Latitude - Announce Very Special Guest Thom Yorke

16th – 19th July 2009
Henham Park Estate, Southwold, Suffolk

~ Thom Yorke ~

Latitude Festival is delighted to announce a very special guest to the outstanding line up taking place in Henham Park this July. With a weekend that boasts everything from cutting edge music from around the globe to the best in contemporary creative arts, Latitude offers a truly unique festival experience!

One of the most important and innovative songwriters and musicians of our generation, Thom Yorke, will be playing a solo set on the Obelisk Arena at noon on Sunday. With this specially created time slot, there is no doubt Yorke will wow audiences with this exclusive and very rare solo performance.

As well as worldwide success and dominance with multi-platinum album selling band Radiohead, in 2006 Yorke released his first solo album, ‘The Eraser’, which received a nomination for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize as well as a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album.

Melvin Benn, Managing Director, Festival Republic 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.”

Boasting four Music Arenas, the Obelisk, Uncut, Sunrise and The Lake Stage span a wide range of genres and music hand-picked especially for the festival; bands and artists are chosen with the essence of Latitude in mind. More established bands play in harmony alongside the freshest new acts and with so much more to be announced – it only gets better!
