We’re excited to announce even more music and comedy names added to your Latitude 2023 line up, who’ll join the likes of Pulp, Paolo Nutini, George Ezra, Ed Gamble, Bridget Christie, Sara Pascoe and Romesh Ranganathan at Henham Park this summer!
Across the music stages a host of eclectic trailblazers have been added. Something for everyone would be an understatement – this is a mind-blowing line up to make you want to stay up for ever.
Thundering Liverpool four-piece The Mysterines join the Latitude bill fresh from the success of their debut album “Reeling”, bringing their solid and formidable live presence to our Obelisk Arena.
International psych explorers Flamingods will headline the Saturday night on our Alcove stage. Inspired by the disco, funk and psychedelic sounds coming out of the Middle East and South Asia in the 70s, they channel influences through a vision soaked in mysticism, positivity and sun-drenched imagery.
British poet laureate Simon Armitage and his ‘ambient post-rock’ band LYR join our BBC Sounds line up. A genre-splicing supergroup, LYR sets Armitage’s spoken word to intense, atmospheric arrangements.
Hot off the back releasing her anticipated third single, “In My Head”, Latitude is also pleased to welcome rising Irish singer Nell Mescal. Dirty Hit signee Oscar Lang joins the bill in support of his upcoming new album “Look Now”. Welsh five-piece punk band Panic Shack bring their witty lyrics and killer hooks to the festival. They crashed through the UK music scene with a tidal wave of ear-crunching noise. Immediately building up a reputation for their raw, unapologetic live shows and off-kilter songs. Los Angeles-based duo crushed will also make their Latitude debut this year with their 90s inspired dream pop.
Also joining the music line up is: Bleach Lab, Claud, Corella, Etta Marcus, Humble the Great, Jeshi, Jo Hill, The Joy Hotel, Katie Gregson-Macleod, Kingfishr, Mae Stephens, Max Fulcrum & The Win, Michael Aldag.

Also joining the bill is star of stage and screen Sindhu Vee. Vee’s growing list of guest appearances includes Live at The Apollo, Have I Got News For You, Would I Lie To You? and Richard Osman’s House of Games.
One of comedy’s most exciting breakthrough voices, Celya AB makes her Latitude debut with a show full of ‘sharp and observant gags’ (Joe Lycett) . Britain’s Got Talent 2020 semi-finalist Myra DuBois also makes a welcome return, as well as the audience’s favourite Latitude compere – David Morgan – who will return to host some of the best names in comedy.
