Arguably Britain’s top ‘alternative’ festival, Latitude returns for it’s ninth year this July with perhaps its strongest healdine line-up to date.

Having already announced Damon Albarn and Two Door Cinema Club to headline two of the nights (17-20th July, Henham Park, near Southwold), it was yesterday announced that Ohio’s The Black Keys will also be performing.

Other acts announced include Mogwai, Lykke Li, Kelis, Crystal Fighters and comedian Dara O’Briain.

Speaking of The Black Keys’ addition, festival director Melvin Benn said: “This is a huge act. It may well be the biggest act we’ve ever booked at Latitude. The Black Keys have won seven Grammy awards – the album El Camino was platinum everywhere in the world. It’s overwhelming!”
