This year will mark the 20th anniversary of Radiohead’s seminal album OK Computer.

A momentous occasion, obviously, which needs to be celebrated with the reverence it deserves. So, what better way than the band performing it at their headlining slot at Glastonbury this summer? Well, that’s if the rumours are to be believed.

A source told the Daily Star: ‘There’s a good chance it will be heavy on OK Computer.

‘They aren’t nostalgic but it is also 20 years since their headline stint at Glasto in the rain.’

Let’s hope the weather’s a bit better when they take to the Pyramid stage on Friday, June 23.

OK Computer, a beguiling mix of melancholic rock, was the band’s third album and has been hailed by critics as one of the best LPs ever made.

Featuring the songs ‘Paranoid Android’, ‘Karma Police’, ‘Lucky’ and ‘No Surprises’, it has sold 4.5 million copies to date, worldwide.

Radiohead will be been joined by Ed Sheeran and the Foo Fighters at Worthy Farm, Somerset. Chic frontman Nile Rodgers also recently confirmed that he would be performing at the festival.

Glastonbury takes place from June 21 to June 25.
