Lily Allen to headline Latitude


Earlier today it was announced that Two Door Cinema Club have had to pull out of their headline slot at Latitude Festival, and that Lily Allen will be filling in for them this Friday.

Latitude Festival was due to be Two Door Cinema Club’s first ever headline show; but due to health issues they can’t perform. The band issued a statement saying:

It is with a heavy heart that we are going to need to cancel our upcoming shows at Latitude and Bournemouth Academy. Alex collapsed at Seattle airport on the way to London and has been hospitalised with a chronic stomach complaint. We are devastated to have to cancel shows that we were so looking forward to. We can only apologise and hope for your understanding at this time. Love TDCC x.

Lily Allen was asked to fill in by Latitude organisers Festival Republic, saying that she’s “more than happy to step in.” Managing Director of Festival Republic, Melvin Benn, added “We are honoured that Lily Allen is able to step in at the last minute and would like to thank her for filling the headline slot.”

However not everybody seems to be pleased by the news, with Lily Allen tweeting:

Latitude Festival will take place this weekend from Friday 18th – Sunday 20th July. The Black Keys and Damon Albarn will also headline.
