Mumford & Sons are set to headline Latitude Festival alongside The 1975 and Fleet Foxes
Mumford & Sons are set to headline Latitude Festival.
The 'Little Lion Man' hitmakers will take to the Obelisk Arena as Saturday night's headline act in Suffolk's Henham Park in July, in what will be a UK festival exclusive for the band.
Speaking about their appearance in a statement, the band said: "This collaboration with Latitude is one of the most exciting things we're doing this year. Ever since we started working on Gentlemen Of The Road Stopovers we've really enjoyed curating line ups and sharing not only our own music but also sharing music of artists who we love and are listening to regularly. It's almost like creating a mix tape with a best friend, but instead it's a whole day of music, across multiple stages, with 40,000 people!"
Joining Mumford & Sons as headliners are BRIT Award-winning band The 1975 - who will take to the stage on Friday night - and Fleet Foxes, who will close the festival on Sunday and are marking their first British performance in five years with the UK festival exclusive performance.
Fleet Foxes said of the news: "After being holed up in the studio for a year, there's nothing we're more excited about than performing new songs and revisiting our catalog at Latitude!"
Other performers taking to the Obelisk stage across the weekend include Goldfrapp, The Horrors, Lucy Rose, and Glass Animals.
Meanwhile, the BBC Music stage will see performances from the likes of Placebo, Fatboy Slim, Jack Garratt and Declan McKenna, whilst the Sunrise stage will welcome acts including Temples, Sunflower Bean, and Honeyblood.
Latitude Festival takes place in Henham Park in Suffolk from July 13 to July 16. Tickets are available now.
