Albarn will play the festival's Waterfront Stage on the Saturday, and is the latest artist to be added to the festival line-up after Festival Director Melvin Benn revealed last month that the 2021 edition of Latitude will go ahead at full capacity as part of the UK government's Events Research Programme.
He will perform songs from across his career, including his forthcoming solo album The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows.
