Trio will play Islington Academy on July 15
Yeah Yeah Yeahs will play a one-off gig at London’s Islington Academy prior to their appearance at Latitude Festival.
The band will perform at the 800-capacity venue in north London on July 15 prior to their Latitude appearance on July 20. Tickets for the gig go on sale this Friday (June 21) at 9am. The gig will mark Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ first London appearance since they curated ATP I’ll Be Your Mirror at Alexandra Palace in May. The band released their fourth studio album ‘Mosquito’ earlier this year.
Latitude will take place July 19-21 at Henham Park in Southwold, Suffolk. Bloc Party will headline the Obelisk Main Stage on the Friday, supporting the release of their fourth album ‘Four’. Kraftwerk will headline Saturday, with a 3D show that organiser Melvin Benn described as “the best of what we saw at Tate Modern” in reference to their shows at the London art gallery earlier this year. Finally Sunday will see the debut major festival headline set from Foals, who recently released their acclaimed third album ‘Holy Fire’.
The 6Music Stage will be headlined over the respective three days by Modest Mouse, Alt-J and Beach House. Other musical attractions across the weekend include The Maccabees, Cat Power, Yo La Tengo, Willy Mason, Beth Orton, Villagers, Calexico, Daughter, Mark Lanegan, White Denim, Jessie Ware, James Blake, Swim Deep, Chvrches and Laura Mvula.
