He’s on the cover of Dork, he’s got a storming debut album due, and he’s playing Latitude 2017. Life doesn’t get much better than it is for our Dec right now. Unless, of course, you’re planning to go see him - because, let’s face it, there is no way this set isn’t going Top 5 by the end of the weekend. Plus, with his chum Maggie Rogers right after him on the bill, don’t be surprised if they have something special to burst out - just like they did at Glastonbury last month.
Mumford and Sons
They’re one of the biggest bands on the planet, so Mumford and Sons have nothing to prove in headlining Latitude. What they do have, though, is a bunch of artists with them as part of their Gentlemen of the Road touring festival ‘thingy’. Basically, if anything is rubbish today at Latitude, you can complain to Mumford and Sons.

Former Dork cover stars Glass Animals are festival old hands by now. They’ve been running round the planet proving they can bring the vibes to a field full of funsters. But Latitude feels like somewhere they might be able to call home - or at the very least rest their giant pineapple for a while. Expect this to be all kinds of great.
Two Door Cinema Club
Two Door Cinema Club were supposed to have headlined Latitude by now. They were booked for the slot. It was in the bag. Then it all went wonky, and the band were replaced by Lily Allen at the last minute. They’re back on full steam now, though, with last year’s ‘Gameshow’ album powering their engine.
