Lewis Capaldi, Bastille and Snow Patrol to play Latitude

Organisers of the Latitude Festival, which takes place between the 22nd and 25th July 2021, have announced their first three acts for the event.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic this year’s festival, enjoyed every year by thousands at Henham Park in Suffolk, had to be cancelled.

Lewis Capaldi will be headlining the Obelisk Arena on Friday night. His debut album ‘Divinely Inspired To A Hellish Extent’ was the best selling album of 2019, having spent 36 weeks in the top 10.

Saturday night will be headlined by Bastille, who’ll be playing Latitude for the very first time. Their latest album ‘Doom Days’ was released last year and landed in the top 5 on the UK charts.

Dan Smith, lead singer of Bastille, said: “We’ve wanted to play and go to Latitude for such a long time, so we’re really excited to have the chance to be there next year after everyone’s year away from gigs. It’s our only British festival gig of the summer and we’re thrilled that it’ll be at Latitude in such brilliant company”.

Snow Patrol will be making their triumphant return to Latitude on the Sunday. The band played the first ever Latitude in 2006, and they’ll be bringing their stunning ‘Reworked’ set to the Obelisk Arena.

Snow Patrol said: “We are thrilled to perform our Reworked set as special guests at next years festival. Having played the first ever Latitude in 2006 we were gutted that injury forced us to cancel our slot last year and obviously with all festivals cancelled this year were so glad to be on the bill for next year. Thank you Latitude for having us back once again. It’s a wonderful festival and we’re delighted to be involved.”
