Curating the whole day at Latitude, expect to see some of today’s biggest live bands alongside the hottest new talent in the world today.
Gentlemen of the Road’s Stopovers have taken place all over the US and the UK and pride themselves on putting a spotlight on towns and cities that work together as a community but aren’t regular touring destinations. Southwold’s beautiful Henham Park is no exception to the rule and Latitude shares Gentlemen of the Road’s community spirit and ethos.
Speaking about the collaboration Mumford & Sons said, ‘This collaboration with Latitude is one of the most exciting things we’re doing this year.
‘Ever since we started working on Gentlemen of The Road Stopovers we’ve really enjoyed curating line-ups and sharing not only our own, but also sharing music of artists who we love and are listening to regularly.
‘It’s almost like creating a mix tape for a best friend, but instead it’s a whole day of music, across multiple stages, with 40,000 people!’
Announced for the Saturday and joining Mumford & Sons so far are Glass Animals, who bring their energetic live show and tracks from their sophomore album, ‘How To Be A Human Being’.
Fleet Foxes have also announced their return with a headline set at 2017’s Latitude festival. The band make their debut at the Suffolk event this July, performing their first UK gig in five years, with their third album Ylajali on the horizon.
The group, who rose to fame with their landmark Americana album Fleet Foxes in 2006, are also joined on the bill by the 1975, who headline on Friday night. The pop outfit first performed the event in 2013, playing a set at The Lake Stage. They return this year having recently won a Brit award for best British group.
