Joining the artists on the bill are the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Hot Chip, Fontaines D.C, Arlo Parks, Beabadoobee, Declan Mckenna, Sea Girls, Tim Burgess and more.

The legend that is Bill Bailey also becomes the first comedian to perform on the main stage in the coveted Sunday afternoon slot, where he'll bring his trademark blend of satire and surrealism, stories and dismantled jokes, crowd sing-alongs, weird instruments and musical showstoppers.

Other comedians joining the Strictly Come Dancing winner at the festival include fellow headliner Jo Brand, Kathrine Ryan, Simon Amstell, Reginald D Hunter and more.

Wolf Alice said of the news: “8 years, several horrendous haircuts, three albums and we are back but this time we are headlining ;) What an honour".

Bastille’s Dan Smith said,“We’ve wanted to play and go to Latitude for such a long time, so we’re really excited to have the chance to be there after everyone’s year away from gigs. It’s our only British festival gig of the summer and we’re thrilled that it’ll be at Latitude in such brilliant company”.

Bill Bailey said: "I am beyond excited to be performing at Latitude 2021. This is a fantastic festival which I have loved for many years, and to get to perform on the main stage is a great thrill. It recalls, for me, indelible memories of headlining at Sonisphere in 2011 in front of 65,000 metal fans, so I say, bring it on!”
