Chrissie Hynde and co. will play from their nine-album back catologue, including hits “I’ll Stand By You” and “Back On The Chain Gang”. They will play the Obelisk Arena on Friday July 17.

Also added to the Obelisk billing are White Lies, the Brits who scored a number one with their debut album ‘To Lose My Life’ in January and have since been in huge demand for live performances. The band return to Latitude’s main stage graduating from being last year’s opening act on the same stage.


Also playing are Flashguns hotly tipped new signings to Rough Trade and the Verve influenced The Chakras.

The new additions join previously announced headliners Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, as well as Doves, Editors, Magazine, Spiritualized and Regina Spector

Latitude, now in it’s fourth year is also jam packed with even more theatre, dance, comedy and poetry than ever before.
