If you are heading of to the Latitude Festival here are some of the main highlights for Sunday.

Obilesk Arena Bobby Womack - 1pm - One of the most influential and revered soul singers of all time, Bobby Womack's comeback album, The Bravest Man In The Universe, met with huge critical acclaim upon its release last year. It eventually won album of the year at the 2012 Q Awards, featured on several 'best of' lists and put Womack firmly back in the spotlight again, more than a decade after his last studio album. The record was co-produced by Damon Albarn who had got in touch with him to ask him to feature on the Gorillaz album Plastic Beach. Womack has since credited Damon with resurrecting his 50-year career.

BBC Six Music Arena Beach House - 10pm - Featuring French-born Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally, Beach House are based in Baltimore in the USA and have been transporting their listeners to another world since first playing together in 2004. Last year Beach House released Bloom, the successor to the acclaimed Teen Dream, wwhich as developed largely on the road between soundchecks and gigs. Intended to be listened to as a whole album, the expansive, moving record further develops the band's distinctive dream-pop and reveals a band at the peak of their considerable powers.

i Arena James Yorkston - 3pm - An early member of The Fence Collective, James Yorkston is a Scottish singer-songwriter. He signed to Domino Records more than a decade ago after finding fans in the late great John Peel and folk legend John Martyn and has since released several studio albums, including 2006's The Year Of The Leopard and 2009's collaboration with The Big Eyes Family Players entitled Folk Songs and last year's I Was A Cat From A Book.

The Lake Stage Swim Deep - 7.30pm - Birmingham boys making sun kissed noise, Swim Deep are an old school indie band with an eye on the big time. With shades of the Stone Roses and even Jesus and Mary Chain, they released their debut single, King City, last year and have since signed with RCA and completed a debut album. In the meantime, Swim Deep have been doing what they do best and charming audiences everywhere as they showcase their hazy 90s indie-pop across the UK.
