Radiohead headlined the first night of Coachella’s opening weekend yesterday. Racked by technical difficulties throughout the set, the band seemed to be mostly unruffled, with Thom Yorke making jokes in a seemingly dry manner. The career-spanning concert included a number of their classics, including “Creep,” “Karma Police,” “Paranoid Android,” as well as songs from A Moon Shaped Pool. Watch clips from their performance below. Once they finish their second Coachella set on April 21st, they will go overseas for the European leg of their tour.
The Ceremonia Festival was supposed to happen today in Toluca, Mexico, featuring a lineup led by Björk, M.I.A., Underworld, Beach House, James Blake, Nicolas Jaar, and more. The festival, however, has been canceled due to inclement weather.
