More arts and music talent has been unveiled for this year’s Latitude Festival.

The festival, held at Henham Park in Suffolk, is celebrating its 10th year and has added more acts to an already extensive line up.

There will be plenty for film buffs with director, composer and writer Mike Figgis and filmaker Doug Aitkins giving question and answer sessions.

Members of Icelandic progressive rock band Sigur Ros will be giving a question and answer session in support of the screening of a film they have provided the scored.

Georg Holm and Orri Pall Dyrason will be speaking about Greatest Shows On Earth: A Century Of Funfairs, Circuses And Carnivals’, which is presented in conjunction with Sheffield Doc/Fest.

There will also be a great opportunity for some of the country’s finest up and coming dancers when the grand finalists of the BBC Young Dancer competition take to the stage.

Musicians added to the line up include Alabama 3, who famously played The Sopranos theme tune, and singer-songwriter Gavin Osborn.

One of the more usnusual features of the festival will be Tate Worlds: Surrealist inspired Minecraft which will combine a computer game, art and music.

The project is part Minecraft buildathon and part surreal club night and will feature gam experts creating Latitude’s own festival dream world.

Another highlight which was announced earlier this week is Gareth Malone’s Latitude Choir who have been put together via applications over the internet.

Many of the members will meet for the first time at the festival when they rehearse for the first time.
