Blink-182 have begun their headline set at Leeds Festival 2014, playing in front of a giant Union Jack flag.

The band opened their set in emphatic fashion, playing 'Feelin' This' as the curtain dropped and revealed all three members of the band already on stage.

Immediately after the opening song the trio played 'What's My Age Again?' with Tom DeLonge saying, "Holy shit, we're doing a great job!" when the song finished. The third song in the set was 'Rock Show' with flames emerging from the stage throughout.

Bass player Mark Hoppus told the Main Stage audience that each and every one of them was "going to get a urinary infection this weekend," before the band played 'Up All Night'.

Blink-182's headline set at Leeds Festival is currently ongoing. Check back later for a full report and set list.
