Check out the headliners and full line-up below.
Why she’ll be great? In an UK exclusive, Solange will perform her first-ever headline slot at Latitude. Now over a year since she released the outstanding ‘A Seat at the Table’, she’s sure to dazzle at the weekend in Henham Park with her bold creativity and soaring neo-soul sound.
Saturday: The Killers
Why they’ll be great? Brandon and the gang are heading to Suffolk to headline Latitude for the first time, and sure to put on one of their trademarkedly huge shows. With a hefty back catalogue of absolute bangers, and fresh of their fifth consecutive number 1 album, there couldn’t be a better time to catch The Killers live.
Why they’ll be great? In 2012 alt-J played the Lake Stage as an up and coming act; in 2015 they headlined the Friday night. Now, six years since their first Latitude slot, they’re back to close the festival. With a possible premiere of new material, as well as all the old favourites, their headline show is sure to be unmissable.
