The Darkness, Future Islands And More Added To Latitude 2024 Line-Up
The Darkness, Future Islands, Lankum and The Vaccines have all been added to the line-up of this year’s Latitude Festival.
The festival will be returning to Suffolk’s Henham Park from 25-28 July 2024 and tickets are available here.
Also among the new additions are Jockstrap, CMAT, Waxahatchee, Baby Queen and Marika Hackman. They join a jost of acts including Duran Duran, Chic & Nile Rodgers, Kasabian, London Grammar, Keane, Khruangbin, Orbital, Rag N’Bone Man, Rick Astley, The Mary Wallopers, Reverend and the Makers, Picture Parlour, Mary In The Junkyard and University.
The Darkness reacted with typical enthusiasm in a statement: “People of the flat lands, we are returned to our home! Celebrate with us at Latitude as we project both the rock and the roll in outrageous quantities.
“You will sip finest faux champagne and nibble on vegan turnip burgers. You will wonder at our outrageous costumes. You will weep at the loudness of our songs. You will cry at the flashingness of our lights. And then you will retire to your Hopi Tipi, replete.
“What could be better than that? See you in the fields, thrill-seekers!”
John Taylor of the band said on announcement of their slot: “We are excited to be making Latitude our sole UK performance next summer. It’s a great festival, and it’s been a long time since Duran have been in that part of the country. In fact, it’s our first time ever in Suffolk. We are riding high on the reception our new Danse Macabre album has received, and looking forward to bringing music from that record, all the way back to our 1981 debut album. See you there!”
Melvin Benn, Latitude’s Festival Director, added: “Having Duran Duran, Kasabian, London Grammar, Keane, and Sara Pascoe leading the lineup at this year’s Latitude Festival truly epitomises our vision for a diverse and dynamic program.
“Each performer brings their unique energy and style to the bill, promising an unforgettable experience for our audience. We strive to create a space where art and music converge in the most extraordinary ways, and this year’s music headliners capture the essence of that vision.
