This year, in a festival first, George Ezra has collaborated with Latitude directly to pay forward the opportunities the festival has granted him, as part of our longstanding commitment to supporting the next wave of new musical talent. George has chosen these exciting new artists to perform on Latitude’s Alcove stage on Sunday 23rd July:
Ella Clayton is a storyteller and singer-songwriter from East London, whose lyrical vulnerability is carried in the raw melodic edge of her vocals and mesmeric acoustic refrains.
Iris & Steel are a four-piece indie folk band, who blend classical training and love of folk and pop to create a timeless and original sound, carried by soulful strings and three-part harmonies.
Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis McLaughlin counts John Martyn and Villagers among his musical influences. McLaughlin connects community spirit with electro-indie to create a new, wholly inimitable sound that’s entirely his own.
We will also be screening George’s film End to End as part of the Sunday takeover. Joined by his best friends Adam and Christy, the film follows the musician as he embarks on a 1200 mile walk across the UK from Land’s End to John O’Groats, revisiting his musical milestones, while performing heartfelt acoustic renditions of his biggest hits. A joyous celebration of the emotional impact of live music, End to End is a love letter to the UK and its music, an idea at the very heart of Latitude Festival.
