Melvin Benn, Managing Director of Festival Republic and Founder and Creator of Latitude festival, commented: "This year's line-up will once again see Latitude present a bill of sensational artists. Superstar pianist Lang Lang is one of the world's biggest live and recording artists, and we're delighted to welcome him to his first ever outdoor festival. Bon Iver, Elbow and Paul Weller are all headliners with outstanding pedigrees, which we're thrilled to announce. And with artists and companies of the calibre of Jack Dee, National Theatre, Globe Education at Shakespeare's Globe and Tim Minchin all appearing, we're confident that 2012 will be the best Latitude yet."
