Latitude music organiser Jon Dunn said: “Also coming to the Obelisk Arena are one of Britain's most exciting new bands - Foals.

“Their sound has been described as everything from 'technical math pop' to 'dancey indie punk' and their catchy songs will have festival goers dancing on the Sunday.

“Now in its third edition Latitude has defined its musical personality. It's music that is interesting and exciting. We have great bands, brilliant artists and the music that I love.

“I'm excited with our headliners for this year's festival and looking forward to announcing further great acts over the forthcoming weeks.”
