Your first look at Latitude 2020 is here, and we’re ecstatic to announce that next year’s music headliners are HAIM, LIAM GALLAGHER and THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS!
HAIM made their explosive Latitude debut back in 2014, and this year they return as headliners for the first time in their UK history. The trio’s LA energy, sass and blistering exuberance make them one of the most exciting live bands around. HAIM are showcasing a new power and urgency in their songwriting with new releases including ‘Summer Girl’, BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record’ ‘Now I’m In It’, and the emotional ‘Hallelujah’. With themes of sisterhood and strength, HAIM’s joyous, harmonised guitar pop rock couldn’t be a more perfect fit for idyllic Latitude summer evening.
Latitude has always been one of our favorite festivals to play, now we are so excited to come back and headline.HAIM
LIAM GALLAGHER was unveiled as Latitude’s secret act in 2018 where the British icon gave a legendary performance, and 2020 will see the Rockstar give an unforgettable headline performance. Liam’s rise has been stratospheric in the past 12 months; his documentary As It Was, a second solo album Why Me? Why Not, and a triumphant sold out UK tour. His Latitude performance promises to be biblical!
Yes brothers and sisters, I’m glad to announce I’ll be headlining Latitude Festival next Summer!Liam Gallagher
For over twenty years 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. To this day they remain pioneers and recent album No Geography (which has 3 Grammy nominations, in addition to the 4 they have previously won) is packed with Latitude-ready festival classics. The band’s recent arena tour received widespread acclaim for its spellbinding, 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 finale to this year’s Latitude.
It’s not just about the headliners though. Other music names announced today include THE LUMINEERS, MICHAEL KIWANUKA, KEANE, CHARLI XCX, LOCAL NATIVES, IBIBIO SOUND MACHINE, PHOEBE BRIDGERS, MARIKA HACKMAN, JAMES VINCENT MCMORROW, THE FUTUREHEADS and loads more!
Experimental pop Queen CHARLI XCX is set to headline the BBC Sounds Stage. Her third album Charli was released just a few months ago which includes hit singles ‘1999’ and ‘Blame It On Your Love’, plus other much loved tracks ‘Boys’, ‘Boom Clap’ and ‘Warm’ which features headliners HAIM.
I can’t wait to headline the BBC sound stage at Latitude next year – my show is gonna be the most iconic party you’ve ever been to – swear on my life.Charli XCX
If the arts are more your thing, we’ve also announced comedy headliner, BILL BAILEY, author CHARLIE MACKESY, poet LUKE WRIGHT, #MERKY BOOKS, plus the return of the legendary, DR JOHN COOPER CLARKE.
Featuring over 20 stages and areas to explore, playing host to the very best in music and arts, stay tuned for even more announcements (and surprises) coming over the upcoming months.
