Watch: Radiohead’s Entire Coachella 2012 Performance Hits The Internets


Earlier today we got to see pretty incredible video of the late Tupac Shakur performing — as a hologram — with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival last night. Right now, we get to see more exciting video from Coachella. On Saturday night, Radiohead was the headlining act and in case you missed their performance, you can watch the almost 2 hour concert set right here, right now. The folks at Coachella decided to livestream the entire music fest this year, which means that video of each performance is readily available online. Wanna see Radiohead’s entire Coachella performance? Check it out below.

Beats do more than keep time for Radiohead. At the band’s epic headlining performance on Saturday at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, tempo was everything – setting the tone and tension for the band’s searing rock-electronics blend, and sending fans into fits of wild interpretive dance moves on the great lawn. It was easily the largest gathering at the festival so far this weekend. On the road, Radiohead now has a second drummer, Clive Deamer, just to keep up with the layers of beats and rhythms. Late in the nearly two-hour performance, drummers Deamer and Phil Selway were joined by guitarists Jonny Greenwood and Ed O’Brien on percussion for “There There.” On “Weird Fishes/Arpeggi,” even the guitars were played like percussion instruments, tumbling forward as Yorke’s lonely post-millennial cry rushed to keep up: “Everybody leaves, if they get the chance/And this is my chance.” Yorke dedicated the world-weary “Karma Police” to the sort of people “that want something from you. You need a cold shower after talking to them.” But Saturday’s version was gentler than the acidic original. Coachella came into its own in 2004, the first year that Radiohead headlined a night at the annual music and arts fest in the California desert. Already one of the great bands of their generation, Radiohead’s performance helped define the festival. Years later – even as their material has grown more experimental and distant from the sound of their 1997 breakthrough, OK Computer – Radiohead remains an essential rock voice.

I’m not sure how long this video will stay online so enjoy it while you can. I LOVE that the folks at Coachella decided to livestream the performances this year. Even tho I didn’t attend the fest (again), I was able to watch some of the performances that I really, REALLY would’ve loved to have seen live. This is a great set. Radiohead put on a great show. Enjoy!

    I think they’ve been streaming some of the stages for a few years now..It’s nice to see the bands up close in the comfort of your own home and not have to deal with douchebags that roam Coachella.. ;) Pulp was my personal favorite..I cried like a baby when they came out..I love them so much..Kind of bummed I missed seeing them at the festival, but I was able to see them way better than I ever would have at the actual show!
