Alt-J opened Glastonbury 2013 tonight (June 27), making their Glastonbury festival debut with a secret show at the new-for-2013 William's Green stage.

The band came onstage just before 10.30pm to a packed out tent, opening with the first track of their Mercury Prize-winning debut 'An Awesome Wave'. A smouldering rendition of 'Tessellate' followed to rapturous applause before they launched straight into 'Something Good', with crowd members surfing through the audience.

"Hello Glastonbury! I tell you what, it's pretty fucking amazing saying that," multi-instrumentalist Gus Unger-Hamilton said, before playing 'Dissolve Me'.

"It's only Thursday and you guys are loving it! Awesome," a beaming Unger-Hamilton said, before the intro to debut single 'Matilda'.

The band are due to return tomorrow (June 28) to play their listed slot on The Other Stage at 7.30pm. "If tomorrow's anywhere as good as this, well..." said Unger Hamilton.

Earlier in in the evening Django Django filled the same tent with a set including the tracks 'Storm', 'Skies Over Cairo', 'Default' and an opening 'Hale Bop'.

Alt-J played:

'Intro'
'Interlude 1'
'Tessellate'
'Something Good'
'Dissolve Me'
'Fitzpleasure'
'Matilda'
'Breezeblocks'
'Taro'
