Latitude Festival adds Katherine Jenkins, Leon Bridges, The Coral and more

A whole bunch of unmissable acts have just been added to Latitude Festival.

Latitude has just announced another star-studded list of acts with Katherine Jenkins OBE to join headliners The 1975, Mumford and Sons, and Fleet Foxes. Katherine Jenkins will perform a special Latitude Festival debut on the Waterfront Stage which promises to be one of the sensational highlights across the weekend.

Torchbearer for his genre, Leon Bridges will grace the Obelisk Arena on Saturday as part of Mumford & Son’s Gentlemen of the Road Latitude takeover, bringing his gospel and soul hits to what will no doubt be a mammoth crowd. Also joining the stellar Obelisk Arena bill are indie rockers The Coral who’ll be bringing their psychedelic sounds to Henham Park, and festival favourites Mystery Jets will take to the stage for an effortlessly energetic performance full of old hits and songs from their latest album, Curve of the Earth.

BBC Music Arena will be host to a list of huge acts this summer with the newly announced Beth Orton and The Jesus And Mary Chain who join Placebo, Fatboy Slim, Jack Garratt and Loyle Carner.

Scandinavian wonder Alex Vargas, indie pop optimists Childhood, Hackney’s Flyte and the sultry duo Tender will take over the DIY Presents The Alcove Stage. The soulful Jade Bird, country pop rising star Catherine McGrath and soul-infused pop starlet Minke join the bill, alongside local acts Mullally, and Jesse Quinn of Keane and Mt Desolation fame’s solo project While The World Sleeps.

Bringing the evenings to a close on the Sunrise Arena, and rounding off the day’s proceedings will be radio legend Trevor Nelson and a storming DJ set delivered by electronic icons Simian Mobile Disco.

If that wasn’t enough, the festival is also promising a follow-up announcement on Friday 28 April 2017 at 10:00, revealing a very special guests who has previously headlined the event.
