Latitude: Texas Added To Line Up

With just over a month until the start of Latitude a new wave of acts have been announced for the Suffolk festival.

Texas is one of the groups revealed for the music stages. Their performance will mark the 25th anniversary of their first public concert.

Lead singer, Sharleen Spiteri, said: "We are really excited to be playing Latitude this year. The reaction to our new album 'The Conversation' has overwhelmed us and we know we are going to have a great time playing some of the new tracks to everyone!"

The band joins the likes of Bloc Party, Kraftwerk 3-D and Foals who have already been announced.

In the All New Food Area organisers are promising 'the culinary spectacular of 2013'.

Chef and food writer Gizzi Erskine has been added to events and will be hosting a cooking cabaret stage.

For those interested in dance and theatre, groups like Boy Blue Entertainment and balletLorent will be performing on the Waterfront Stage, while for comedy fans Shappi Korshandi will be joining Eddie Izzard and Sean Lock. Shappi appeared on shows such as Live At The Apollo and Have I Got News For You.

Fans of Made In Chelsea will also be in for a treat with the appearance of Jamie Laing, who'll be presenting the graduate fashion show.

And if the entertainment gets too much, organisers have announced there will be saunas and hot tubs next to the lake for festival goers to relax in.

Organiser Melvin Benn said: "This is an incredibly diverse festival, we've  got underground acts alongside household names like Eddie Izzard, and it's that kind of diversity that makes it really interesting. It brings an incredible array of different people the the festival."

Latitude is in its 8th year and will be at Henham Park in Southwold from Thursday 18th - Sunday 21st July.
