Wild Beasts frontman Hayden Thorpe has revealed that he was a part of 'The Reflektors' at Arcade Fire's gig in London's Hyde Park last night (July 3).

As has become customary at Arcade Fire gigs in recent months, the band of papier-mache headed characters made their way onto the stage at the British Summer Time show prior to the band's encore. When on stage they danced to 'Sympathy For The Devil' by The Rolling Stones, who headlined the same festival in 2013.

Earlier this afternoon Thorpe, who provided support for Arcade Fire along with his Wild Beasts bandmates at the festival, tweeted the picture seen at the top of the page along with the caption: "Selfie #Win #imposter."

Another member of The Reflektors was dressed as The Pope for the duration of their brief cameo. Future Islands and Jake Bugg also played on last night's bill but it is not clear if any other musicians followed Thorpe's lead.

Arcade Fire's performance in London represented the Canadian band's last scheduled gig in Europe for 2014. While on stage, Win Butler made fun of the local residents who complained about the British Summer Time concerts when they were announced earlier this year. A full report and setlist can be found here.
