Lily Allen to replace Two Door Cinema Club at Latitude

The band were forced to pull after vocalist Alex Trimble fell ill.

After Two Door Cinema Club announced earlier that they have been forced to pull their headline set at Latitude festival on Friday (18th July), organisers Festival Republic have revealed Lily Allen is to replace them for the Obelisk stage set.

“So sorry to hear about Alex from Two Door Cinema Club,” the singer said, in a statement. “However I am more than happy to step in. I’ve never been to Latitude but I hear it’s fabulous and I can’t wait to get my heels on for some serious dancing action on Friday evening - so, so excited”

Festival Republic boss, Melvin Benn added, “It is with deep sadness that our longstanding supporters and Friday night headliner Two Door Cinema Club have had to cancel their performance under advice of doctors. We wish Alex all the best and a speedy recovery.

We are honoured that Lily Allen is able to step in at the last minute and would like to thank her for filling the headline slot. After her show stopping performance at Glastonbury Lily was a natural choice, the Latitude audience are in for something really spectacular.”
