Thom Yorke moves in mysterious ways — literally and figuratively.

While most of the world’s hipster population was focused on Lollapalooza in Chicago this past weekend, the Radiohead frontman was home in England playing an unannounced DJ set at the far less glamorous Leopalooza Festival.

Touted as “the greatest house party … in a field,” the festival in Cornwall is known as a showcase for underground, unknown and emerging artists, according to the London Evening Standard. But Yorke didn’t even spin onstage at the festival — he played his surprise set backstage at about 2:30AM Sunday to an audience of just eight people.

While there doesn’t seem to be any great photos or videos of the appearance, we can only imagine it featured Yorke flailing wildly like he did during this 2011 DJ set in Los Angeles:
