Anyone else excited to see the Breeders? Seen Kim Deal play with Pixies back in the day but never got to see Breeders themselves. Latitude does have a habit of drip feeding indie rock royalty into the mix on a regular basis- JJ Cale, the brothers Reid, Thurston Moore etc etc, hats off to them for that.

They're great, saw them in 2013 I think. Catch them if you can.

Tell you what, with what I have listened to of the artists I haven't got a clue about, and with loads more music for the stages to come, I am a big fan of this line-up! Well worth it! Love Naaz and Fazerdaze too. Can't wait to see them both!

Plus, I seen Benjamin Clementine live in Bristol not so long ago. He is brilliant live! Just hoping for Nick Mulvey - or someone similar in his style - to show up now and it'll be a lovely line-up! Especially happy about alt-J being there; NEED to get down the front for them!

Something odd but just noticed after looking at the poster again; The Killers seem to be situated above alt-j and Solange on every poster, bill, etc. Is this a thing that's gonna happen now? So petty.

Yeah I noticed that too. Seems to be part of a deliberate marketing strategy on the part of FR to push one 'massive' Saturday headliner. If you notice the news this year has been all "Killers to headline Latitude" rather than previous years "this years Latitude headliners are...." so I guess it's working for them in that sense

The killers will sell tickets, solange won’t and to a lesser extent neither will Alt-J

Happy with that first announcement. Missed Solange at Glastonbury last year due to clashes, no duplicates with the APE days I am going to and plenty to try out on Spotify over the next 5 months.

A little bit disappointed with the line up so far... OK The Killers are (were) good, lots of anthems to sing along to, and I liked The Vaccines' first album, but nothing else excites me. Had a quick listen to Wolf Alice, Mogwai, Alt-J... not really my thing. I booked Lat as a Glasto replacement so I'm hoping that the comedy/theatre/other areas are worth going for, otherwise it's quite expensive! 

Out of the 3 festivals booked this year, this was by far the most expensive, and the least appealing. I'm not saying the line up isn't good, it's just not to my preference. I guess there will be more announcements to come? Hoping for maybe Sigrid, Rae Morris (although I'm seeing her elsewhere), and maybe something like Chic...

Yeah there is plenty more to come yet, looking at another 7 or so acts on the main stage and over 10 more acts for the BBC stage. Not to mention the Sunrise and Lake Stage which both have barely any acts on at the moment. Its been confirmed that there will be a special guest again this year and I've got a feeling its going to be Chic W/ Nile Rogers as they will be around. You'll have a great time regardless, there is loads to discover even if there aren't many names pulling you in at the moment.

Thanks for the boost of confience :) I noticed that IOW annouced Chic & NR  yesterday and was almost wishing I'd booked that instead (ferry prices put me off!). They would be a great special guest, as they were brilliant at Glasto, and would be a real feel-good sing along factor for a (hopefully) sunny afternoon!

There are already 16 acts announced for the main stage, surely they won't announce 7 more?

Just an average going off of previous years, give or take a few probably, but there's definitely more to come.

The usually have 7 acts a day on the main stage and 8 a day on the 2nd stage. On the sunrise it is between 9 and 11 a day and the lake 8 a day. The Alcove anywhere between 6 and 10. also some music is in the Film and Music arena, only Nadine Shah so far. If the Solas area is back then that's another 6 to 8 a day as well.

 

Plenty more to come!

Are tickets only available from TicketMaster at the moment?

Skiddle, Eventim and Gigantic don't have them available yet.  I know Ticketmaster are related to Latitude and I know they sent the tickets out so late last year some people didn't get them in time, so no way would I buy through them.  I bought through Eventim last year and was pleased with their service.  They are also giving the highest Quidco rate at the moment.

Liking the look of the lineup btw!

From the official latitude website under 'Information' then 'Ticksets'

Although i have clicked on the Eventim link and it says available soon. One person who is appearing has tweeted that they are going and tickets on sale on the 14th so might be available elsewhere from tomorrow.

Rae Morris (although I'm seeing her elsewhere)

Her new album is amazing, isn't it?! She would definitely fit in this line-up, especially as she is only doing 2 UK festivals so far this year and has most of her summer schedule free

It is brilliant! I'd never heard of her until she announced for Neverworld and have had her album on repeat ever since! I could definitely see her at Latitude, but as I'm already seeing her I don't mind either way!

Still hoping that Django Django & Nick Mulvey are there.

Nick Mulvey, the BBC Music Stage or Lake Stage would be beautiful for his type of music! :wub:

I'm intrigued as to why you rejected Wolf Alice given what you say about the Killers and The Vaccines? Strongly suggest you give both albums a proper listen!

It's not a guess, but i can't 100% guarantee it is the running order. So far the bands self confirming days match that list i have, so appears to be correct.

Are James really strong enough (or relevant enough) to headline the BBC Music Stage? Them + Solange seems to me to a pretty weak way to open the festival
