In a UK festival exclusive, the iconic British band DURAN DURAN has been unveiled as the headliners for the 2024 edition of the Latitude Festival. The announcement coincides with the release of the band’s critically acclaimed new gothic-themed album, Danse Macabre, which made its debut in the UK Top Five this week.
The band is set to take the main stage at the award-winning festival as it returns to the picturesque grounds of Henham Park, Suffolk, from July 25th to 28th, 2024, presenting a diverse line-up where music and the arts converge. A further line-up announcement is scheduled for later this year.
Duran Duran’s fusion of artistry and innovation seamlessly resonates with Latitude’s commitment to curate a multifaceted cultural experience. Celebrated for their iconic style, ground-breaking music, and a consistent string of chart-topping hits, the band have unquestionably left their mark on both the music and fashion realms. With their ongoing evolution and the ability to transcend musical boundaries, the band’s mesmerising live performances make them an ideal fit for the Latitude festival.Melvin Benn – Latitude’s Festival Director
Latitude Festival, renowned for its eclectic mix of culture, art, and music, provides the perfect stage for Duran Duran to showcase their ground-breaking sound and style, both of which have consistently pushed the boundaries of music, fashion, and art throughout their illustrious career.
DURAN DURAN’s latest album Danse Macabre sees the band unearth bright melodies from the darkness, with 13 tracks threading together new songs, themed covers, and newly reimagined versions of their classics and favourites.
We are excited to be making Latitude our sole UK performance next summer. It’s a great festival, and it’s been a long time since Duran have been in that part of the country. In fact, it’s our first time ever in Suffolk. We are riding high on the reception our new Danse Macabre album has received, and looking forward to bringing music from that record, all the way back to our 1981 debut album. See you there!John Taylor – Duran Duran
The Latitude announcement follows a huge year of live activity for Duran Duran, including sold-out arena shows across the UK, Ireland, North America and Canada. The performances continued the band’s acclaimed FUTURE PAST tour and were feverishly received, described as at “royalty status” by The Times, “decadent and bombastic” by The Telegraph, “a first-class and commanding performance” by CLASH, and “national treasures” by The Spectator.
