It has been over a year since she released the critically acclaimed album A Seat At The Table which she has called "a project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief, and healing".

Alt-J performed on the Lake Stage in 2012 as an up-and-coming act, returning to headline the BBC Music Stage in 2013.

The performers said: "We are over the moon to be returning to Latitude for a fourth time. It's a festival that's nurtured us beyond any other, taking us from the Lake Stage to the 6music Stage and then to headlining in 2015.

"To do so again is a huge privilege."

Also performing are comics Bridget Christie, Harry Hill, Tim Key and Jonathan Pie and Norfolk poet Luke Wright.
