First Aid Kit confirmed, not headlining but it’s a UK exclusive. Playing on the Saturday according to the email they’ve sent 

Don't worry everyone, turns out the first two headliners are shit because they've spent most of their budget on Radiohead

It's without a doubt the most welcoming and varied audience I've seen at a festival, I've gone every year since I was 10 and always loved it.  Also my (almost) final prediction is  Friday -

well then, bastille and capaldi to headline - snow patrol sunday afternoon

 

I can't believe what I'm seeing. For the first time, I'm so underwhelmed that all the hype has instantly gone...

What a poor first announcement. Can't think of many acts I'd dislike more than the three announced. Was so happy with HAIM and the chemical brothers last year (I do like LG but I'd have been seeing him elsewhere anyway). Massive letdown for me personally.

any other festivals have chems for 2020? seems like losing them is a 100% guarantee of a shit lineup at this rate

You know what though, I'm still booking, screw it. I'm still a HUGE fan of Snow Patrol so I'm really glad they are there, and there's still got to be other stages that will hold MUCH better acts than Lewis Capaldi. I know people (YOUNG people) like him and he's on the rise, but for headlining position, 1 album release to date just doesn't cut that for me.

Looks like they’re not returning for any U.K. fests next summer, however they’ve been announced for some European fests next summer again I think so shows they’re still about. Hopefully means a big London show or tour is more likely.

What a massive downgrade those headliners are though, wow

I'm happy with Bastille and can give or take LC, I do think people need to realise these are 3 acts out of around 100 on the music stages do there will undoubtedly be more to it. I'm looking forward to seeing what's added too, namely the Sunday headliner who I think will be female - my rough guess will be someone along the lines of Dua Lipa, Lorde or Billie Eilish

Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish are both too big for Latitude now. Lorde isn’t a bad shout for headlining Latitude sometime in the near future, but chances are it’s just gonna be Liam G as he’s still doing festivals next year.

My other thought is that Wolf Alice will headline and then Chemical Brothers will do a closing set like Underworld in 2019, I think they could get LG whenever they liked so we could see him another time instead but I think they've been trying to get Chems since the start so wouldn't give up on them without a fight

I don't know how much pressure they're under to deliver a female headliner given the criticism Reading + Leeds had this year. I think Lorde is a shout if she releases her album next year as expected, or Wolf Alice would be brilliant.

These headliners are pretty weak. Really sad haim isn’t back as I thought this year’s line up looked really good fun.

Bastille is probably the best headliner for me out of the three but it’s the best out of a bad bunch of headliners.

Dua Lipa is no bigger than Capaldi I don’t think. Certainly not Liam or Killers, but granted they were both exceptionally large for the fest.

I think they’ll have a female headliner. When they’ve been so focused on that aspect they bumped Solange up to headline, I can’t see them deciding there’s no point anymore and booking Bastille instead.

Including 2020 they've had 3 years in a row of having at least 1 female headliner and have always had prevalent headliners featuring at least one woman such as Florence and the Machine, Lana Del Rey, Portishead, New Order and Grace Jones so there's no reason not to be, especially when it's Festival Republic and they've got a lot of bad press before for lack of women in lineups, there was an article last year stating how Latitude was the best for gender diversity in the lineup. I'm just working out who could do it that's an ideal size. I'd only suggested Dua or Billie as they're lacking the 'big' act such as Killers and Mumford so I think the final headliner could be it

Such a disappointing announcement yesterday. To go from those three headliners this year, to what they have announced is a shame.

Those acts could still be on for all we know so we need to hold out a little hope I think - I do find it funny though how lots of people calling last years headliners poor are now saying the same for this years, some people will never be happy! 😂

Flaming Lips just announced show in Aylesbury on the Wednesday - adding them would be a guaranteed purchase for me!

Definitely in the running, who else are we hoping for? My ideal additions would be Madness, Chic/Nile Rodgers, Johnny Marr and Mabel

Ok so my predictions potentially for other headliners are Chvrches, Wolf Alice and Lorde. I'd love Phoebe Bridgers, Charli XCX, Christine and the Queens, Two Door Cinema Club, Michael Kiwanuka and Royal Blood  on the line up.

I think Charli XCX and Michael Kiwanuka will be back from this year, Chvrches will headline one day but I fear as they subbed in 2019 its too soon for them to play again, I'm interested to see how much of the lineup passes over as a whole because I thought all the headliners would when only SP did

They're confirmed to headline WOMAD that weekend.

Don't think it's on an exclusive, but it takes one of the days out of the equation.
