Rufus Wainwright has been announced as the Sunday lunchtime performer at this year’s Latitude Festival.

The singer will follow in the footsteps of Thom Yorke and Tom Jones who have previously appeared on the festival’s Obelisk Arena at that time.

However, this year the traditional midday performance will be at 1pm to allow festival-goers to first enjoy a performance on the Waterfront Stage by world famous concert pianist Lang Lang.

The festival takes place at Henham Park, near Southwold, from July 12-15.

This year’s headlining music acts will be Bon Iver, Elbow and Paul Weller.
