Latitude Festival has announced its 2022 line-up, with Foals, Lewis Capaldi and Snow Patrol set to headline the Suffolk event.
The festival returned last summer as the first major UK camping festival to take place following the removal of COVID-19 restrictions in the country. It came after the 2020 edition was cancelled due to the pandemic.
Speaking to Rolling Stone UK late last year in Issue Two of the magazine, frontman Yannis Philippakis spoke of how the band’s new album revolves around their incendiary live sets.
“The hopes and thoughts that we had when writing the album were saying, ‘Can you imagine how good it’s going to feel when we’re all back together and hugging and dancing?’” he said. “For us to feel like conductors and the lightning rods for those moments, it’s more than you can put into words.
“Being back on stage reaffirmed to us how right it is that we are where we are and are doing what we’re doing. To hear people sing the lyrics back, it made us realise that all of this is stronger than something like a pandemic can break.”
In other festival news, Tyler, the Creator, Cardi B, A$AP Rocky, Dave, SZA, Nicki Minaj and J. Cole have been announced as headliners of Wireless Festival’s expanded edition this summer, while Little Simz, The Chemical Brothers and Jamie xx are among acts announced on the line-up of new Bristol-based music festival Forwards.
