The Radiohead frontman will join the massive line-up at the festival, which takes place in east London's Victoria Park on 24 May.
Thom Yorke has been confirmed for All Points East 2020.
The Radiohead frontman has been added to the bill on Sunday 24 May, where he'll support Massive Attack ahead of their headline set.
Unlike his current Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes tour, where the Fade Out singer is accompanied by Nigel Godrich and visual artist Tarik Barr, his set at Victoria Park will see him take the stage solo – performing tracks from his own back-catalogue as well as Radiohead’s in a never-seen-before way.
Also joining the bill is Alfa Mist and Jacques Greene.
Tickets for Massive Attack at All Points East are on sale now.
