Following a triumphant set in Reading on Friday, Paramore headlined Leeds Festival last night (August 23), playing a hit-filled set that, in a sentimental touch, saw singer Hayley Williams bring her younger sister onstage.

It's just a few hours to go before the gates are flung open at Reading and Leeds for this weekend's festival. It's an incredible line-up. Blink 182, Arctic Monkeys, Paramore and Queens Of The Stone Age will be headlining the bill as well as a ton of other bands (here's 40 acts we recommend seeing, for a start). But what if the line-up was decided according to artist popularity on Shazam? You know how it works - you hear a piece of music and the app tells you exactly what it is.

Of course, we published the full thing in the magazine, but thought we'd re-produce it here too. NME
