The band said: "People of the flat lands, we are returned to our home.

“Celebrate with us at Latitude as we project both the rock and the roll in outrageous quantities.

“You will sip finest faux champagne and nibble on vegan turnip burgers. You will wonder at our outrageous costumes. You will weep at the loudness of our songs.

Jo Brand said: "Looking forward to giving my ageing memory another challenge at Latitude this year and lying face down in the mud, trying to eat sweets. (That might have been another festival).
