Blondie and Foals are the latest music additions to this year’s Latitude Festival line-up, Uncut can exclusively reveal.
The bill for the festival’s third year is now really shaping up with Nick Cave‘s Grinderman project,, Seasick Steve, and the The Go! Team all confirmed to play the Obelisk Arena from July 17.
They join headliners Franz Ferdinand,Sigur Ros and Interpol, along with Elbow, The Breeders and Death Cab For Cutie on Latitude’s main stage.
Over at the Uncut Arena, meanwhile, we’re pleased to say that the headliners will be the ecstatic Malian duo Amadou & Mariam, fearsomely intense prog-punks The Mars Volta and, closing the festival, the beloved Tindersticks.
Blondie and MIA will also be doing the business on our stage, plus plenty more of our favourite bands.
