Obelisk Arena on the Sunday (19 July).
Speaking about the addition, Latitude boss Melvin Benn said: “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.”
