Odd Future joined by Trash Talk during dramatic Reading Festival set

The LA rap collective have a tangle with security as they play the event's Main Stage

Odd Future were joined onstage by hardcore punks Trash Talk during an eventful set at Reading Festival this afternoon (August 25).

The punks came out at the tail-end of the rappers’ 50-minute set to perform ‘Radicals’ and blasted through the track with its shout-a-long chorus “Kill people. Burn shit. Fuck school.”


The collaboration followed an incident-hit set by the rap collective which almost turned nasty when key members Left Brain and Tyler, The Creator tangled with security and had to be physically wrestled away from the crowd. Both Left Brain and Tyler then proceeded to mock the security team by miming sex positions in front and behind each of them.

The group had kicked off their set with DJ Syd The Kyd blasting Rick Ross’ ‘Won’t Hold Me Back’ to the cheering crowd before the rest of the collective took to the stage. The set was otherwise fairly predictable, with recent hits ‘Rella’, ‘Sam (Is Dead)’ and ‘Yonkers’ all aired as well as crowd favourite ‘Swiss Army’.

Odd Future played:

‘Sam (Is Dead)’
‘Swiss Army’
‘Wolf Gang’
‘Rella (Reprise)’
‘Everything That’s Yours’
‘Domo Genesis’
‘La Bonita’

Reading Festival continues today with sets from Kasabian, Florence And The Machine, The Vaccines and At The Drive-In.
