While a good portion of festival goers in the US attended Lollapalooza this weekend, a different "palooza" themed festival was taking place in Cornwall - Leopalooza. It had a very special guest that Lolla attendees would have loved to see, though, being none other than a DJ set from Radiohead's Thom Yorke. He performed to a crowd of about thirty people, and as one onlooker stated (via NME), "He’s probably the most influential artist of the past decade and here he is prepping to play to half a dozen drunk hippies." Cai Waggett, one of the festival's organizers, has spoken out about the special DJ set since it's gotten so much attention:

Thom is a good friend of the festival and he understands the DIY ethos of this independent event, and he offered a late-night set in our backstage area as a little exclusive, playing alongside the excellent DJ Samo. It was purposely kept quiet until very close to his performance so as not to overshadow anything else going on at the time.

There are several parts I need to correct in relation to the Evening Standard piece quoted!!

1. It was at 12:30am (not 2/2:30am)

2. The air was completely patchouli free.

3. There were at least 30 people present throughout (not including the 7 bar staff working that bar at the time!)

4. No Barn dancing/Line dancing/Dosie-do'ing/Riverdancing/Morris dancing ever took place - it was just dancing!

5. People knew who he was, but everyone respected his right to have fun & party during his down time. Just as they did everyone else!

6. Somehow it was missed that he also played last year too.... http://sphotos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/t31.0-8/c0.166.1549.1033/s960x960/1268559_10151877146028428_1742897078_o.jpg
