This year’s Latitude Festival is nearly ready to launch — with the first headliner being announced exclusively on at 12noon today (March 19)!

The acclaimed award-winning festival, now in it’s third year is set to run from July 17 – 20, at Henham Park Estate in Southwold, Suffolk.

5000 early bird tickets which went on sale at the end of 2007 sold out within a few weeks, so better be quick.

Latitude was launched in 2006 as an alternative to mainstream rock festivals like [b]Glastonbury[/b] and [b]Reading[/b] and its remit embraced not just music but also the best in comedy, films, books, theatre, poetry and cabaret.

Last year’s festival was headlined by Arcade Fire, [b]Damon Albarn[/b]’s The Good, The Bad and the Queen and Damien Rice and also featured stunning performances from Wilco, Hold Steady,
, Jarvis Cocker and Rodrigo Y Gabriela and band’s for the 2008 next bash will be announced in due course.

Promoters Festival Republic promise an even-more stellar line-up in 2008, building on the success of the festival’s first two years, with a huge range of activities and brilliant music across the event’s multiple arenas.

Festival Republic have also announced plans for a week of Latitude-related performances at London’s ICA in June, in addition to a [b]Longing For Latitude[/b] tour in the run-up to the festival.
