Ex-Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher says that he is "really looking forward" to headlining Latitude Festival in Suffolk this summer.
The 47-year-old will take to the main stage in the Obelisk arena on Sunday July 19.
“Well not only have I never played at Latitude before, but I’ve never even been there, ever.
So yes, I’m really looking forward to headlining the Festival on July 19th."
Among the other headliners are Cambridgeshire band Alt-J who will be appearing for the third time.
The band's debut album 'An Awesome Wave' won the British Mercury Prize in 2012.
"We are hugely excited to return to Latitude for the third time. Playing there has always been so memorable.
Latitude has always supported us, and to go from playing the smaller stages to this means it will be a night of celebration."
Cambridgeshire band Alt-J, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Portishead have been announced as the headliners for this year's Latitude Festival in Suffolk.
The festival at Henham Park is now in its 10th year and will take place from 16-19 July.
Alt-J will perform on the Friday night, while Portishead and Noel Gallager’s High Flying Birds will close on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
The likes of Manic Street Preachers, James Blake and Laura Marling will also take to the main stage in the Obelisk arena over the course of the three days.
Catfish and the Bottlemen and The Vaccines are among the acts who will perform on the 6 Music Stage.
“This year is the 10th Edition of the festival and we're celebrating with an event which, although it has evolved significantly from the intimate 4,000 attendees we started out with, I really feel has kept the special atmosphere and unique quality which sets it apart."
