14th – 17th July 2011, Henham Park Estate, Southwold, Suffolk.

TUESDAY 31st May 2011 Latitude is proud to announce the Sunday midday performance will be:

Scala & Kolacny Brothers
Confirmed for the prestigious Sunday midday performance this year are the phenomenal Scala & Kolacny Brothers, comprising the two Kolacny brothers, Steven and Stijn and Scala, an all-girl 26-piece choir. This visually stunning and sonically breathtaking collective have been a cult success since they started releasing albums in 2002. Drawing inspiration from modern pop, dance, rock and even metal, Scala, under the tutorage of conductor Stijn Kolacny and arranger and pianist Steven Kolacny, have produced beautiful re-workings of hits from Metallica, Bjork, U2, Nirvana, Kylie Minogue, Depeche Mode and German industrial metal band Rammstein. However it’s their haunting cover of Radiohead’s Creep that has catapulted them into the mainstream consciousness. Featuring in the trailer for Oscar winning film The Social Network – their rendition became a viral sensation notching up over 250 million views worldwide.

For Latitude, their performance on Sunday at midday will be a spellbinding show and the perfect way to ease your way into the day’s festivities. Let their angelic voices sooth the hangovers and transport you to another world.

In addition to this exciting announcement, ahead of their appearance at Latitude, Scala & Kolacny Brothers will perform in London on the 7th June. Latitude invites you to join the Official Latitude forum and find out how you, our loyal fans, can play a huge part in helping to select some of the songs that will be performed during their Sunday midday appearance on the Obelisk Arena. Full details to be announced on Latitude’s social media sites and the Official Latitude forum after the 7th June.

The midday performance has previously been filled with some exceptional appearances from Joanna Newsom, Thom Yorke and last year’s Tom Jones and Latitude is excited to add Scala & Kolacny Brothers to that list.

The open space of Latitude’s Obelisk Arena is a beautiful natural amphitheatre that has housed truly momentous performances over the past five years. Renowned for pushing musical boundaries and offering something not found anywhere else, lay down your picnic blanket or put on your dancing shoes for the 2011 Obelisk Arena line-up.
