Tinariwen and Damon Albarn To Play Latitude Fest

Latitude
Summer’s here, Glastonbury has just opened its gates to streams of music lovers and it’s safe to say the festival season is well and truly upon us.

We’re delighted that Latitude, one of the UK’s best arts festivals, have added Damon Albarn and Tinariwen to their line up. Amongst the theatre workshops, comedy and stellar acts such as Bombay Bicycle Club, we also suggest you catch Soundway Records newcomers Ibibio Sound Machine and Mauritanian beatsmith Mo Kolours.

Latitude runs from 17th- 20th July in Henham Park, Suffolk.  See the full line up here and get a flavour of the festival in the video below.
