The next wave of performers have been confirmed for this summer's Latitude Festival.

American band Grizzly Bear, rock 'n' roller Duane Eddy and Tim Burgess from The Charlatans have all been added to the music stages at Henham Park, near Southwold.

Richard Thompson, dubbed one of the top 20 guitarists of all time will bring his Electric Trio alongside Indie-folk trio Junip fronted by Jose Gonzalez and London drum and bass quartet Rudimental.

Highly acclaimed comic and panel show regular Sean Lock has been added to the comedy line-up, with popular performers Russell Kane and Andrew Maxwell.

Comic, activist and writer Mark Thomas returns to the festival with a new show in the Literary Arena, while Adam Buxton's Bug, a show of music videos and a unique brand of sit-down comedy takes place in the Film and Music Arena.
