The blues/rock duo join Northern Irish indie act Two Door Cinema Club and Blur frontman Damon Alburn in topping the bill at the Suffolk arts and music event.

Festival founder Melvin Benn described the line-up as "sensational and diverse".

He added: " We're incredibly pleased to announce The Black Keys as headliners, along with a huge variety of established and emerging artists, representing every genre from blues and rock through to world, indie, psychedelia, electronica and soul.

"Of course, it's the combination of outstanding music and arts that makes Latitude truly unique, and we're delighted to be able to reveal a whole host of high-calibre comedians, theatre companies, poets, writers and other performers across the festival."

Indie rockers Editors have also joined the main stage bill.

Latitude is continuing its partnership with BBC Radio 6 Music, which will host its own stage featuring acts including Mogwai and Lykke Li.

The July festival will include 10 arts arenas and stages hosting comedy, theatre, dance, film, cabaret and literature.

Comedy acts include Dara O'Briain, Milton Jones and Josh Widdicombe.
