SYDNEY ravers Jagwar Ma and exciting young beatmaker Flume will be flying the Australian flag at this year’s Latitude festival.
Winner of the 2012 Best Family Festival Award, the 2013 edition is set to take place from Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 July in the idyllic surroundings of Henham Park, Suffolk.
Headlining Latitude on the Friday will be Bloc Party, whose recent triumphant return to form has been welcomed by fans and critics alike. On Saturday, German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk headline, offering festival goers the very rare chance to witness one of the most influential bands of all time performing their highly celebrated 3-D concert. Oxford quintet Foals will close the show on Sunday.
Yannis from Foals said of their headline appearance: “Latitude is always exciting, because they offer a very tasteful selection of acts. For our band, it’s an honour to headline alongside someone of the calibre of Kraftwerk — they can do whatever they like, they’re unique and you know they’re going to put on an incredible show. Bloc Party will be fantastic headliners too.”
