Latitude Festival 2014: Bombay Bicycle Club and Tame Impala among new confirmed acts
First Aid Kit, Scroobius Pip, Haim and Robyn are all set to perform
Latitude Festival has announced another wave of acts set to take the Suffolk stage this summer.
Psychedelic rock outfit Tame Impala will be appearing for a UK festival exclusive. Their music is said to be inspired by The Beatles, beat poetry, English folk and Turkish prog, but the band themselves come from Australia.
Other acts booked to perform include ‘rock and soul’ duo Daryl Hall and John Oates, Scandinavian singer-songwriter Agnes Obel, multi-instrumentalist Valerie June and BBC Sound of 2014 nominees Jungle.
Exclusive UK festival appearances will also come from dream pop quintet Slowdive, Seattle’s Damien Jurado and US singer Julia Holter, while punk spirit will be served up in the form of six-piece Fat White Family and Leeds quartet Eagulls.
Musicians announced in December include Haim, Röyksopp, Billy Bragg, Anna Calvi and Robyn.
Latitude prides itself on its eclectic spoken word line-up. This year’s festival will hear poetry readings from Radio 4’s Roger McGough, national poet of Wales Gillian Clarke, Nigerian writer Ben Okri and former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen.
Latitude Festival takes place from 17 to 20 July at Henham Park in Southwold, Suffolk.
