Latitude announce Bastille, Lewis Capaldi & Snow Patrol for 2021

Today marks what should have been the start of a glorious Latitude 2020.This summer may not be as expected, but festival fans can rejoice as the multi-award-winning festival will return to the picturesque grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk, on 22nd-25th July 2021 with headliners Lewis CapaldiBastille and special guests Snow Patrol topping a diverse bill where music meets the arts in a full on cultural explosion.Weekend and day tickets are on sale on Monday 20th July at 9am here.  Things have been a little quiet this year. It’s been tough without the music, without the laughs, without the wonder. So Latitude is getting ready to make 2021 the best year yet!  Festival organisers are thrilled to announce a refreshed programme and emboldened vision retaining everything you loved about Latitude and much more.   

Double BRIT Award winner Lewis Capaldi makes his Latitude debut as one of the UK’s biggest music success stories. In just one year after its release in May of 2019,  Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent was certified triple platinum in the UK and has spent a whopping 60 weeks in the Top Ten. The album spawned such singles as Grace, Hold Me While You Wait, and Someone You Loved, which topped the charts in the US and the UK. It also earned Capaldi accolades on both sides of the Atlantic, including two BRIT awards and a Grammy nomination. A festival superstar, his live performances are legendary and, with the possible premiere of brand new material from his highly anticipated second album, this is going to be unmissable!!  

Brit Award winners Bastille also make their Latitude debut as headliners. The cinematic performance will see the band perform a selection of songs from their three UK Top 10 studio albums Bad Blood, Wild World and Doom Days and material from their eagerly anticipated fourth album. Pioneers of hook-heavy hits such as Pompeii, Marshmello collaboration Happier, and Quarter Past Midnight, the four-piece continue to cement their reputation as one of the world’s most captivating live bands renowned for their cutting edge multi-sensory shows. 

Snow Patrol  make a momentous return to the Latitude in the coveted Sunday afternoon slot. The band who headlined the inaugural Latitude back in 2006,  were forced to cancel their slot at Latitude in 2019 due to illness.  2021 will see the band perform back on The Obelisk Stage. This momentous performance will celebrate 25 years in the business. Expect festival-sized anthems with hits such as Crack The Shutters, Run, and Chasing Cars.

Tomorrowland

Tijs Verwest, better known as Tiësto, will perform for the first time ever as VER:WEST at Tomorrowland Around the World. Unveiling his new melodic house music project to the world at the iconic Freedom Stage during Tomorrowland’s digital festival.

“I would describe VER:WEST as melodic house music. It’s a lot deeper and more chill and a very different energy than Tiësto. I got this opportunity from Tomorrowland to express a different side of me which I’ve never done before. I know they are going to put amazing visuals around it and make it look really different and cool. Expect the unexpected, it’s going to look amazing!”

Katy’s set will be a breath-taking visual spectacle featuring some of her greatest hits, as well as brand-new music from her upcoming album, “Smile”

Global pop superstar Katy Perry will perform a spectacular and unprecedented show at Tomorrowland Around the World, the digital festival. One of the best-selling musical artists of all time, Katy will dazzle the People of Tomorrow across the globe in an eye-popping visual spectacle full of special effects, delivering a breath-taking show of her greatest hits which shaped 21st century pop music as well as brand new music from her fifth album, “Smile,” which is set to be released on August 14.

Tomorrowland now teams up with Katy Perry, the worlds of electronic dance music and pop will collide in one of the most spectacular ways possible. The global chart-dominating American singer has previously worked together on songs with world class DJs and producers Zedd and Calvin Harris, while her iconic tracks (“I Kissed A Girl,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “Roar,” “Dark Horse”, and more) have been remixed by some of dance music’s top producers, including Tiësto, Oliver Heldens, R3HAB, Kaskade, Tommie Sunshine, Benny Bennassi, and many more.

In her 12 years with Capitol, Katy has racked up a cumulative 40 billion streams alongside worldwide sales of over 45 million adjusted albums and 135 million tracks. She was the first to reach 100 million followers on Twitter. Katy’s 2015 Super Bowl performance is the highest-rated in the event’s history. Katy was the first female artist to have four videos surpass a billion views each. Her videos for “Firework” and “Last Friday Night” have over one billion views, while “Dark Horse” has surpassed the two billion mark. “Roar” now has over three billion views.

Katy Perry: “I’ve always wanted to be a part of the fun of Tomorrowland, and have been following the amazing innovation, technology, and invention that this festival has always been about for a long time. I’m so glad to be a part of this version, and I hope my set makes you smile.”

Due to the developments of the CoronaVirus (Covid-19), and at the direction of the Maltese authorities, we are incredibly sad to announce the postponement of AMP Lost & Found Festival 2020. After careful consideration, the festival has been rescheduled and will now take place from Thurs 10th – Sunday 13th September 2020 (A month when average temperatures are typically 28 degrees). We really hope you can attend in September, in which case your festival ticket booking will automatically be changed and you’ll receive a complimentary drinks credit of €40. We understand that not everyone will be able to attend in September, in which case ticket holders can either exchange their ticket for the 2021 edition of AMP Lost & Found with a complimentary €40 drinks credit, or obtain a refund for their festival ticket. At such a testing time for the events, travel and tourism industry we would like to thank our amazing followers for being so patient and accommodating. To be unable to deliver this show on the date planned is really hard for us all to take, we are incredibly sad, but we are confident we can deliver a bigger and better event later in the year! Ultimately, the safety of our guests, staff and artists is our number one priority. We have a dedicated team of people who will be working around the clock in the coming weeks to help with your travel and accommodation queries. We want to make it as easy and smooth as possible for you, whatever you choose to do. On behalf of the whole AMP Lost and Found team thank you for your support. Please read our full statement via the link in our bio.
