2015 marks a very special year for Latitude Festival. The 10th Edition takes place Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th July 2015 in the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk.

Ten years ago Latitude Festival creator Melvin Benn set out to rewrite the festival rulebook, showing that music lovers could also be culture lovers, by creating the UK’s first multi arts boutique festival set out to challenge the festival status quo.

Today, festival organisers reveal the music and comedy headliners, plus other acts and plans for a new era of the festival including two new areas, swimming in the lake for the first time in the festival’s history and hot tubs where Latitude audiences can soak up the atmosphere of the idyllic site. Alt J, Portishead and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline.
