The 10th edition of Latitude will take place July 16-19 at Henham Park in Southwold, Suffolk. Tickets are available from the festival website now, with a weekend ticket with camping costing £200.50.
The festival will also see performances from an array of comedy acts, including Jon Richardson and Jason Manford.
“Every year I challenge myself to build on previous summers and make each festival even better than the one before” festival organiser Melvin Benn said. “With the start of a new decade for Latitude, I wanted to bring something really fresh and new to Henham and I think we’ve done just that. We’ve added a whole new spa area, Solas, offering massages and treatments alongside hot tubs and installations, which will all turn into a late night party area for festival-goers to discover after sunset.”
Speaking about his upcoming performance, Noel Gallagher said: “Well not only have I never played at Latitude before, but I’ve never even been there, ever. So yes, I’m really looking forward to headlining the Festival on July 19.”
“We are hugely excited to return to Latitude for the third time. Playing there has always been so memorable,” Alt-J added. “Latitude has always supported us, and to go from playing the smaller stages to this means it will be a night of celebration.”

Noel Gallagher’s new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ was released this week. Yesterday, it was reported that David Beckham has agreed to feature in one of the musician’s upcoming music videos after Gallagher asked the footballer if he’d be interested during a joint appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
Last month, Alt-J shared the video for their new track ‘Pusher’. In January, the band played the biggest headline show of their career to date at The O2 Arena.
Meanwhile, Portishead recently reissued their 1994 album ‘Dummy’ to celebrate its 20th anniversary. The band’s Adrian Utley also revealed that the band members were “clearing our schedules” in order to work on their fourth album.
