Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke tipped for surprise late-night Latitude gig
Music fans at Latitude were braced for more surprises on the festival’s tenth anniversary with strong indications that Thom Yorke will play an unannounced intimate gig tonight.
The Radiohead frontman’s long-term collaborator and producer Nigel Godrich tweeted a picture of the cover for the singer’s latest solo album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, with the Latitude logo emblazoned across it.
Organisers were unable to confirm whether Yorke would perform but after last night’s sensational late-night surprise set from Ed Sheeran, festival-goers are anticipating more 10th birthday treats.
The local hero delighted around 3,000 fans lucky enough to make it in to one of the site’s smaller stages, deep in the woods at Henham Park, Suffolk.
Revellers have enjoyed clear blue skies and bright sunshine on the first two days of the festival, with temperatures set to reach around 24C this afternoon.
Many cooled down by swimming in the site’s lake which organisers have opened up for the first time this year.
Among the scheduled musical highlights today are trip hop pioneers Portishead, headlining the Obelisk arena.
Folk singer Laura Marling, indie poppers the Vaccines, pop star Lianne La Havas, Britpop stalwarts the Charlatans and Manchester singer songwriter Badly Drawn Boy also feature.
