The New Zealand music industry is abuzz that English super group Radiohead may play in the country this year.

Dunedin is tipped as a strong contender as the band has indicated it will favour indoor stadiums on its 2012 world tour.

Radiohead were yesterday announced as one of the headlining acts at the Coachella music festival in Palm Springs in April.

They have tour dates booked up until September, including Europe and America.

The rumours began when Kiwi singer-songwriter Connan Mockasin sent out a tweet saying he'd be coming back to New Zealand with Radiohead.

He said: "I won't be coming home for camp [A Low Hum] but will be with Radiohead later in the year."

Radiohead haven't performed in New Zealand for more than a decade.
