THE first Latitude 2014 festival line-up announcement will be made next week.
Now in its ninth year, the ever-popular multi-arts festival returns to Henham Park, in Southwold, from Thursday, July 17 to Sunday, July 20.
And music fans will discover on Wednesday, December 11 the first headliners playing the Suffolk showpiece next summer.
Latitude Festival’s official Twitter account @LatitudeFest confirmed the news yesterday (Wednesday).
The music event tweeted last night: “One week today until the first #Latitude14 acts are revealed…”
Tickets for Latitude will also be available from 9am on Monday, with a £50 deposit scheme in operation to help festival-goers spread the cost of buying weekend passes.
The festival tweeted: “We’re introducing a £50 deposit scheme for 2014, available Monday 9th December from 9am!”
Winners of the 2013 UK Festival Awards’ best line-up at The Roundhouse in London earlier this week, Latitude this summer featured headline performances from alt-indie rockers Bloc Party, German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk and the mighty Foals.
As well as cutting edge music, Latitude also offers a selection of arts programming, with dedicated arts spaces offering comedy, film, dance, theatre, literature, poetry and cabaret.
