Tricky is set to perform with Massive Attack at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park.
The 48-year-old vocalist-and-producer will join the trip hop duo - Robert '3D' Del Naja and Grant 'Daddy G' Marshall - will be joined on the Great Oak Stage at the music festival on July 1, for only their second ever performance together, and first in the UK.
Massive Attack said: "We're pleased to announce that Tricky will be joining us on stage for a few shows this summer - the first one being BST Hyde Park on July 1st."
Tricky - real name is Adrian Thaws - has worked with Massive Attack from the start of their career and rapped on their debut 1991 album 'Blue Lines' and lyrics written for his debut solo LP 'Maxinquaye' were used by Massive Attack resulting in different versions of the same songs appearing on his own record and their album 'Protection'.
Fans will see the pair showcase a new and provocative audio-visual live show, which has been designed by 3D and long-time visual collaborators United Visual Artists.
James King, Senior Vice President of AEG Live, said: "With powerful beats, orchestral arrangements, beautiful melodies by incredible vocalists, inspired video art - it's hard to think of a more important moment for the World to listen to Massive Attack than right now.
"The band's production has always been a shining light in live music and to see their video art across 900m2 of screen on the Great Oak Stage will be a truly breathtaking sight."
A host of other support acts have also been added to the line-up on July 1, including Loyle Carner, Shura and Balthazar.
