The performance will see the band celebrating 25 years in music and coincides with the release of their Reworked album release.

Snow Patrol said: “Snow Patrol are thrilled to perform our Reworked set (featuring 14 musicians no less) as special guests.  Having played the first ever Latitude in 2006 we were gutted that injury forced us to cancel our headline slot last year. Thank you Latitude for giving us another chance to make it up.”

Elsewhere, the likes of Kate Tempest, La Roux, Mahalia have been added to the bill as well as comedian Simon Amstell.

The announcement comes after Haim, The Chemical Brothers and Liam Gallagher  were confirmed to headline the event - as well as comedy headliner Bill Bailey

Last year saw Stereophonics take the band's place, also taking the time to dedicate a song to the rockers during their set.
