“I’m thrilled to announce the first acts for Latitude 2016,” founder Melvin Benn exclaims. “The Maccabees, The National, and New Order headlining the music, coupled with the theatre and poetry bill looking stronger than ever, ensures Latitude 2016 is already simply unmissable.”
“Following the incredible success of our tenth edition last year, we had set the bar high for this year’s festival; we have a debut headline performance from The Maccabees to look forward to, which I’m really excited about and as always, the arts offering is set to be incomparable.”
The event is held at Henham Park in Suffolk between July 14th-17th. Other names on the line-up this year include Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, Of Monsters and Men and Grimes.
“Latitude is the first major headline slot in our fourteen year existence and the culmination of the year spent touring ‘Marks To Prove It’,” The Maccabees have said.
