Latitude festival today announce the forthcoming arrival of yet more acts to the eclectic festival.

With acts like Bloc Party, Kraftwerk (in 3D no less) and Foals all set to head up proceedings, the festival has already been getting a lot of attention. Add to that the addition of Hot Chip, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House, Grizzly Bear and Yo La Tengo and it's easy to see why Latitude is becoming one of the most talked about festivals on the calendar.

New announcements include the arrival of Texas for their Latitude festival debut. The Scottish band celebrate their 25th year in the business this year, and after their critically acclaimed latest album are proving to be still at the height of their powers.

King Charles is another of the newbies to be announced. The classically trained glam-folk vocalist and songwriter will be a welcome addition to the celebrated Radio 6 Music Stage.

Watch: King Charles - Love Lust

For those that love a bit of a rave at their festivals, long standing dance music veteran and recent Swamp 81 favourite Zed Bias has been announced, along with house legend Roy Davis Jr, Romare, Werkha, Ossie, and Busy Twist. The variety of genres on offer is huge as all bases between garage, afrofunk, and UK funky are covered, featuring the likes of Benin City, Lorca, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Tuesday Born, Shox and Anushka. Moshi Moshi DJs and Jen Long will be hitting the decks on The Lake Stage starting the party, with more DJ’s yet to be announced.

Joining Latitude as a special guest on Sunday afternoon is one of the world’s finest trumpet players, British classical soloist Alison Balsom, who will make her exclusive festival appearance against the spectacular lakeside backdrop of The Waterfront Stage.

New comedy additions include Iranian born female comedian Shappi Khorsandi, South African superstar Trevor Noah and British comedian and writer Carl Donnelly amongst others.

This being Latitude, one of the cultural highlights of the calendar, there have been a whole host of announcements in literary and spoken word. Some of the highlights include Radio 4 food critic Jay Rayner, philosopher and author A C Grayling, American journalist and Guardian columnist Hadley Freeman as well as Amanda Fielding, Tom Thum, Mark Donne, Richard Brooks, and John Cooper Clarke amongst a myriad of others.

With yet more announcements in Film, Dance and Theatre and Fashion as well as an all new food area, Latitude is certainly proving to be the festival with a difference this year.
