Thom Yorke as been announced as a very special guest for next month’s Latitude Festival.

Taking to the Obelisk Arena stage at midday on Sunday July 19, the Radiohead singer will perform solo, in the same slot that Joanna Newsom performed a hugely acclaimed show at last year’s event.

Commenting on the latest festival exclusive Managing Director of Festival Republic Melvin Benn says: “There is nothing I can add that Thom Yorke’s confirmation doesn’t already say. That it is a special one off performance for Latitude only fills me with enormous pride at the statement it makes about the festival. I am overjoyed at the thought of it.”

Latitude, Britain’s premier music and arts festival, starts in the middle of next month, running from July 16 to 19 in the grounds of Henham Park near Southwold, Suffolk.

Tickets are still available for £150 for the weekend, from nme.com/gigs
