Latitude announces more new names including Katherine Jenkins, Mystery Jets, The Coral
Words: Ellie Ward
Adding to their previous March line-up announcement, Latitude festival today unveils more names.
Katherine Jenkins OBE and an unannounced special guest will join headliners The 1975, Mumford and Sons, and Fleet Foxes - as well as headliners within their own rights, Placebo and Fatboy Slim, for performances across the weekend of July 13 - 16 at Henham Park in Suffolk.
They are joined by a line-up that includes legendary Placebo in a UK festival exclusive to returning indie rockers The Horrors; from Scandi indie-pop darlings The Radio Dept. (another UK festival exclusive) to the inimitable former Velvet Underground stalwart John Cale; from the iconic Mavis Staples to the all-out party that will be Fatboy Slim on the BBC Music Stage.
Joining them will be Leon Bridges, Mystery Jets, The Coral, Beth Orton, Flyte and Simian Mobile Disco.
The BBC Music Stage will once again play host to some huge acts this summer, including Fatboy Slim, Jack Garratt, Loyle Carner and many more. Ben Howard’s record label ‘Hell Up Records’ latest mysterious signing A Blaze of Feather will debut in a special performance for the Latitude audience, rumoured to be Ben’s long term guitarist Mickey Smith backed by Ben and his band. The Jesus and Mary Chain are set to make their Latitude Festival debut armed with the hugely influential album 'Psychocandy' and the recently released 'Damage and Joy'.
