Fontaines D.C. and Alfie Templeman out of this weekend’s Latitude Festival, Sports Team added to the bill

It's all go before this weekend's event.

Festival season 2021 is going to be ‘interesting’, that’s for sure. As live music attempts to get up and running again, it can’t escape the realities that we’re still in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. That’s something that’s already having an impact at Latitude, with two acts already dropping off this weekend’s bill.

Posting on social media, both Fontaines DC and Alfie Templeman have confirmed they’ve tested positive for COVID, and will therefore be unable to play the festival.

Alfie has already been replaced on the bill by Sports Team, who will be heading over for the Saturday (24th July) after their Margate spectacular tomorrow (23rd July) to play.

Latitude takes place between 23rd and 25th July in Henham Park, Suffolk.
