Portishead, the Leeds indie rock band and former Mercury Prize winners alt-J and latitude2015line-up_marchannouncement_26Noel Gallagher’s Flying Birds will all headline the festival’s Obelisk Arena stage.

Amongst those who are also scheduled to appear at Latitude 2015 will be Caribou – the band fronted by expat Canadian and dance music pioneer Daniel Snaith – young English musicians James Blake and Laura Marling, and those perennials of British rock music for the last quarter of a century Manic Street Preachers.

An incredibly strong undercard of music boasts Cumbrian indie-rockers Wild Beasts, the Nigerian musician and consummate band leader Femi Kuti who will be appearing alongside The Positive Force, the London soul chanteuse Lianne La Havas, veteran blues musician and firm festival favourite Seasick Steve and, amongst many, many others, José González, the Swedish indie folk singer-songwriter and frontman of Junip.

But Latitude is not merely about music, as the myriad of theatre, comedy, film, poetry, art, literature, dance and whole host of other non-musical activities that will take place across the festival will firmly attest.

And festival goers will also have the chance to relax in hot tubs and swim in the lake for the very first time this year.

Latitude takes place from Thursday the 16th to Sunday the 19th of July 2015 in its customary beautiful surroundings of Henham Park, near Southwold in Suffolk.
