THOM Yorke's appearance will make this year's Latitude the best yet, says festival boss Melvin Benn.

The Radiohead frontman is set to play a solo gig on the Obelisk Arena at midday on Sunday.

While he has performed solo at charity concerts before, this is his first full-length show without his band.

Melvin Benn, who runs the festival, said securing Yorke for the line-up was a massive coup for Latitude.
