Get set for the annual extravaganza of music, comedy, theatre, art and spoken word at Suffolk's Henham Park

Latitude Festival has announced another wave of acts for the 2018 edition of the festival, with tickets for the event on sale now.

Now in its 13th year, the three day event will be headlined by Solange, The Killers and Alt-J, topping the bill at the Obelisk area from Fri 13–Sun 15 Jul.

The latest announcement sees Alex Cameron, long time tour support for The Killers, added to the bill, bringing tracks from his acclaimed albums Jumping The Shark and Forced Witness to the main stage. He'll be joined by business partner Roy Molloy on horn. Also added to the Obelisk Arena lineup is South African singer songwriter Jeremy Loops, and Irish folk duo Hudson Taylor.

Other highlights on the main stage this year include Parquet Courts, set to release their latest, Danger Mouse produced studio album Wide Awake this year. Their self-titled single and 'Almost Had To Start A Fight / In And Out Of Patience' hints at great things. The upwardly mobile headliners in waiting Wolf Alice and the spectacularly talented Juanita Stein (formerly of Howling Bells) are also set to perform.

The BBC Music stage is headlined by James, Mogwai and Jon Hopkins, with The Breeders bringing tracks from their latest album All Nerve to the festival's biggest indoor stage. The much hyped Superorganism and Bristol punks Idles will also perform.

Into the woods, and at the Sunrise Arena, IAMDDB brings her self-styled 'urban jazz', with that stage welcoming the brooding post punk of Preoccupations, the thunderous rock 'n' roll of Japandroids and the art-pop of The Orielles.

Latitude Festival will have the best in comedy, spoken word and theatre too. Harry Hill, Bridget Christie, mischievous musical comedian David O'Doherty and a special QI live show are among the highlights, with the unique musings of Dylan Moran added to the programme.

If you're looking for something completely different, get in the audience for the live recording of a hit podcast. Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd will host their Reasons to be Cheerful, and Jessie Ware also brings her hit show Table Manners to the Speakeasy.

Latitude Festival takes place from Thu 12–Sun 15 Jul. Tickets are on sale now, check out the full lineup if you still need convincing.
