Today, Latitude 2011 has announced more acts confirmed to play at this year’s festival. Dutch Uncles, CocknBullKid and Dry The River are amongst the artists set to headline on The Lake Stage (Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively) which is, this year, presented by BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens. Local boys Fixers are also in and amongst the line-up on this year’s Lake Stage and will join fellow Oxfordians Foals and Trophy Wife at the festival.
Manchester’s Dutch Uncles recently released their debut album Cadenza (reviewed here on One Note Forever) and winning praise for their “Frantic rhythms, infinite guitar refrains and memorably loopy vocals”. CocknBullKid, otherwise known as Anita Blay, stared off collaborating with Plan B but has since fled from the shadows of others and into the limelight releasing her recent debut album Adulthood via Moshi Moshi. Pastoral young folk act Dry The River have a busy schedule this summer, not to mention an appearance at this year’s Truck Festival, and it’s easy to see why the band lately find themselves in so much demand; whether playing noisy, raucous alt-country, dramatic indie-rock or gentle, harmonious folk, the band always perform to the highest of standards.
Latitude 2011 already boasts an impressive line-up with main stage headline sets from The National, Paolo Nutini and Suede. Other notable acts previously confirmed for this year’s festival include: Bright Eyes, My Morning Jacket, Iron And Wine, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Vaccines, Caribou, Deerhunter, British Sea Power, Lykke Li, Eels, Everything Everything, Villagers, The Walkmen, The Naked And Famous, Gold Panda and many, many more. See the festival’s offical website for full line-up details.
