The Maccabees Return To Play The Obelisk Arena
Hot on the heels of their number one album that included the hit ‘Marks To Prove It’, and last months NME Award for ‘Best British Band’, the South London five piece band, The Maccabees are topping the bill with an evening set which promises to be one of the highlights of this years festival. Also strutting their stuff on The Obelisk Arena stage will be The National, American Indie band who’s 2013 studio album ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ was nominated for Best Alternative Album in the 2014 Grammy’s. Formed back in the 80’s, rock band New Order will undoubtedly get festival goers in the mood for a bit of air guitaring. Their 1983 hit Blue Monday was the biggest selling 12″ single of all time and displays an upbeat and more electronic edge as they developed their iconic sound.
This years festival will take place from the 14th-17th July, and promises to be even bigger and better than ever before. Latituders’ can also look forward to some of the Literary World’s most popular poets including Don Paterson, John Hegley and Hollie McNish. Australian circus troupe Circa, theatre company Improbable, puppeteers Blind Summit and the Berlin-based Gob Squad will headline the theatre programme at Latitude Festival this year.
