Bjork closed Bestival 2011 last night (September 11) with a 17-song set which focussed heavily on new album 'Biophilia'.

Wearing a light up headdress and joined by a dancing choir onstage, the quirky star stunned the crowd by appearing to shoot fireworks out of her hands during the show.

She played the likes of 'Moon', 'Thunderbolt' and 'Cosmogony' from her latest record, before ending with older tracks 'Hyperballad' and 'Declare Independence'.

Pendulum and The Cure also headlined the weekend, which also saw PJ Harvey, Primal Scream, Public Enemy and The Village People play as the part of the bill.

Earlier this summer, Bjork performed her new album as part of the Manchester International Festival at the Campfield Market Hall in the city.

Fans in the crowd at Bestival 2011 said that the new material "blends perfectly with the hits" live and that it was the "best way" to end the weekend.

Bjork played:

'Thunderbolt'
'Moon'
'Crystalline'
'Hollow'
'Dark Matter'
'Hidden Place'
'Mouth's Cradle'
'Isobel'
'One Day'
'Virus'
'Cosmogony'
'Joga'
'Sonnets/Unrealities'
'Where Is The Line?'
'Mutual Core'
'Hyperballad'
'Declare Independence'
