Latitude Festival has announced the line up for their twelfth edition, which takes place on Thursday 13th – Sunday 16th July 2017 in the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk.
THE 1975 // MUMFORD & SONS // FLEET FOXES
Fresh from their Best British Group win at the BRIT Awards and two sold-out nights at the O2 Arena, The 1975 will headline Friday night at Latitude, bringing with them a remarkable stage set up and a fiercely dedicated fan base. Following last year’s critically acclaimed No.1 album I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, the Manchester outfit have gone from strength to strength over the last four years, going on to sell out arenas across the world since first performing on The Lake Stage back in 2013.
Mumford & Sons will take to the Obelisk Arena as Saturday night headliners in a UK Festival Exclusive. The Grammy Award winners will be bringing their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover to Henham Park, presenting their personally curated Saturday line up of some of today’s biggest new bands, before bringing the night to a close with an unmissable headline performance.
Mumford & Sons said:
"This collaboration with Latitude is one of the most exciting things we're doing this year. Ever since we started working on Gentlemen Of The Road Stopovers we've really enjoyed curating line ups and sharing not only our own music but also sharing music of artists who we love and are listening to regularly. It's almost like creating a mix tape with a best friend, but instead it's a whole day of music, across multiple stages, with 40,000 people!”
Fleet Foxes make their Latitude debut this July in a UK Festival Exclusive, as they headline The Obelisk Arena on Sunday. Returning from a hiatus and armed with a platinum debut album, their first British performance in five years will no doubt make for a memorable end to the weekend.
Melvin Benn, founder and creator of Latitude Festival commented:
“Following the incredible success of our eleventh edition last year, we had set the bar high for this year’s festival. The 1975 have more than proven themselves over the past year and I’m thrilled to give them a well-deserved headline slot. Mumford & Sons have chosen Latitude as the only stop in the UK for their Gentlemen of the Road Takeover, and Fleet Foxes’ will headline their only UK appearance at a festival this year. Latitude 2017 is already simply unmissable.”
