Gallagher said: “Well not only have I never played at Latitude before, but I’ve never even been there, ever. So yes, I’m really looking forward to headlining the Festival on July 19."
Alt-J said they couldn't wait to play the festival for the third time: "Playing there has always been so memorable. Latitude has always supported us, and to go from playing the smaller stages to this means it will be a night of celebration."
The rest of the line-up announced so far also features some great names, with the iconic Manic Street Preachers set to play tracks from throughout their long history.
Catfish & The Bottlemen, The Vaccines, Laura Marling and Wild Beasts are also set to perform at Henham Park, with a strong comedy line-up featuring Radio X's own Josh Widdicombe.
