Some waved Palestinian flags and raised a banner reading “Israel is an apartheid state. Radiohead, don’t play there,” the London-based website Jewish News reported. Some members of the audience shouted “free Palestine,” as well.
Radiohead performed as the headliner at the Glastonbury Festival in southwest England on Friday. The band was greeted with applause as it took the stage, according to the report.
Dozens of high-profile artists had signed a letter sent to Radiohead in February urging the band to cancel its July performance in Tel Aviv. Earlier this month, Radiohead singer Thom Yorke said the letter was “offensive” and called out those who signed it for assuming the band is not informed on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
