More acts have been revealed for Latitude Festival, which will take place for the 15th time from Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th July 2020 at Henham Park Estate, Suffolk.
Firstly, Latitude have this to say: Despite recent speculation on Coronavirus, we are continuing to plan to make this the best Latitude Festival that it can possibly be. Until the time that the government tell us we can’t, we will continue at full steam ahead and look forward to welcoming all festival goers in July!
Joining Bill Bailey, and Simon Amstell to headline the Comedy Area is Jo Brand, plus there's writer, comedian, and star of Channel 4'S Riot Girls Sophie Duker. Newly announced music comes from Celeste who topped the BBC Sound Of 2020 and will perform in the Obelisk Arena, along with Rina Sawayama, feminist and punk band Big Joanie, songwriter Angie McMahon, and Australian alt-pop outfit Cub Sport.
Added to the Arts programme, there's celebrated author Bernardine Evaristo topping The Speakeasy literary line-up. With her historic Man Booker Prize win, Evaristo is the author everyone is talking about. Her critically acclaimed novel, Girl, Woman, Other was named as one of Barack Obama’s 19 Favourite Books of 2019 and focuses on the exploration of the lives of 12 different people – “mostly women, mostly black” – in modern day Britain. She joins Latitude as part of the Women’s Prize for Fiction line up in conversation with Kate Mosse.
Across the weekend, The Speakeasy will host a rabble-rousing range of established wordsmiths and emergent talents. Here Scarlett Curtis invites attendees to participate in a live edition of Women’s Prize for Fiction’s digital book club #ReadingWomen, whilst Empire Magazine editor Terri White will discuss her much anticipated memoir Coming Undone, and Sunday Times bestselling author, blogger, and host of the hugely successful Ctrl Alt Delete podcast Emma Gannon talks about her debut novel Olive with award-winning novelist and screenwriter Emma Jane Unsworth, author of the acclaimed Animals and forthcoming Adults.
The Listening Post, a whole stage dedicated to the diverse and creative art form that is podcasts, adds more to its already ground-breaking bill; announcing Girls On Film, a review podcast from a female perspective, hosted by film critic and broadcaster Anna Smith, with a very special guest to be announced.
