Latitude Festival has announced its latest wave of artists for 2018’s festival, which will be headlined by The Killers, alt-J and Solange.
Confirmed to be joining them today is Alex Cameron, who will be fresh from supporting The Killers on tour, Irish folk duo Hudson Taylor, R&B songstress NAO, and the Miss Youhit maker Gabrielle Aplin.
Manchester’s rising hip-hop queen IAMDDB will headline the Sunrise Arena off the back of her upcoming sold out solo UK tour. Also performing on the Sunrise Arena are future soul star Connie Constance, Porches with a trio of synth-pop albums, South London’s Phobophobes, soul sensation Durand Jones & The Indications , post-disco punk threesome The Orielles, and Late Night DJ sets from Object Blue and Willow.
And for the first time, comedy quiz show QI comes to the festival’s Comedy Arena, where Sandi Toksvig and Alan Davies will present a unique all-bells-and-klaxons edition, specially researched for the festival and featuring a celebrity panel drawn from the cream of Latitude talent.
Latitude’s diverse lineup of music, comedy, poetry, theatre, politics, film and workshops has made it one of the UK’s most diverse and inclusive festivals.
That means away from the music, festival-goers will be able to experience lakeside theatre, woodland comedy and independent cinema amongst the variety of interactive art installations dotted across the site.
