The first acts have been revealed for next year's Latitude Festival, which will take place for the 15th time from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th July 2020 at Henham Park Estate, Suffolk.
Haim said: "Latitude has always been one of our favorite festivals to play, now we are so excited to come back and headline."
Liam said: "Yes brothers and sisters, I'm glad to announce I'll be headlining Latitude Festival next Summer. LG"
The Chemical Brothers obviously didn't have anything to say. :P
Also performing over the weekend are The Lumineers, Michael Kiwanuka, Keane, James Vincent McMorrow, Local Natives, The Futureheads, Ibibio Sound Machine, Girl Ray, and Kawala. On the BBC Sounds Stage there's Charli XCX, Phoebe Bridgers, Marika Hackman, Joy Crookes, Inhaler, Pat Thomas & Kwashibu Area Band, and Velvet Negroni.
Charli XCX said: "I can't wait to headline the BBC sound stage at Latitude next year - my show is gonna be the most iconic party you've ever been to - swear on my life."
If arts is your thing, there's comedy headliner Bill Bailey, plus artist & author Charlie Mackesy, the legendary John Cooper Clarke, and poet Luke Wright. The Women's Prize For Fiction return for a fourth year with an exceptional panel of inspiring women including prize co-founder and bestselling novelist Kate Mosse, and Salon London present the brightest and boldest ideas from experts, authors and academics.
Bill Bailey said: "Last time I played Latitude it wasn't too bad so I'm quite looking forward to headlining in 2020."
Charlie said: "Latitude has always felt free, and open and kind, and it seems to transcend the ages. I never crossed my mind that one day I would actually be performing; telling the story of The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse while I draw"
Last year Stormzy launched #Merky Books - his own publishing imprint with Penguin Random House - for a new generation of voices.
