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.

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.”
