The 2021 festival will run from Thursday, July 22 to Sunday, July 25 and is a week later than normal so it falls within the summer holidays.

The line-up announcement comes after the 2020 event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Latitude earmarked Wolf Alice as a headline act as far back as 2013 when they played the Lake Stage.
