Winner of Line-Up of the Year at the UK Festival Awards, Latitude returns for its ninth edition, taking place from Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th July 2014 in the stunning grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk.

Following recent announcements including headliners Two Door Cinema Club and Damon Albarn, Latitude is thrilled to announce the third and final headliner for the 2014 festival.

Having played two sold out O2 Arena dates in December 2012, Latitude are thrilled to announce that the third headliner on the Obelisk Arena on the Sunday will be The Black Keys. Latitude is especially proud as this will be The Black Keys’ first ever UK festival headline performance. Winners of last year’s BRIT Award for Best International Band and seven times Grammy Award Winners, The Black Keys’ most recent album El Camino has gone platinum in five countries. With a sound that veers between traditional blues, psychedelic and garage rock, partnered with an explosive and honest live performance, don’t miss The Black Keys, closing Latitude 2014 in style. .

Also confirmed during last night’s announcement were; Editors, James, Clean Bandit, Conor Oberst, Kelis, Lykke Li, George Ezra, Temples, The Afghan Whigs, Mogwai, Tinariwen, The War On Drugs, Parquet Courts, John Wizards, Dawes, Tom Vek, The Acid, Crystal Fighters, James Vincent McMorrow, Hozier, Teen, Hiss Golden Messenger, SOHN, Mighty Oaks and Ry X.

Melvin Benn, Founder and Creator of Latitude comments: “This year sees Latitude return for its ninth edition, with a sensational and diverse bill that once again really offers something for everyone. We’re incredibly pleased to announce The Black Keys as headliners, along with a huge variety of established and emerging artists, representing every genre from blues and rock through to world, indie, psychedelia, electronica and soul. Of course, it’s the combination of outstanding music and arts that makes Latitude truly unique, and we’re delighted to be able to reveal a whole host of high calibre comedians, theatre companies, poets, writers and other performers across the festival. I’m confident this is going to be the best Latitude yet!
