Last night, Radiohead performed at TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow, Scotland. Their performance comes ahead of their controversial show scheduled next week on July 19th in Tel Aviv, Israel, at Park Hayarkon. The scheduled performance has drawn criticism from Palestinian activists and spurred an open letter from a number of musicians—including Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), and Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio)—calling for the English group’s upcoming performance to be canceled. In response to these criticisms, frontman Thom Yorke has been open in his disagreement, telling Rolling Stone that the reaction “has been extremely upsetting” and that “I don’t agree with the cultural ban at all.”

For Radiohead’s Glasgow appearance last night, Consequence of Sound cites that activists from Glasgow Palestine Action, Glasgow Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and Radiohead Fans for Palestine protested both outside the festival ahead of the group’s performance as well as for the show itself. Activists within the crowd held signs and raised Palestinian flags in protest throughout the performance, ultimately getting a reaction from Thom Yorke before the group played “Myxomatosis.” Yorke, clearly exasperated, repeatedly uttered “Some fucking people,” as he looked out at the crowd and was allegedly caught giving the middle finger to protesters.
