Previous artists who have graced the stage include The xx, James Blake, Metronomy, Bombay Bicycle Club, alt-J, and this year’s Friday night Latitude Festival headliners The 1975.
BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens said: “I adore Latitude, and curating the Lake Stage is one of my favourite things. This year’s headliners Cabbage, Jorja Smith and The Magic Gang sum up the spirit of independence and confidence in the music on the stage.
"Cabbage are immense on stage; they've really made a mark with their live gigs. Jorja was last seen onstage with Drake, appearing on 'More Life'. And The Magic Gang have emerged as one of the most exciting live bands around. Elsewhere on the Lake Stage you have some of my favourite new artists playing. It's going to be a blast!"
The Lake Stage line-up features:
CABBAGE | JORJA SMITH | THE MAGIC GANG | ASTROID BOYS | BRUNO MAJOR | CASI | DREAM WIFE | GURR | HMLTD | IDLES | LITTLE CUB | LIV DAWSON | MATT MALTESE | NILÜFER YANYA | OTZEKI | SAINT SISTER | SHAME | STRONG ASIAN MOTHERS | SUPERGLU

01/03/17 - The 1975, Mumford & Sons and Fleet Foxes have been announced as the Obelisk Arena headliners at Latitude 2017.
Mumford & Sons will be bringing their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover to Henham Park, presenting their personally curated Saturday line up of some of today’s biggest new bands, before bringing the night to a close with their headline performance.
Mumford & Sons said: "This collaboration with Latitude is one of the most exciting things we're doing this year. Ever since we started working on Gentlemen Of The Road Stopovers we've really enjoyed curating line ups and sharing not only our own music but also sharing music of artists who we love and are listening to regularly. It's almost like creating a mix tape with a best friend, but instead it's a whole day of music, across multiple stages, with 40,000 people!"
Melvin Benn, founder and creator of Latitude Festival commented: "Following the incredible success of our eleventh edition last year, we had set the bar high for this year's festival. The 1975 have more than proven themselves over the past year and I'm thrilled to give them a well-deserved headline slot. Mumford & Sons have chosen Latitude as the only stop in the UK for their Gentlemen of the Road Takeover, and Fleet Foxes will headline their only UK appearance at a festival this year. Latitude 2017 is already simply unmissable."
Multi-arts festival Latitude has grown from strength to strength since its first edition in 2006. This year's 12th edition will see artists from the worlds of theatre, dance, literature, film, comedy, cabaret, poetry, fashion, art, as well as music, perform across the festival's many stages and arenas.
