April Fool’s on the internet may have become a day for your most-frequented websites to try and show off their own hit-and-mess senses of humour, but we can assure you that there are no tricks up our sleeves! Unfortunately, we can’t make the same promise for your favourite musicians, who, enjoy playing tunes as much as they enjoy playing pranks on fans and audiences.

Whether it’s playful promises of an Icelandic frost coming to chill the music of Led Zeppelin, or Coldplay threatening that even outer space itself isn’t safe from their inescapable music, we’ve rounded up ten of the best pranks pulled off by musicians you love.

Exclusive videos, interviews, contests & more.
