LANA DEL REY AND MORE JOINING THE LATITUDE LINE UP!
The multi-award winning Lana Del Rey, whose bewitching voice, songs and bad-girl persona have catapulted her from a social media sensation to a critically acclaimed artist topping the album charts in seven countries in less than a year. Lana Del Rey will join a star-studded bill that already includes Bon Iver, Elbow and Paul Weller.
The Film & Music Arena welcomes genre-spanning dance party starters the Phenomenal Handclap Band who fuse international psych, soul and cosmic disco for a truly unique experience. Experimental audiovisual collective Noise Of Art, will be transforming the Film & Music Arena into a space for electronic happenings and as Time Out states “When it comes to mega multimedia events, DJ Ben Osborne and his Noise of Art Collective are all over it.” The “horror collage” People Like Us will be stopping off at Latitude with A Magical Misery Tour. Art of Noise will be entertaining festival goers late into the night in Pandora’s Playground with their Psychedelic Curiosity Show, which blends retro-futuristic steampunk with 60’s psychedelia all via the wonders of a VW hippy mobile. Over in The Faraway Forest the Occupy Movement will be taken up a level with Miss Behave’s Mess – expect the weird and wonderful (and everything in between!) with The Mess Tent offering bite sized shows, The Bozo Show where you can drown the clown and Popcorn, Surprises and Flummery brought to you by Miss Behave, described by The Independent as, “Absolutely charming, startlingly entertaining, and with a hugely enjoyable ‘Aargh’ factor.”
Latitude’s stellar comedy bill for 2012 will be augmented by appearances from rapper, actor and comedian Doc Brown, TV regular Holly Walsh and sets from Mark Olver, Josh Widdicombe and newcomer James Acaster. Marcus Brigstocke and Andre Vincent will appear with a special edition of the BBC Four Show The Late Edition, renamed The Early Edition, while young comedians will be represented by E4’s School of Comedy. TV and radio favourite Dave Gorman will be providing laughs in the Literary Arena.
