Will Tonight’s Radiohead Set at Coachella 2012 Stream Live After All?
There's a ton of bands at Coachella 2012 scheduled to get live stream treatment this weekend -- but unfortunately, Radiohead are not one of them. That said, eagle-eyed observers may have noticed a major coincidence: Saturday's live stream schedule has a big, gaping "TBA" hole at 11:05PM PT, and Radiohead coincidentally are supposed to hit the stage at 11:05PM PT. Not only that, they are the only act with that set time on Saturday.
While we're not quite ready to go ahead and report that you'll definitely be able to watch Radiohead's set from the comfort of your own home tonight, we will go out on a limb and say that it's pretty likely Radiohead are the to-be-announced webcast act. Because really, who else can it be if there's no other band starting then? Actually, maybe we will go ahead...
Radiohead are no strangers to Coachella, having played there in 2004. Die-hard fans attending the festival may be disappointed by the shorter set length of the festival format, but then again, with Radiohead not touring as extensively as the have in the past, beggars can't be choosers. A chance to see them is a chance to see them.
As for the rest of us, only time will tell if we will get our chance tonight.
