Former Oasis frontman Gallagher, who was the secret act during the 2018 Latitude festival, said: “Yes brothers and sisters, I’m glad to announce I’ll be headlining Latitude Festival next Summer. LG.”

Haim, the three sisters from Los Angeles, made their Latitude debut in 2014.

“Latitude has always been one of our favourite festivals to play, now we are so excited to come back and headline,” the band said in a statement.

The festival’s first-ever comedy arena headliner is the veteran comic Bill Bailey, while revered poet Dr John Cooper Clarke is also set to perform.

“Last time I played Latitude it wasn’t too bad so I’m quite looking forward to headlining in 2020,” Bailey said.

Latitude takes place from July 16-19 at Henham Park, Suffolk.

Weekend tickets are on sale December 6 at 9am.
