Latitude has just announced its first round of artists this year's festival, and we cant wait for July!

The festival is set to return to the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk from 21st to 24th July, and it has been revealed this morning (1st March) that there will be headline sets from Lewis Capaldi, Foals, and Snow Patrol.

Other newly-announced highlights include sets from legendary Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers, indie heroes Shed Seven, and English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Freya Ridings.

Also among the impressive line-up are Phoebe Bridgers, Groove Armada, Little Simz, Self Esteem, Maximo Park, and Beth Orton.

The comedy stage will host the likes of Russell Howard, Tim Key, The Horne Section, Rosie Jones, and David O’Doherty. 

The full list of acts announced today can be seen at the bottom of this page.

For Snow Patrol, Latitude surely can’t come soon enough. The band, who headlined the inaugural Latitude back in 2006, were forced to cancel their headline slot in 2019 due to illness, and a special guest slot again in 2021 due to Covid-19. 

Their headline set will no doubt offer anthems galore, such as Run and Chasing Cars. They said: “We are so delighted to be back playing Latitude once again. we headlined the very first one in 2006 and we’re so honoured to be asked to headline once again. It’s one of the best festivals in the UK and we can’t wait.”

Double BRIT Award winner Lewis Capaldi will be making his Latitude debut as one of the UK’s biggest music success stories. Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent was the top-selling album of 2019 and 2020, breaking the record for the most consecutive weeks in the chart for any solo artist.

Foals are returning to the site where they played their first ever headline festival slot way back in 2013. They said: “We’re honoured and thrilled to be headlining Latitude this year. It’s especially significant to us as our first ever festival headline set was at Latitude almost ten years ago and we remember the rush of that show like it’s today; it felt like being handed the controls to a jumbo jet at 35k feet.”

Comedian Russell Howard said, “Can’t wait to headline Latitude. Such a brilliant festival and always has an excellent range of music and comedy.”

And in terms of food and drink, there’s plenty on offer at cinch presents Latitude Festival too. Street Feast makes a welcome return, ensuring festival goers can feed up, wind down and send their bellies on a world tour with cuisines from every corner of the globe. Theatre of Food, a fully immersive essential for any foodie, also presents wild cooking sessions, hilarious and inspiring food demos and, of course, the chance to sample the goods yourself. 

There will also be an exciting new restaurant with a diverse food offering, cooked up by some familiar faces.
