You can now watch Radiohead’s 2006 Bonnaroo Festival set online

The band have streamed the performance as part of their ongoing archival concert series

Huge music festivals including Coachella and Glastonbury have been pushed back or cancelled completely this year, with others still in question due to the coronavirus pandemic. Amid all this though, Radiohead have been uploading certain archival concerts, providing those missing out on live music with something to watch.

Most recently, the band have streamed their Bonnaroo set from June 17, 2006. 

“It's easily, comfortably, the best festival experience I've ever had in America,” says Jonny Greenwood of the Manchester, Tennessee festival in an Instagram post. “I hope the heat, dust, and smell of fine Southern whiskey comes over as well as the songs – and I hope that we get back to live music soon.”

Greenwood also explains some of the reasoning behind the choice to share this particular performance, adding that the band recently tracked down the original desk audio for the show.

For new material from the band, you’ll have to wait until at least 2021, as Thom Yorke and co. have announced they’re taking a year away from music.
