Latitude Festival have announced another wave of bands that have been added to the weekends bill. On the Obelisk Arena
The Broken Family Band will brink their alt-country rock sounds to the proceedings and are joined by the hotly tipped seven piece Broken Records.

Members of 
Miike Snow have been responsible for pop hits by Britney Spears, Madonna and Kylie Minogue but the sounds that they will bring to Latitude couldn't be much further removed from these throw away pop numbers. They combine guitar, piano and electronics to create the light, sweet and airy music that they will show case on the Uncut Arena stage. Gurrumul is a member of the Gumatj clan of north east Arnhemland in Australia and it is the songs and stories of the Gumatj clan that he sublimely adapts into contemporary song styles. Formed in 1987 and then disbanded in 1990 The Vaselines where popular in their native Scotland but it was super fan Kurt Cobain who bought them to most peoples attention by covering their songs. Reformed last year this will be a chance to relive those memories of the summers in the 1980's. Manchester Orchestra hail, not from Manchester as you may first think, but from Atlanta where they honed their loud/soft dynamics to create an engaging live show. Alela Diane has a remarkably warm voice that she combines with some beautiful acoustic songs. One not to be missed! Red Light Company formed just over two years ago through an advert in the paper and will show case their debut album Fine Fascination at the festival.

Over on the Sunrise Arena 8 members of 
The Phenomenal Handclap Band will combine primal beats and swirling guitars to bring a strong live show to the stage.
