A new host of musicians and comedians have been added to the Latitude Festival lineup, including rock band Snow Patrol.

The Northern Irish-Scottish rock band are joined by band King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, singer-songwriter Mahalia and spoken word poet Kate Tempest.

Comedians added to the Suffolk festival‘s lineup include former Never Mind The Buzzcocks presenter Simon Amstell and veteran American performer Rich Hall.

Who else is playing?

The headliners for the 15th edition of the festival were announced earlier this year as electronic duo the Checmical Brothers, pop band Haim and former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher.

They’re joined by Michael Kiwanuka, Charli XCX and Keane.

Comedian Bill Bailey was also announced as the headlined comic for the event which takes place in July.

Speaking in the wake of the announcement, Snow Patrol said: “Snow Patrol are thrilled to perform our Reworked set (featuring 14 musicians no less) as special guests.

“Having played the first ever Latitude in 2006 we were gutted that injury forced us to cancel our headline slot last year. Thank you Latitude for giving us another chance to make it up.”

Latitude Festival takes place at Henham Park Suffolk, from July 16 to July 19, 2020.
