Headliners announced for Latitude 2013

BLOC Party, Kraftwerk 3-D and The Foals will headline this year's Latitude Festival in July.

The Maccabees and Hot Chip will join then in the Obelisk Arena, while Modest Mouse, Alt-J and Beach House will play the BBC Radio 6 Music Stage.

There will also be festival exclusive appearances from Calexico, Cocorosie, iamamiwhoami, Mark Lanegan Band, Rhye, Sohn, The Tallest Man On Earth, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Yo La Tengo and more.

Yannis from Foals said: “Latitude is always exciting, because they offer a very tasteful selection of acts. For our band, it’s an honour to headline alongside someone of the calibre of Kraftwerk – they can do whatever they like, they’re unique and you know they’re going to put on an incredible show. Bloc Party will be fantastic headliners too.”

Other bands on the line up include Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Beth Orton, Chvrches, Everything Everything, James Blake and Jessie Ware.

In addition to the music bill, Latitude offers an unrivalled selection of innovative arts programming, with a line-up that reads like a virtual walk through the culture pages of a Sunday newspaper. Eleven dedicated arts arenas, stages and spaces will offer performances from a spectacular mix of artists across comedy, film, dance, theatre, literature, poetry and cabaret.

Tickets are now on sale, subject to booking fees. An instalment plan is available for fans who want to spread the cost of their Latitude weekend ticket between now and July, for full details head to www.latitudefestival.co.uk

It takes place at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk, from July 18th to 21st.
