Another festival announced its headliners this week. Following on from V Festival’s news recently, Latitude revealed their headliners for 2011: Suede, Paolo Nutini, and The National.
It’s an interesting roll call. The National are a massively underrated and wrongly maligned band while if this vid we posted last week is anything to go by, Suede should see Sunday night off in style.
Not sure about Paolo Nutini though. Festival organiser Melvin Benn has promised a “greatest hits” set from the band, in an exclusive video interview in which he reveals Anna Calvi, Hurts, and Chapel Club are all playing too.
He’s also said he’s increasing the festival’s size while keeping the visitor number the same which means no repeat of last year’s crowd crushes. There will also be a new bridge over the lake.
Some of the bands announced so far (full list here):
British Sea Power
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Esben and the Witch
Fight Like Apes
I Am Kloot
Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan
My Morning Jacket
The Naked and Famous
What do you think of the line up?
