Latitude Festival 2014: Five bands not to miss

Latitude Festival is nearly upon us, so to help you wade through all of the acts playing this weekend here’s our five bands not to miss.

Damon Albarn
The Blur frontman will be making his only UK festival appearance at Latitude – and it’ll also be his first festival headline performance as a solo artist.

The War On Drugs
With their third album Lost in the Dream, the band have finally started to receive the widespread acclaim they deserve – expect lots of woozy sounds and Knopfler-esque guitar solos when they take to the stage.

Hall & Oates
The yacht rock legends will be making an extremely rare UK festival appearance, and are responsible for some of the finest laid-back jams the 80s ever produced.

Yes, their name is awful, but the Swedish psychedelic outfit’s live performances are truly spectacular.

MJ Cole
The DJ and producer created some of the slickest UK garage and house tunes of the late 90s – no doubt the tent will be full of dads reliving their yoof and Disclosure fan boys.

Latitude Festival 2014 takes place July 17-20 at Henham Park, Suffolk.
