Discussing returning to the festival, The Vaccines said: “The last time we played Latitude, it felt almost transcendent. a secret gig in the tent, and our first back since covid, that brought tears of joy to our eyes! I can only imagine that watching the sun go down from the main stage as we play on Friday evening will feel just as special. We can’t wait to come back!“
The Darkness added: “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!”
Also set to perform this year are Khruangbin, Chic and Nile Rodgers, Orbital, Rag N’Bone Man, Rick Astley, The Mary Wallopers, Reverend and the Makers, Picture Parlour, Mary In The Junkyard and University.
Last year’s Latitude was headlined by Pulp, Paolo Nutini and George Ezra, with NME saying: “Latitude has long been a firm institution in the British music calendar, and even if the booking policy can stray towards the safe zone on the main stage, exploring the smaller stages at this 2023 edition proves that the future is set to be filled with challenging, inventive new voices that are determined to push music in excitingly strange new directions.”
