Latest Latitude Festival 2014 acts just announced

Following the recent news that indie rockers Two Door Cinema Club and legend Damon Albarn will headline this year’s Latitude Festival, new additions to the line-up have just been announced.

We’ve highlighted in bold the acts that we’re particularly excited about – let us know if our taste is good or bad!

  • TAME IMPALA | BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB

  • SLOWDIVE | DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES | FIRST AID KIT | AGNES OBEL

  • JUNGLE | DAMIEN JURADO | JULIA HOLTER | VALERIE JUNE | KORELESS | EAST INDIA YOUTH | KWABS | EAGULLS | FAT WHITE FAMILY

  • GEORGE THE POET | ELVIS MCGONAGALL | MARK GRIST | PAGE MATCH

  • LUKE KENNARD | ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER | THE MINERS STRIKE: 30 YEARS ON

    ...Definitely shaping up to be a slightly stronger year than usual on the music front, and we are looking forward to dancing under the Suffolk starts to this classic tune by Two Door Cinema Club:



    Tame Impala make their long-awaited appearance at the festival this year. The band’s psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock music is as much informed by The Beatles as it is beat poetry, Turkish prog and English folk. Both their albums Innerspeaker and Lonerism have won the Rolling Stone Australia Album of the Year Award and have gone Gold in their native Australia.

    Following this week’s release of Bombay Bicycle Club’s hotly anticipated fourth album So Long, See You Tomorrow, it’s great news that the festival favourites will be taking the penultimate slot on the Obelisk Arena this year. With the new album currently sitting at Number One in the midweek charts, the band looks set for a monumental 2014.

    The unmistakable face of the UK’s spoken word scene Scroobius Pip returns to Latitude. His spoken word career took off when he released the top 40 single Thou Shalt Always Kill, a droll rap about modern dos and don’ts, with Dan Le Sac. Sure to pull one of the biggest crowds at the Poetry Arena, don’t miss one of the leading lights in Spoken Word.

    World famous grand master of beatboxing Shlomo will be joined by his friends on stage for an unforgettable performance. Shlomo, who holds a Guinness world record for beatboxing has a mindblowing vocal talent for creating sounds, noise, music, beats, bass and breaks with just his mouth and a microphone.

    Anyone with a vague appreciation of poetry will not be missing national treasure and the voice of Radio 4s Poetry Please, Roger McGough, perform some of his own poetry at Latitude this year. President of the Poetry Society and a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, McGough has been awarded both the OBE and CBE for his services to poetry.

    We know Hollie McNish from a while back, so it’s great to see her performing our local festival. She is now UK Slam Poetry Champion and World Slam finalist. She has been commissioned to write poetry for the WOW Festival, Channel 4’s Random Acts and the BBC Poetry Diaries. Check her out if you’re going.

    ...If you’re going? Of course you’re going, it’s one of the best weekends of the year!
