The multi-award-winning Latitude Festival returns to the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk, on 18th-21st July 2019 with an eclectic bill of music, comedy and arts, plus foodie feasts and family fun – it’s the definitive destination for discovery. In addition to the incredible comedy line-up, this year features an exceptional array of musical talent.
Famed for cultivating artists, Latitude is thrilled to welcome back George Ezra as the Friday night headliner. Discovered in Bristol, Ezra was supported by the likes of BBC Introducing back in 2013, and this year is up for his second lot of BRIT Awards including best British Male Solo Artist, and British Album. He packed out the BBC Music Stage in 2014, and being the UK’s biggest artist of 2018, Ezra’s sure to give a performance that’ll leave you wanting more. His baritone balladry has captured the hearts of the nation and his double platinum-selling second album Staying at Tamara’s has propelled him to superstar status. George said: “It’s no secret that I’m a big Latitude fan. I’ve been to the festival numerous times as a performer and punter, so to be coming back in 2019 as a headliner – five years after my last performance – is a real treat. The reception to my second album Staying At Tamara’s has been beyond my wildest dreams and I can’t wait to rock up in Suffolk to play the songs for everyone. See you there!”
Originally headlining the inaugural Latitude in 2006, Snow Patrol make a momentous return to the Obelisk Arena. The multi-platinum selling five-piece come backed with seven successful albums including latest release Wildness which reached No.2 in the charts last year. Expect festival-sized anthems with hits such as ‘Don’t Give In’, ‘Open Your Eyes’, ‘Run’, and the ever popular ‘Chasing Cars’. Snow Patrol said: “We headlined the very first Latitude in 2006 and we are absolutely delighted to headline this year again. It’s a great festival and has a special place in our hearts. We can’t wait.”
The ultimate Californian dream-pop sad girl Lana Del Rey will perform her first headline show since the release of her No.1 album Lust For Life in a UK Festival Exclusive. Ahead of her hotly anticipated sixth album which will be released this year, Lana revealed three ‘fan tracks’ to widespread critical acclaim. Latitude’s idyllic setting combined with Lana’s atmospheric and ethereal magic, will result in one of the many unforgettable experiences of the weekend.
One of the most influential British electronic acts of all time, Underworld close the Saturday night of Latitude Festival with a very special performance. With their timeless anthems including ‘Born Slippy’, the Grammy nominated Rick Smith and Karl Hyde have spent the last two and half decades headlining festivals the world over, directing the music for the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony, and most recently collaborating with Iggy Pop. The perfect band to bring the late-night party to Latitude.
This year’s line up is erupting with a diverse range of huge names, and trailblazers. The seven music stages will be buzzing to the eclectic sounds of Loyle Carner, Neneh Cherry, Sigrid, Tom Grennan, Cat Power, Khruangbin, Anna Calvi, Pale Waves, Baxter Dury, Walking On Cars, Primal Scream, Slaves, MØ, Gomez, Freya Ridings, Parcels, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Nadine Shah, Sons Of Kemet, and Julia Jacklin – with many more acts to be announced.
