Radiohead headline South Korean festival

30th Jul 2012

Radiohead rocked South Korea over the weekend when they played to an estimated 100,000 people at the Jisan Valley Rock Festival.

Bands and rock fans from around the world headed out in the scorching July heat to the mountains near Icheon, Gyeonggi Province for the biggest Jisan festival so far.

For its fourth year, the festival had bigger bands and more food and drink booths than ever before and most of the hotels, pensions and condos nearby were booked out months in advance.

Radiohead fans who had travelled to the festival were unlikely to have been disappointed as the band played a series of encores and overran their Friday night headline slot by almost an hour, finally finishing at midnight.

They played mostly new songs but thrilled the crowd at the end of their set with OK Computer classic, Paranoid Android.

Before headliners Radiohead - by far the biggest band at the festival - took to the stage Elvis Costello and the Imposters pumped up the crowd and got them dancing.
