New Order announced as Latitude 2016 headliners

Latitude Festival has announced that The Maccabees, The National and New Order will be headlining at this year’s festivities.

Latitude Festival, has long established itself as one of the UK’s best variety festivals and in 2016, Latitude plans on having its best year yet. With theatre, comedy, music and any imaginable entertainment, Latitude really is one of its kind.

Founder and creator of Latitude Festival, Melvin Benn said:

“I’m thrilled to announce the first acts for Latitude 2016. The Maccabees, The National, and New Order headlining the music, coupled with the theatre and poetry bill looking stronger than ever, ensures Latitude 2016 is already simply unmissable.  Following the incredible success of our tenth edition last year, we had set the bar high for this year’s festival; we have a debut headline performance from The Maccabees to look forward to, which I’m really excited about and as always, the arts offering is set to be incomparable.”
