The Killers, Solange and Alt-J to headline Latitude Festival

The Killers, Solange and Alt-J are set to headline this year's Latitude Festival. 

Set for July 12-15 in the grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk, other acts will include Rag'N'Bone Man, Wolf Alice, The Vaccines, James, Mogwai, Jon Hopkins, The Charlatans, Benjamin Clementine, The Breeders and Jessie Ware. 

Two comedy headliners will both perform at the Festival Republic-promoted event for the first time - Bridget Christie and Harry Hill; Sadler’s Wells return to present dance companies still to be revealed, while the first shows of the theatre bill include a  headline performance by Recirquel Contemporary Circus.

Latitude will also become the first major festival to do away with ‘fast food’, with the arena now catered entirely by Street Food organised by London’s Street Feast.

Elsewhere, the festival's Enchanted Garden will feature VR workshops with top industry creatives, screen printing T-shirts, trapeze and circus skills, and Family Socials which pack weekend mornings with family-friendly comedy, live music, dance and theatre. Meanwhile the Kids Area has live shows including AnimAlphabet the Musical, West End Kids, and Comedy4Kids, alongside puppetry, live music, award-winning children’s authors and illustrators, music tuition, bush-crafts, fun with food and the Wild Science tent.

The Inbetweeners Area will include music, digital, media and fashion workshops and the Access To Music Live Stage includes industry Q&A’s, how-tos on gaming, coding and VR, while the Greenpeace treetop adventures will offer zip wires and climbing nets.
