NEWS: First Latitude festival line-up announcement for 2016

Dates:  14th – 17th July 2016
Location:  Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk

Having celebrated its 10th anniversary last year in some considerable style, Latitude Festival once more returns in July to the beautiful surroundings in Henham Park.  And if its first line-up announcement is anything to go by, this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than ever before.

All three music headliners have been revealed – The Maccabees will perform their first ever major festival headline show on Friday night; the following evening, one of the very best American bands of the past decade, The National – in what will be their only UK show this year – top the bill; and Mancunian legends New Order then close out Latitude 2016 on Sunday evening.

In what is undoubtedly a scintillating undercard, other musical acts to have been announced include Beruit, Scots electronic outfit Chvrches, Anthony Gonzalez’s musical project M83, that consummate American showman Father John Misty, Australian indie-rock star Courtney Barnett, the continuing adventures of the marvellous British Sea Power, Candian electro-pop sensation Grimes, and Icelandic five-piece indie-folk band Of Monsters And Men.

The full theatre and poetry line-up for this year’s festival has also been unveiled, including performances by the Australian contemporary circus company Circa, the award-winning improvised theatre-makers and master puppeteers Improbable and Blind Summit, and celebrated poets Don Paterson, John Hegley and Hollie McNish.

Expect many more music announcements to be made in the coming weeks as well as exciting news about the comedy, literature, dance and science line-ups, and a wide range of family-friendly activities.
