Radiohead headed up the bill at the second day of Coachella in Indio, California yesterday (April 14).

The band, who previously headlined the festival in 2004, opened their set with 'Bloom' from their 2011 album, 'The King of Limbs', following it with '15 Step'. As well as airing 'Lotus Flower', the band also played new song 'Identikit'.

In front of a flashy video show, which saw frontman Thom Yorke's image distorted and projected on multi-coloured screens, the Oxford band went on the play 'Idioteque' and 'Lucky', the latter from their 1997 album 'OK Computer'.

Bon Iver warmed up the Coachella stage for Radiohead, with frontman Justin Vernon leading his band in an emotive set, which included 'Holocene', 'Blood Bank' and 'Skinny Love'.

Earlier in the day Azealia Banks played to a full Gobi tent, setting off a mass, foul-mouthed singalong to her cult track '212'. She closed her short set with the single, which was mixed into The Prodigy's 'Firestarter'.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds made their debut Coachella appearance in the early evening, with Gallagher dedicating Oasis B-side 'Half The World Away' to all the Brits in the crowd. Gallagher also dropped Oasis' 'Little By Little' and 'Talk Tonight' into his Coachella stage set, to the delight of the audience, finishing up with 'Don't Look Back In Anger'.

Later Kasabian appeared in the Mojave tent and dedicated 'Club Foot' to Noel Gallagher, dropping in a line from The Stooges' 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' at the end.

Earlier in the weekend, Kasabian played a special acoustic gig at Mulberry's Firepit party - scroll down and click below to watch footage of them performing their 2004 single 'LSF' during the show.

Kasier Chiefs, Laura Marling, St Vincent and Feist also performed last night, as well as punk legends the Buzzcocks, who played their classic tracks 'What Do I Get' and 'Orgasm Addict' and were watched by Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age.

The festival's star spangled punters included Katy Perry and Jared Leto while The Horrors and Arctic Monkeys, both of whom played on Friday, were spotted in the crowds.

The first weekend of two consecutive Coachella festivals closes today. Check back tomorrow to read a report from day three of the festival, which will see performances from Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg, as well with At The Drive-In, Justice and Florence and the Machine. The entire line-up then returns to the site next weekend (April 20-22).
