Latitude Festival Announces 2021 Line Up

The line up for this year’s (cinch presents) Latitude Festival have been announced.

Music headliners include Wolf Alice, The Chemical Brothers, Bastille, and Bombay Bicycle Club, who will be joined by the likes of Rudimental, Fontaines D.C., Hot Chip, along with a raft of top comedians in Henham Park on 22nd-25th July.

Below you can discover some of the acts coming to Latitude this summer. Tickets, including day tickets, are on sale now.

Wolf Alice

Latitude earmarked Wolf Alice as a headline act as far back as 2013 when they played the Lake Stage. The band subsequently packed out the BBC Stage in 2015 and captivated audiences in the Obelisk Arena in 2018 with their charismatic, raucous yet poignant performance. Their latest single Smile, from the band’s upcoming album, Blue Weekend, is set to propel Wolf Alice to global superstar status as they take their rightful position as Friday night headliners.

The Chemical Brothers

For nearly three decades The Chemical Brothers have redefined the concept of live electronic music. In that time, their live show has evolved from underground nightclubs into the most in-demand festival headline sets. The band’s last arena tour received widespread acclaim for its spellbinding, mesmerizing electronic sound and multi-sensory experience – lasers, walls of strobes, gigantic moving robots, dazzling graphics and special effects. Masters of the late-night party, The Chemical Brothers will provide the ultimate Saturday night experience.

Bastille: ReOrchestrated

Brit Award winners Bastille also make their Latitude debut as Sunday co-headliners. The cinematic performance will see the band close Latitude with a ReOrchestrated selection of songs from their three UK Top 10 studio albums Bad Blood, Wild World and Doom Days. Pioneers of hook-heavy hits such as Pompeii, Marshmello collaboration Happier, and Quarter Past Midnight, the four-piece continue to cement their reputation as one of the world’s most captivating live bands renowned for their cutting edge shows.

Bombay Bicycle Club

Bombay Bicycle Club step up to co-headliners on the Obelisk Arena this year after playing blistering sets at Latitude in 2014 and 2011. The band released their swaggering comeback album Everything Else Has Gone Wrong at the start of 2020 nearly six years after their previous UK chart-topping album So Long, See You Tomorrow. Expect a joyous set filled with festival-sized anthems including Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You), Everything Else Has Gone Wrong and electric and unifying feel-good vibes.

Uplifting drum and bass hitmakers Rudimental play the main stage before The Chemical Brothers on Saturday night, while on the BBC Sounds Stage, electro-pop heavyweights Hot Chip will transport us back to carefree communion on the dancefloor, and the thunderous and apocalyptic Fontaines D.C. finally get to perform their highly acclaimed second album A Hero’s Death live.

Also coming to music stages across Latitude: Kaiser Chiefs, Mabel, Rick Astley, James Vincent McMorrow, Beabadoobee, Sea Girls, Maisie Peters, Declan Mckenna, Griff, Akala, Anna Meredith, Arlo Parks, Nubya Garcia, Shame, The Staves, Tim Burgess, Dry Cleaning, Greentea Peng, Dream Wife, Goat Girl, Working Men’s Club, Oklou, Holly Humberstone, Nadia Rose, Jc Stewart, Kawala, Lynks, Alfie Templeman, Billie Marten, Big Joanie, Lyra, Gracey, Sorry, Orla Gartland, Fenne Lily, The Longest Johns, and Willie J Healey.

The festival also has an incredible comedy line up with something for everyone. Bill Bailey becomes the first comedian to perform in the Obelisk Arena in the coveted Sunday afternoon slot, with Katherine Ryan, Jo Brand, and Simon Amstell also hosting sets.
