With a price tag creeping over £200 with fees, Latitude is a huge player on the festival scene, and as usual the line-up has the big names to match – but let’s be honest, the headliners are safe to the point of being dull. Fleet Foxes are by the far most interesting of the trio, and while there’s no denying people want to see The 1975 and Mumford & Sons, there’s also no denying that they’re both really boring. That said, step away from the headliners and there’s some excellent stuff on offer; Yorkston Thorne Khan bring their anglo-scottish-indian take on folk to Suffolk, plus there are sets from Divine Comedy and Grandaddy, and most intriguingly of all a main stage appearance from John Cale.  Latitude can also join the very long list of festivals featuring Julia Jacklin, Honeyblood and Kevin Morby. It’s not that Latitude looks bad, it is just going through an identity crisis; does it want to retain its alternative spirit, or does it want to be Glastonbury part two?

Alt-J, Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds, Portishead, Caribou, James Blake, Laura Marling, Manic Street Preachers, Jon Hopkins, Seasick Steve, Jason Manford, Alan Davies and many more announced for Latitude this summer. Book now!

The Lake Stage has always been the place to be to catch the most hotly-anticipated acts. Over the years, The XX, Metronomy, Everything Everything and 2015 headliners alt-J have all graced the stage early on in their careers. Handpicked by DJ and broadcaster Huw Stephens, expect just as big things from this year’s line-up in the years to come.

Headlining the stage will be the phenomenal To Kill A King, alongside synthpop maestros Prides. Others acts joining them are Formation, Sundara Karma, Aquilo, and Liverpudlian bands Outfit and Gulf.

Welsh rock group Pretty Vicious have seen huge acclaim since releasing their debut track ‘Cave Song’ online. Despite only having begun playing live in late 2014, their shows are already full of a raucous energy that will suck you in. We cannot wait for them to make their Latitude debut.

On the more relaxed side, Charlie Cunningham will be bringing his percussive guitar sound to Henham Park, while HONNE will exhibit their neo-soul stylings. Tipped by NME as an artist to watch in 2015, Neon Waltz’s sublime indie sounds will surely delight a whole new legion of fans.

Completing today’s announcement are Petite Meller, Eaves, Boxed In, Man Made, Clarence Clarity, and Clare Maguire. Between them we have every taste covered, whether you’re in the mood for heartfelt soul from singer-songwriters, or electronic beats that will have you dancing for hours.
