In the absence of Glastonbury, many may be wondering of a suitable alternative summer festival. Latitude may be just that. The Suffolk music festival has announced its’ first bill of 2018 acts with the lineup boasting a trio of impressive headliners: Grammy award-winning R&B artist Solange, iconic rock band The Killers and indie festival favourites Alt-J.
