Speaking of being announced as a headliner for Latitude in January, George Ezra 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!”
Meanwhile, new additions Chvrches recently teamed up with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra to “bring together the worlds of synth pop and classical music”.
During a special broadcast to kick-off BBC Scotland’s new channel, the band performed ‘Miracle’ set to “living portraits of people and images from across the country”.
