Radiohead Suffer Technical Difficulties During Coachella Set

Radiohead were forced to leave the stage TWICE during their set at Coachella last night.

The British band’s headline set was hit with numerous technical problems, forcing them to abandon their show.

The band faced problems just three songs into their set, including a complete sound cut-off and sudden bursts of feedback.

Sound problems began during ‘Full Stop’ and continued to into ’15 Step’.

It was then the stage went dark and the band took a break from the show.

Near the end of ‘Let Down’, the main stage speakers failed and the band quit the stage for a second time.

Despite the technical setbacks, Radiohead leader singer Thom Yorke kept his sense of humour.

“Can you actually hear me now?” Thom asked the crowd after returning to the stage for the second time.

“I’d love to tell you a joke, lighten the mood, something like that. But this is Radiohead…”
