Latitude 2021: Headliners To Include Wolf Alice, Chemical Brothers
Latitude Festival will return on 22-25 July 2021 with headline sets from Wolf Alice, The Chemical Brothers, Bastille: ReOrchestrated and Bombay Bicycle Club. The much-loved festival – which takes place in the grounds of the picturesque Henham Park, Suffolk – is back after being cancelled in 2020 as a result of the worldwide pandemic. Tickets are available here.
The four headliners join an already stellar and eclectic line-up, with sets confirmed from The Staves, Rudimental, Hot Chip, Fontaines DC, Kaiser Chiefs, Mabel, Rick Astley, James Vincent McMorrow, Beabadoobee, Sea Girls, Maisie Peters, Declan Mckenna, Griff, Akala, Anna Meredith, Arlo Parks, Nubya Garcia, Shame, Tim Burgess, Dry Cleaning, Greentea Peng, Dream Wife, Goat Girl, Working Men’s Club, Oklou, Holly Humberstone, Nadia Rose, Jc Stewart, Kawala, Lynks, Alfie Templeman, Billie Marten, Big Joanie, Lyra, Gracey, Sorry, Orla Gartland, Fenne Lily, The Longest Johns, and Willie J Healey.
But Latitude isn’t just about the music – the Comedy line-up is headlined by Bill Bailey, Katherine Ryan, Jo Brand and Simon Amstell, while the Literature & Arts stage will feature conversations with the likes of John Cooper Clarke, Akala and Jess Phillips MP.
The Latitude website reads: “We are confident that Latitude will go ahead this summer. The festival will only take place if the prevailing situation in the UK is deemed safe by the government’s Chief Medical Officer and all necessary safety protocols are in place at the event. Culture secretary Oliver Dowden is promising a summer of fun to save sport and the arts, saying, ‘I want the country to have a summer of fun and I am working to achieve that.’” The event is currently scheduled to run at full capacity.
