New Order, The National and The Maccabees will headline this year's Latitude festival in Suffolk, it's been announced.

The festival gets underway on July 15, with Indie band The Maccabees taking to the stage on the opening night.

American rockers The National will become the first band to headline the event twice when they return for their set on Saturday night while New Order will close the show on the Sunday (17 July).

The festival at Henham Park near Southwold is now in its 11th year and around 40,000 tickets are due to go on sale.

I'm hugely excited to be bringing back one of our very first Latitude headliners, The National, to top the music bill at this year's festival.

The festival has grown a huge amount in its offering since The National last played with us.

I'm also particularly proud that yet again, we're offering the biggest and most diverse arts line up of any festival.

Latitude Festival still leads the way in championing the arts in all its forms, from spoken word to performance theatre.
