Latitude Festival Announce Headliners for 2018
The Killers, Solange, and alt-J have just been announced as the headliners for the 13th annual Latitude Festival taking place at Henham Park on Thursday 12th – Sunday 15th July 2018.
The Killers will headline the Obelisk Stage on Saturday night, bringing with them their unique brand of rock/pop stadium anthems to Latitude for the very first time. Having released their fifth album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ in late 2017, Brandon Flowers and co are set to play recent tracks as well as their much loved sing-a-longs like ‘When You Were Young’ and, of course, ‘Mr Brightside’.
Another Latitude debutant, American singer-songwriter Solange will take the Friday headline slot in a UK exclusive performance. Beyoncé’s Grammy-winning sister received critical acclaim back in 2016 with her challenging debut album, A Seat at the Table, and she’s sure to get the festival underway in stylish fashion.
Closing the festival on Sunday evening will be indie outfit alt-J. Having first performed at Latitude in 2012, the band rose up to headline the BBC Music Stage in 2013, and then headline the Obelisk in 2015. Their second headline slot in three years is sure to feature the likes of ‘Breezeblocks’, ‘Left Hand Free’, and ‘In Cold Blood’.
Other acts announced for the festival near Southwold in Suffolk include the likes of The Vaccines, Wolf Alice, Rag’n’Bone Man, The Charlatans, and Jessie Ware, while James, Mogwai, and Jon Hopkins will headline the BBC Music Stage.
Latitude always has a vast array of comedy talent too, and 2018 is no different with the likes of Harry Hill, Tim Key, David O’Doherty and Bridget Christie all confirmed. Theatre and the Performing Arts will once again be in focus too, while the food offering at Latitude is going to be their biggest yet having joined forces with Street Feast and the Theatre Of Food.
