Tania Harrison, Curator of the Arts Arenas commented: “This year the Latitude Arts Programme will explore the notion of Secrets, asking our artists and audience to consider and engage with the multitude of secrets within their lives and ask themselves: ‘What is Your Truth?’   This theme will pave the way for us to explore the human relationship with the subjective notion of truth, and the way the allure of secrets are embedded deep within our lives, throughout the programme of performances, discussions, speakers, screenings, art and installations. It’s not all serious of course and there are some shows I am bursting with excitement about and lashings of party spirit splashed all over the stages, not least what I believe is going to be the best comedy programme we have ever presented! Plus The Faraway Forest will unleash some outrageous gems, but that is all in the next announcement…”

The musical headliners announced are Damon Albarn, Two Door Cinema Club and The Black Keys. Full details here
