The fashion guru has been confirmed in Latitude Festival's line-up not to sing, but to read extracts from her Active Resistance to Propaganda manifesto, a collection of essays on how art and culture can solve humanity's problems. She will join famed pop artist, Peter Blake, in the literary arena.

"The important thing about the manifesto is that it is a practice. If you follow it your life will begin to change. In the pursuit of culture you will start to think. If you change your life, you change the world," she said.

Viv will also be answering audience questions. Festival tickets can be purchased from
