20 years to the day of their Glastonbury debut, Radiohead made their glorious return to Worthy Farm on Friday night. Marking their four appearance at the UK festival, and first since a surprise gig in 2011, the band’s headlining set began a little after 9:30 p.m. local time and ran until close to midnight. It was truly a career-spanning performance, as the band played at least one song from each of their nine studio albums. Appropriately, OK Computer received the most love, with Radiohead revisiting seven tracks from the classic album celebrating its 20th anniversary this month.
After kicking off the show with “Daydreaming” and “Ful Stop”, from their latest LP, A Moon Shaped Pool, Radiohead reached back into their catalog with performances of “Airbag”, “Myxomatosis”, “Let Down”, and “Bodysnatchers”. The first encore included “No Surprises”, “Nude”, “2+2=5”, “Paranoid Android” and “Fake Plastic Trees”, before Radiohead took a second bow with “Lotus Flower”, “Creep”, and “Karma Police”.
By all accounts, it was the perfect set from one of music’s greatest bands at the world’s most acclaimed music festival. Watch pro-shot footage of the performance and see the full setlist below. Update: You can also listen to a full audio recording of the set here.
