The singer-songwriter made a surprise appearance at the Suffolk festival over the weekend

Ed Sheeran was joined by members of Snow Patrol at his second secret set of the weekend at this year’s Latitude Festival.

The annual event took place at Henham Park in Southwold, Suffolk over the weekend, with Sheeran already making an earlier surprise appearance on Friday night (July 17).

On Saturday (July 18), the singer-songwriter took to the Other Voices tent, inviting Snow Patrol’s Jonny Quinn and Nathan Connolly for a cover of ‘Chasing Cars’.

Sheeran, a local from nearby Framlington, played an hour-long set at the festival’s woodland area on Friday after Alt-J closed their set on the main stage.

He told the crowd that he’d attended “pretty much every Latitude” and can “remember dreaming of being on the stage”.

Meanwhile, Sheeran recently responded to criticism from Morrissey, who delivered a damning indictment of the music industry, painting it as being entirely under the control of major labels “force feeding” the public artists such as Sheeran and Sam Smith.

The former Smiths frontman had dismissed the modern music climate as “stringently controlled, obvious and predictable”, with Sheeran taking to Twitter to brush off the comments as “absolute bollocks”.

Responding to NME‘s reporting of Morrissey’s remarks, Sheeran wrote: “even you guys should think this is absolute bollocks. Taking me out of the equation, Sam was the least predictable success story of the last year.”
