More names have been added to the line-up for Latitude Festival held from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th July 2015 in the grounds of Henham Park Estate, in Suffolk.

The Film and Music Arena will host saxophonist Amy Dickson, Alabama 3, and Gavin Osborn, as well as filmmaker Doug Aitken in conversation before a screening of his new film 'Station to Station'. Plus film director Mike Figgis will be discussing his extensive and varied career including 'Leaving Las Vegas', 'One Night Stand', and 'The Loss of Sexual Innocence'.

On The Waterfront Stage Sadler's Wells will present a double bill programme showcasing performances from the Grand Finalists of the first ever BBC Young Dancer. Sheffield Doc/Fest will be celebrating both the art and the business of documentary making with an exclusive Q&A with Georg Holm and Orri Pall Dyrason from Sigur Ros, who have scored The Greatest Shows on Earth: A Century of Funfairs, Circuses and Carnivals.

Tania Harrison, Arts Curator of Latitude, said, "This time of year is always exciting as the festival comes together before July 16th and I'm pleased that we are still announcing artists and shows as exciting and important as Sadler’s Wells presenting BBC Young Dancer 2015, Mike Figgis on film making, and Georg Holm and Orri Pall Dyrason from Sigur Ros in discussion on their score of the new film 'The Greatest Shows On Earth: A Century Of Funfairs, Circuses And Carnivals' presented in conjunction with Sheffield Doc/Fest."

The area will also host Tate Worlds: Surrealist inspired Minecraft which will be part Minecraft buildathon, part surreal club night. Festival goers will get the opportunity to step into a digitally powered world inspired by the surrealist masters. Expect animated visuals, created in Minecraft and inspired by surrealist artworks from the Tate collection, which will provide the backdrop to an evening of music and making. A team of Minecraft experts will also be live on stage building Latitude’s very own dream landscape with contributions from the audience.

Elsewhere Penny Arcade, Panti Bliss, Le Gateau Chocolat, Twisted Loaf, Paul Currie, Rhys Nicholson, and Lou Sanders are added to the Cabaret Arena line-up, and Joe Wells, Tom Allen, and Matt Rees join the comedians in The Literary Arena.

Director Gemma Fairlie (Artistic Director of Tin Bath Theatre) and Director Neil Bettles (Artistic Director of ThickSkin) have come together to create Light the Fuse, a new company that charge everyday spaces and traditional stories with explosive visual and physical elements to surprise and captivate audiences of all ages. They bring their first production 'Full Sto' to Pandora’s Playground at Latitude this year.
