Latitude Festival: The final additions to the 2017 lineup

Pumarosa, Klangstof and Skott are among the last group to be announced for 2017


Latitude Festival has announced the final performers for the 2017 edition in July.

The new additions, mostly to the smaller stages, join major names including The 1975 and Fleet Foxes and future stars including The Magic Gang and Shame at Henham Park.

Pumarosa are the new name for the Obelisk Arena, equipped with their debut album The Witch, with Albin Lee Meldau taking to the Lake Stage.

The BBC Music stage is joined by Scandipop star Skott, the folk of Beans On Toast, Life and Wesley Gonzalez.

The other additions are mostly to the BBC Introducing and Solas stages, featuring a wealth of varied under-the-radar names across the weekend.

The most familiar names among those include New Zealander Aldous Harding, Dutch band Klangstof and Irish singer-songwriter Alibhe Reddy.

There’s also spots for a number of Scandinavian bands, including Geowulf, Lowly and Broen.
