Radiohead: ‘We’ll be at Glastonbury’

Jonny Greenwood says band will attend festival – but not as you'd expect

Radiohead‘s Jonny Greenwood has said his band are likely to be at this year’s Glastonbury Festival – but hang on before you bag your place at the front.

The guitarist has said that despite rumours linking the band will the event, the only appearance Radiohead will make at Worthy Farm will be as fans.

He told Radio 1’s Newsbeat: “We’re talking about probably going, whether we’ll play or do anything musical, I’ve no idea. Thom (Yorke) was there last year and really enjoyed seeing bands like Madness playing in the casino, so maybe we’ll do that this year.”

Greenwood said the band have enjoyed all their appearances at the festival over the years (1994, 1997 and 2003), explaining: “It’s a different thing, you’re providing a soundtrack for people having fun at a festival. It’s not a Radiohead concert and for that reason it can be great, it can be the best kind of show.”
