Kraftwerk To Headline Latitude Festival In Suffolk
German electro pioneers Kraftwerk head to Suffolk on the back of a successful eight-night retrospective at London’s Tate Modern.
Melvin Benn, managing director of organisers Festival Republic, said: “We’re delighted to welcome the forefathers of electronic music, Kraftwerk, to Latitude with their 3-D show who, along with Bloc Party and Foals, will headline an incredibly strong music programme that already includes some of 2013’s hottest acts.”
BBC 6 Music presenter Steve Lamacq said Latitude, which has a capacity of about 35,000 people, was a “magical” festival.
“I love the surroundings and the setting for Latitude,” he said.
“It’s an incredibly popular festival with 6 Music listeners, especially with this year’s line-up which includes innovators like Kraftwerk and bands I’ve championed down the years like Bloc Party and more recently Alt-J.”
