CSS closed the Dance Stage at Reading Festival tonight (August 24) by performing a 13-song set to a packed-out crowd.

Coming onstage to wild applause and a sea of glowsticks, the band kicked-off their set with 'Jager Yoga', the opening track on their latest album 'Donkey'.

Singer Lovefoxxx was wearing her now-traditional multi-coloured catsuit, although tonight (August 24) her clothing featured numerous ribbons, feathers and a fake flower.

Some fans were so eager to see get a better view that they scaled the tent's rigging and climbed the poles, much to the annoyance of security.

Bizarrely, Lovefoxxx also led the crowd through a minute-long chant consisting of the sentence "I'm gonna throw up a ball of hair", revealing that a friend of hers used to sing it to the band to "make us feel happy".

After playing hits 'Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above' and Alala, the band showered the crowd in red confetti, before trashing their amplifiers, screaming into their microphones and finally heading offstage.

CSS played:

'Jager Yoga'
'Meeting Paris Hilton'
'This Month, Day 10'
'Left Behind'
'Off The Hook'
'Rat Is Dead (Rage)'
'Move'
'Music Is My Hot Hot Sex'
'Alcohol'
'Let's Reggae All Night'
'Air Painter'
'Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above'
'Alala'
