Comedians Sean Lock and Russell Kane are the latest headline additions to the Latitude festival bill, with four-piece Grizzly Bear supporting headliners Foals on the final night.

José Gonzales, the man behind the 2006 top 10 single "Heartbeats", will meanwhile join Grizzly Bear in the Obelisk Arena as part of indie-folk trio Junip.

Richard Thompson, who has an OBE for services to music and was named one of Rolling Stones’ top-20 guitarists of all time, will perform on the BBC Radio 6 Music Stage.

Lead singer of the Charlatans, Tim Burgess, will play in the Obelisk Arena, as well as reading from his book, Tellin’ Tales, in the Film and Music Arena.

Dermot O’Leary will leave his presenting duties behind when he hits the decks in Latitude’s beautiful Woods area, where he will play his favourite indie disco tunes.

Robin Ince’s Book Club returns for another year in the Literary Arena, alongside writer, actor, and prolific tweeter, David Schneider, with his show Is the Internet Making Us Stupider?

Louis’ older brother, Marcel Theroux, also joins the line-up, reading from his new novel Strange Bodies.
