The 1975, Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes will headline one of the region's biggest music festivals this summer.

Organisers of Latitude announced the festival's line-up this morning, with the three big names being joined by the likes of Placebo, Jack Garratt and Fatboy Slim.

More than 30,000 people are expected to descend on Henham Park, near Southwold, for the 12th edition of the Suffolk festival which will take place between Thursday, July 13 and Sunday, July 16.

The festival's Facebook page said this year's line-up 'is set to be our biggest yet'.

Last year Maccabees, The National and New Order were the headline acts at the event which, in recent years, has also seen appearances from the likes of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Portishead, Alt-J, Thom Yorke and The Charlatans, to name but a few.
