Irish indie rockers Two Door Cinema Club will make their first festival headline performance on the Obelisk Arena at next year’s Latitude, their one and only UK show of 2014.
“It’s really exciting. Over the past five years we’ve made the progression from playing in the small tents to being close to the top of the bill on the main stage,” says the band’s Kevin Baird.
“Headlining a great festival like Latitude is obviously quite a big deal for us but we also feel like it is the next natural step. We’re ready to headline. We’re ready to smash it.”
Also making a joint appearance at the Henham Park festival from July 17-20 will be electronic duo Röyksopp and indie-pop pioneer Robyn as part of their Do It Again 2014 tour.
NME Award nominated sister trio Haim, who took the UK by storm this year, are also set to perform as are BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winner Billy Bragg and his band.
