It’s a festival that’s nurtured us beyond any other, taking us from the Lake Stage to the 6music Stage and then to headlining in 2015. To do so again is a huge privilege. See you in Suffolk!"

Solange – who is the younger sister of R&B superstar Beyonce – has been riding high on the success of her critically-acclaimed LP ‘A Seat at the Table’, and will perform her first -ever festival headline slot at Latitude playing Friday night.

As well as a stellar music line-up, the four days will also see an abundance of comedy stars entertain the masses.
