Fresh from releasing the long-awaited part one of her album, LOVE last week, MARINA will be filling the Obelisk Arena with glam pop and melancholic ballads. Also, added to the Obelisk Arena are hotly-tipped dreamy alt-rock London trio, PALACE, whose second album ‘Life’ will be ready just in time for you at Latitude.

In the heavenly enclaves of the Sunrise Arena will be offering up an eclectic offering to satisfy all music palettes.  Nigerian born ADEKUNLE GOLD will get your feet moving to his Billboard topping debut album, ‘Gold’, filled with bountiful beats and infectious melodies. Whist, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne’s PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS will engulf you with waves upon wave of gorgeously sludgy acid rock, psych metal.

Prepare for your heartstrings to be well and truly plucked as BEN FOLDS & A PIANO will be giving a very unique performance on The Waterfront Stage. Whilst, in the Music & Film Arena you can immerse yourself in a rare live appearance from psychedelic pop group WHYTE HORSES with special guests, a moving performance from PENGUIN CAFE in aide of Greenpeace’s Support The Arctic Campaign and much more.

For all you lovers of late nights at Latitude we’ve got you covered as GUILTY PLEASURES, BUTTONED DOWN DISCO, THE MASSAOKE BAND, and RAVE KARAOKE are all coming back for Latitude 2019.

The Lake Stage is going to be packed to the brim with the very best in new talent handpicked by BBC Radio 1’s ultimate tastemaker Huw Stephens. Liverpool four-piece SHE DREW THE GUN will headline the stage with their enchanting psych pop and will be joined by indie punks MARTHA plus SELF ESTEEM, INDOOR PETS, CELESTE and many more.

I am thrilled with the line up for this year’s Lake stage at Latitude. It’s been such a joy to see artists including Idles, The 1975, Cate Le Bon, The xx, Slaves and Sam Smith play the stage, among so many other incredible music makers. Programming the Lake Stage is an absolute joy, as those at Latitude always are keen to hear something new and special

The last time I did Latitude, I saw Grace Jones live, hugged trees at 1.30 in the morning and had breakfast with Sir Peter Blake. The bar’s pretty high
