Day two of this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival saw the return of Radiohead and Bon Iver. The British rock band, who last graced the polo fields in 2004, took the stage by storm on Saturday, April 14 night with their epic two-hour set after the indie folk band founded by Justin Vernon warmed up the crowd with their emotive set.

Clad in leather jacket with his hair pulled back in a small ponytail, Radiohead's frontman Thom Yorke led his band to open their set with "Bloom" from their 2011 album, "The King of Limbs". They kicked up the pace with "15 Step" before launching into a piano-led rendition of "The Daily Mail" and delivered new song "Identikit".

In the second half of their set, the fivesome performed such hits as "Karma Police" and "Lotus Flower". They also entertained the crowd with "Lucky", "Reckoner" and "Paranoid Android" as an answer to calls for an encore. All and all, their set featured new tracks, including "Morning Mr Magpie" and "Give Up the Ghost" as well as songs from their catalogue, such as "Idioteque" and "Bodysnatchers".

Bon Iver, in the meantime, returned to the Coachella's stage after winning Best New Artist at this year's Grammy Awards. Following their last year's collaboration with Kanye West, the band performed "Perth", "Minnesota, WI" and "Holocene." Lead singer Justin Vernon also entertained the crowd by strumming an acoustic dobro guitar during a performance of "Skinny Love".

Also taking the stage on Day Two were the likes of David Guetta, The Shins and A$AP Rocky. Day One saw The Black Keys, Swedish House Mafia and Pulp rocking the polo fields. Meanwhile, the third and final day, April 15, will see the performance of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Florence and the Machine, Calvin Harris and At the Drive-In.
