The first acts for the 2015 Latitude Festival have been booked, including a number of artists who have been invited back to celebrate the event’s 10th anniversary.
All three headliners have been booked for the festival held at Henham Park in Southwold, Suffolk, as well as 10 other acts that have performed before, although festival organiser Melvin Benn is keeping tight-lipped over their identities.
He said: “These will be from the small acts to possibly some of the very big acts.
“I’m really excited that Latitude is returning for the 10th edition next July and I’m pleased to say all three headliners are already secured.
“We’ve got one act in particular who is someone extra special who we’ve been trying to book for years.

“Another of our headliners is someone who has risen through the ranks of the festival and will be topping the bill for the very first time.
“The third is someone who has headlined Latitude before, and loved the experience so much that they wanted to come back for the birthday edition.”

However, Mr Benn did rule out Latitude favourites Arcade Fire: “I’d love to have them back one year but they did a major European tour this year and there’s no way they’re returning next year,” he said.
The festival was held for the first time at Henham Park in 2006, where Snow Patrol, Anthony and the Johnsons and Mogwai headlined the main stage.
Next year’s event will take place from July 16 to 19. Tickets are on sale now.
