Scots singer Lewis Capaldi is among the first round of acts announced for the Latitude festival this year.

The UK festival, which takes place in Henham Park, Suffolk, will also host names such as Foals, James Arthur, Manic Street Preachers, Phoebe Bridgers, Groove Armada and Fontaines D.C.

The four-day festival will include food, music and comedy with stand-up sets from famous names including Russell Howard.

Foals, who are headlining the festival, said: “We’re honoured and thrilled to be headlining Latitude this year.

“It’s especially significant to us as our first-ever festival headline set was at Latitude almost ten years ago and we remember the rush of that show like it’s today; it felt like being handed the controls to a jumbo jet at 35,000 feet … Latitude helped us and many other great UK bands realise their potential.

“We couldn’t be happier to come back on the Saturday night to remind everyone and ourselves how powerful and euphoric live music can be.”

Snow Patrol will also be returning to Latitude after being forced to cancel their headline slot in 2019 due to illness and then their special guest slot in 2021 due to the pandemic.

The band said: “We are so delighted to be back playing Latitude once again, we headlined the very first one in 2006 and we’re so honoured to be asked to headline once again.

“It’s one of the best festivals in the UK and we can’t wait.”

Russell Howard, who will take the first headline slot after finishing his world tour, said: “Can’t wait to headline Latitude, such a brilliant festival and always has an excellent range of music and comedy.”

Tickets are on sale now and the festival will run from July 21 to 24.
