Radiohead mainman takes his Eraser to Latitude

Latitude is shaping up to be one of the tastiest festivals of the summer, what with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Grace Jones, Pet Shop Boys, I Like Trains and Wild Beasts all heading to dance with dyed sheep in the (hopefully) balmy Suffolk sun.

Now Radiohead's Thom Yorke has been added to the bill between July 16th and 19th, and will be playing a special Sunday lunchtime slot.

Said Latitude head honcho Melvin Benn, "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."
