their first single Platoon, they are building an ever-growing audience for their chilly electronic funk and were named on the longlist for the BBC Sound of 2014.
Singer-songwriter Damien Jurado, Julia Holter, Valerie June, Koreless, Kwabs, Eagulls, Fat White Family and East India Youth are also confirmed.
