Thom Yorke reportedly played a DJ set to just eight people at Cornish festival Leopallooza over the weekend.

The festival dubs itself “the best house party in a field” but did not advertise Yorke’s appearance prior to the festival on Saturday night (August 2). Yorke regularly plays DJ sets around the world and reportedly took to the decks on Saturday night in the backstage area of the festival. The Evening Standard reports that just eight people were present while he played.

“He’s probably the most influential artist of the past decade and here he is prepping to play to half a dozen drunk hippies,” one onlooker at the Bude event is quoted is saying. It is claimed that Yorke was then seen barn dancing with a group of festival-goers, “many of whom had no idea who he was”.

Artists who performed at Leopallooza over the weekend included Superfood, Foxes, Dry The River and DZ Deathrays. 2014 marks the ninth Leopallooza. The independent festival took place over three days at Lower Exe Farm in North Conrnwall.
