Line up for 2021 Latitude festival announced

The line-up for this year's 2021 Latitude festival at Henham Park in Suffolk has been announced.

Headliners include Wolf Alice, Chemical Brothers, Bastille, Bombay Bicycle Club, Bill Bailey, Katherine Ryan, Jo Brand and Reginald D.

Latitude earmarked Wolf Alice as a headline act as far back as 2013 when they played the Lake Stage.

Wolf Alice said: “Eight years, several horrendous haircuts, three albums and we are back but this time we are headlining ;) What an honour.”

Brit Award winners Bastille also make their debut as Sunday co-headliners. The cinematic performance will see the band close Latitude with ReOrchestrated, the show will see the band reprise a selection of songs from their three UK Top 10 studio albums: Bad Blood, Wild World and Doom Days.

Bastille’s Dan Smith said: “We’ve wanted to play and go to Latitude for such a long time, so we’re really excited to have the chance to be there after everyone’s year away from gigs. It’s our only British festival gig of the summer and we’re thrilled that it’ll be at Latitude in such brilliant company."
