The first names for Latitude 2022 have been announced - here’s everything you need to know about it
Lewis Capaldi, Foals and Russell Howard are among the first round of acts announced for the Latitude festival this year.
Here is everything you need to know about it.
When is Latitude 2022?
The four-day festival takes place once again in Henham Park, close to Southwold on the Suffolk coast.
It will be held on 21 - 24 July 2022.
Who is on the bill?
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.”
The festival will also host names such as Maggie Rogers, Little Simz and James Arthur, and Manic Street Preachers, Phoebe Bridgers, Groove Armada, and Fontaines D.C. will also be playing.
Snow Patrol will 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.”
What other arts are featured?
Russell Howard will take the first headline slot on the comedy stage arena, after finishing his world tour.
He said: “Can’t wait to headline Latitude, such a brilliant festival and always has an excellent range of music and comedy.”
The arts bill extends to poets and podcasters and the Women’s Prize for Fiction is returning to Latitude for a sixth year, and will feature inspiring broadcaster Vick Hope and author of the best-seller The Authority Gap, Mary Ann Sieghart.
There will also be family activities such as model-making sessions presented by animation company Aardman and run by experts who have worked on the company’s films, such as Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run.
Attendees can also indulge in lake swimming and stand-up paddle boarding or retreat to Mind, Body & Zen’s sanctuary of calm with yoga classes, treatments, workshops and more over the weekend.
How can I get tickets?
Tickets are on sale now and the festival will run from 21 to 24 July.
