Latitude, winner of Best Line-Up at the 2013 UK Festival Awards and the UK’s favourite multi-arts festival offers the unique opportunity to watch artists perform new material before anyone else, and is a launch pad for many artists on their way to sell out tours and super-stardom.
Latitude are proud to reveal that Damon Albarn will headline the ninth edition of the festival. Recent headliners include The National, the xx, Florence & the Machine, and Vampire Weekend. 2014’s iteration promises to be no less outstanding. Damon Albarn, long known as the frontman for Blur, and the driving force behind The Gorillaz, is striking out on his own, and making an appearance at Latitude.
Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp and Swedish indie-pop pioneer Robyn, in a special joint-appearance as part of their Do It Again 2014 tour, the only opportunity in the UK to see the tour.. Up-and-coming sister act Haim are also inbound.
Two Door Cinema Club will make their first Latitude festival headline appearance. Billy Bragg and his band will be stopping off at Latitude for a UK festival exclusive performance plus the colourful and psychedelic experimental Swedish band Goat, who have a magnificent live show, which can only be seen at Latitude this summer.
Other names to look forward to at Latitude 2014 include one of the all-time legends of Memphis Soul Booker T. Jones, ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ Brit Award 2012 nominee Anna Calvi, Alabama native Phosphorescent and contemporary classical pianist Nils Frahm.
So much more than just a music festival, Latitude presents a festival experience like no other, carefully curated so that culture lovers can experience performances by leading artists from the worlds of theatre, dance, literature, film, comedy, cabaret, poetry, fashion, art as well as music, all over one weekend.
