The Bangor band will perform at Henham Park, Suffolk in July.

Band member, Kevin Baird, said: "It's really exciting for us to be headlining Latitude in 2014.

"Over the past five years we've made the progression from playing in the small tents to being close to the top of the bill on the main stage.

"Headlining a great festival like Latitude is obviously quite a big deal for us but we also feel like it is the next natural step. We're ready to headline. We're ready to smash it."

Now in its ninth year, Latitude festival will also feature Billy Bragg and American multi-instrumentalist Booker T Jones.

Other performers include Phosphorescent , a rising star of alt-country; Anna Calvi, who was nominated for Best Breakthrough Act at last year's Brit Awards; American folk-pop nomad Cass McCombs; and experimental Swedish funk, afrobeat fusion band Goat.

The 2013 event won the Line-Up of the Year award at the UK Festival Awards earlier this week.

A spokesman said: "Latitude presents a festival experience like no other, carefully curated so that culture lovers can experience performances by leading artists from the worlds of theatre, dance, literature, film, comedy, cabaret, poetry, fashion, art as well as music all over one weekend."
