Cracker of a bill emerges

It has been confirmed that the Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will be joining the pink sheep and poets at this year's Latitude festival.

Also on the musical bill are Doves, The Gossip, Bat For Lashes, and Editors, with many more acts to be announced for the bash, which takes place in Southwold, Suffolk between July 16th and 19th.

BBC radio will again be in attendance, and the Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre and Lyric Hammersmith will all be contributing to the arts side of things. It seems Luke Haines will be putting in an appearance, though whether this is in musical or literary capacity remains to be seen.
