“I am delighted to be back at Latitude Festival in Suffolk, which is such an incredible weekend of sensory delights with music, poetry, comedy and literature all making it an incredible weekend. On the Lake Stage this year once again we have some of the finest new music makers bringing their talents to an appreciative crowd, and I’m super happy that we have some real favorites playing the festival. When new artists play there’s an appreciation there from the audience that makes the atmosphere on the Lake Stage truly unique. See you at Latitude!” – Huw Stephens
