Festival-goers have just two days to wait until finding out who will headline this year’s Latitude Festival.

Organisers of the event, which takes place between July 12 and 15, have confirmed the first string of acts will be unveiled at 12pm on Monday, February 12.

Now in its 13th year, the festival at Henham Park in Southwold has become a regular highlight for music, comedy and theatre lovers from the region, known for its eclectic line ups, picturesque landscapes and brightly-coloured sheep.

In the past, Latitude has seen such big names arrive in the region as Thom Yorke, Noel Gallagher and - of course - Suffolk’s own Ed Sheeran.

However the festival has also become renowned for being about more than just music, having also brought famous faces from the world of comedy, theatre and the arts to the Suffolk coast.

Comedians such as Bill Bailey, Tim Minchin and Dylan Moran have all taken to the comedy stage at the event, along with such multimedia names as Louis Theroux across its other stages.

For this year’s line up news, visit this website at 12pm on Monday.
