Fresh from their induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, they will draw on more than 30 years of transatlantic chart hits like Maneater to I Can’t Go For That in this exclusive UK festival appearance.

Tame Impala make their long-awaited appearance at Latitude in another exclusive UK festival appearance with their psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock which has seen albums Innerspeaker and Lonerism win the Rolling Stone Australia Album of the Year Award. Following this week’s release of Bombay Bicycle Club’s fourth album So Long, See You Tomorrow, the festival favourites take the penultimate slot on the Obelisk Arena this year.

Latitude will be the only festival in England where Slowdive will play live this summer after revealing they would reform 20 years after their last concert. Also joining the bill is one of the UK’s most hotly anticipated new bands, Jungle, who are building an ever-growing audience for their chilly electronic funk.

Other new acts revealed are First Aid Kit, Agnes Obel, Damien Jurado, Julia Holter, Valerie June, Koreless, East India Youth, Kwabs, Eagulls, Fat White Family, Kate Tempest and Band, Scroobius Pip, Shlomo and Friends, Reeps One, Polarbear, Roger McGough, Gillian Clarke, Ben Ori, Hollie McNish, Michael Rose, George the Poet, Elvis McGonagall, Mark Grist, Page Match, Luke Kennard, Attila the Stockbroker and The Miners Strike 30 Years on.

They join exclusive appearances from Damon Albarn, performing from his new solo album Everyday Robots in his first summer festival performance; Two Door Cinema Club make their first festival headline appearance, Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp and Swedish indie-pop pioneer Robyn perform together and there will be Uk festival exclusive appearances by Billy Bragg and his band and psychedelic experimental Swedish band Goat among others.

As well as music the festival will also feature performances from the worlds of theatre, dance, literature, film, comedy, cabaret, poetry, fashion and art.

It takes place July 17-20 at Henham Park, Suffolk. For more info visit www.latitudefestival.co.uk
