The Manic Street Preachers' Nicky Wire will be giving his first major solo performance at a north Suffolk festival next month.
The Welsh bassist has been added to the line-up for the Latitude festival, to be held at Henham Park on July 14 to 16. It will be his first solo festival appearance and only his second solo performance - the first was an intimate gig at the Hay-on-Wye literary festival on June 5.
Festival organisers have also announced a new element of the festival, the Lake Stage. Led by Radio 1's Huw Stephens, it will feature new and underground music from reggae to punk to traditional folk.
Gomez, Snow Patrol, Antony and the Johnsons, Mogwai and Patti Smith are among the main attractions at the festival, which is organised by Mean Fiddler and is being held for the first time this year.
The festival also includes poetry, comedy, theatre and other forms of culture. One unusual performer will be The Barefoot Doctor, who has treated celebrities from Madonna and Jade Jagger to Pink Floyd, and will be presenting a “travelling medicine show” using music to heal.
More conventionally, Manchester indie band I Am Kloot will perform, while the theatre tent will host world premieres of two brand new short plays from young playwrights Dave Moore and David Dipper, specially commissioned for Latitude.
