Lewis Capaldi

Scotland-born star Lewis Capaldi is one of the UK's biggest music success stories.

Set to make his Latitude debut this summer, his album 'Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent' was the top-selling album of 2019 and 2020.

It broke the record for the most consecutive weeks in the chart for any solo artist in the process.

Having played their first ever headline festival slot at Latitude back in 2013, Foals has returned to the Suffolk festival and will play its forthcoming album 'Life Is Yours'.

Foals said: “We're honoured and thrilled to be headlining Latitude this year.

"It's especially significant to us as our first ever festival headline set was at Latitude almost 10 years ago and we remember the rush of that show like it's today.

"Latitude helped us and many other great UK bands realise their potential."

Snow Patrol

Having headlined the first Latitude Festival in 2006, Snow Patrol is set to return to Suffolk after a 16-year absence.

The band had been due to headline in 2019 but were forced to cancel due to illness and Covid also ruled out a return in 2021.

Snow Patrol said: “We are so delighted to be back playing Latitude once again.

"We headlined the very first one in 2006 and we’re so honoured to be asked to headline once again.

"It's one of the best festivals in the UK and we can’t wait."
