Latitude has announced the line-up for its late-night i Arena, sponsored by the i newspaper. Headlined by Zed Bias, Romare and Roy Davis Jr, the venue will be a showcase for cutting-edge DJs and electronic acts.
Bias, playing on Friday night, is a well-known garage and dubstep producer, who has worked with the likes of Jessie Ware and Rita Ora. He’ll be joined on the bill by a host of other homegrown urban artists, including Ossie, Shox and Lorca.
Saturday night will have more of a world music influence, led by Londoner Romare’s sonic excursions through African culture. He’ll be supported by Werkha, The Busy Twist and Mungo’s Hi Fi.
Roy Davis Jr is one of the daddies of Chicago House, and he’ll take to the decks on Sunday evening ahead of a more eclectic bill that will include Benin City, Tuesday Born and Russian-born DJ Anushka.
Latitude takes place between 18 and 21 July at Henham Park in Suffolk.
Main stage headliners include Bloc Party, Foals and Kraftwerk in 3D. Other artists on the bill include Hot Chip, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House, Grizzly Bear and Yo La Tengo.
