Foals, who are eyeing the festival, said: “We are honored and delighted to be the headliner of Latitude this year.
“It was especially important to us because our first festival title was set at Latitude nearly ten years ago and we remember the hustle and bustle of that show as it is today; It feels like being in control of a jumbo jet at 35,000 feet… Latitude has helped us and many other big UK bands realize their potential.
“We couldn’t be happier to return Saturday night to remind everyone and ourselves how powerful and uplifting live music can be.”
Manic Street Preachers, Phoebe Bridgers, Groove Armada and Fontaines DC will also be the title of the show.
Snow Patrol will return to Latitude after being forced to cancel their title spot in 2019 due to illness and then their special guest spot in 2021 due to the pandemic.
The band said: “We are delighted to be back playing Latitude again, we launched the first title in 2006 and we are honored to be asked to return to the title again.
