Latitude Loves… Sevdaliza

In our brand new Latitude Loves… series, we meet the hottest up and coming acts from the 2022 line up.

In our first edition, we’re chatting with Iranian-Dutch singer-songwriter Sevdaliza. Catch her headlining the Sunrise Arena on Saturday.

This is your first time playing at cinch presents Latitude! What are you excited for most?

After three years of not being able to perform, I’m excited to show my fans my progress and how I changed as a woman during the process of becoming a mother. It’s very special to receive instant feedback from your audience and fans. That’s irreplaceable.

This is also your only UK festival appearance this summer and your first one since 2018… what do you love most about UK crowds?

The UK has one of the most diverse and unique crowds, it’s been a while but the energy I’m receiving from the UK fans has always been astounding. Playing London again on my last tour was a good reminder how good the people from the UK have been to me in my career.

Are there any other acts on the line up you’re looking forward to seeing?

I’m curious about all the other acts and how they developed over the years. I’ve always been a big fan of Little Simz. Hopefully I can catch some of her show.

Your latest EP, ‘Raving Dahlia’, was released earlier this year – what song from the EP are you most excited about performing?

I believe I play the festival when it’s dark. The stage show we created for the song ‘Wallflower’ will be beautiful to watch in this setting.

You’re headlining our Sunrise Arena on Saturday night, what can festival goers expect when they come to a Sevdaliza set?

Prepare to be taken on a ride through fragments of my brain. With our visual team we have (and still are) working so hard to bring this whole concept to a next level. We want to touch all your senses.


Sevdaliza will play cinch presents Latitude 2022 alongside headliners Lewis Capaldi, Foals and Snow Patrol! It takes place on 21st-24th July in Henham Park. Tickets are on sale now.
