Two Door Cinema Club

Two Door Cinema Club are set to headline next year's instalment of Latitude.

Scooping 'Best Line Up' at this year's UK Festival Awards, the team behind Latitude had every right to relax. On the contrary, though, it seems that the Suffolk event is eager to progress at every available opportunity.

Returning next summer, Latitude this morning (December 11th) unveiled the first details of their new bill. Headliners will include Two Door Cinema Club, who toasted the news ahead of their largest ever headline show at the O2 Arena later this week.

The band's Kevin Baird was delighted at the news: "It's really exciting for us to be headlining Latitude in 2014. Over the past 5 years we've made the progression from playing in the small tents to being close to the top of the bill on the main stage. Headlining a great festival like Latitude is obviously quite a big deal for us but we also feel like it is the next natural step. We're ready to headline. We're ready to smash it." 

Elsewhere, politically charged songsmith Billy Bragg is set to appear at Latitude, joined by the likes of HAIM, Anna Calvi, Phosphorescent and more.

Erased Tapes producer Nils Frahm is due to take part, while Marika Hackman, Son Lux and Scandinavian psychedelic collective Goat are all planning to hop along.

Tickets are now on sale.

Latitude runs between July 17th - 20th.
