The band said: "This collaboration with Latitude is one of the most exciting things we're doing this year. Ever since we started working on Gentlemen of the Road stopovers we've really enjoyed curating lineups and sharing not only sharing our own music but also sharing music of artists who we love and are listening to regularly."

Fleet Foxes said: "After being hold up in the studio for a year, there's nothing we're more excited about than performing new songs and revisiting our catalogue at Latitude."

Also on the bill are Placebo, John Cale, Glass Animals, Loyle Carner, Jorja Smith, Lucy Rose and Benjamin Zephaniah. 

Latitude organiser Melvin Benn said: "The 1975 have more than proven themselves over the past year and I'm thrilled to give them a well-deserved headline slot. 

"Mumford & Sons have chosen Latitude as their only stop in the UK for their Gentlemen of the Road Takeover, and Fleet Foxes will headline their only UK appearance at a festival this year. Latitude 2017 is already simply unmissable."
