Additional music, dance and theatre acts have been added to the line-up for this year's Latitude Festival.

Belgian brothers David and Stephen Dewaele will showcase a new production with their band Soulwax for a UK festival exclusive, headlining the 6 Music Stage at Latitude 2016. The band broke the mould back in 1996 thanks to their mix of rock, electro, pop and punk and have made half the world dance since then.

Elsewhere throughout the weekend will be a UK Festival Exclusive performance by Shye Ben Tzur and The Rajasthan Express' JUNUN, which under the production of Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood brought the Barbican to its feet but it was really the hearts in the room that rose to the rooftops; an absolute must see.

Latitude is proud to welcome back Beta Band troubadour and one of Britain's most compelling singer-songwriters Steve Mason, electronic producer Gold Panda who returns this year with his new record Good Luck And Do Your Best, heart-on-their-sleeve performers Augustines, articulate folksinger Emmy The Great with her critically lauded second record Second Love, and the Americana-soaked Clean Cut Kid who will take a step up from The Alcove to headline this year's Lake Stage.

Late night party performances come from some of the most enduring names in British music. Established as the most successful UK garage acts of all time, noughties legend Artful Dodger; the 2-step hit makers responsible for propelling Craig David into the public sphere with Re-Rewind will light-up the Sunrise Arena, and the notorious frontman of national treasures Madness; Suggs, will perform a much anticipated DJ set. PC Music's super producer SOPHIE will be ramping up the party on Saturday night and notorious mashup DJ's The Menendez Brothers will ensure the last beats of the festival keeps everyone dancing on Sunday.
