Does It Offend You, Yeah? shocked Oxegen out of any Sunday sluggishness with a pounding set on the Dance Arena this afternoon (July 13).

With the sun shining warmly across the site, the dance collective made sure the heat was felt inside the festival's only permanent indoor area - a large warehouse structure on the site - with a high energy set.

With their beats and synths echoing around the hall, despite it being the early afternoon, the Reading band managed to inspire a rave-like vibe as festival-goers danced with their hands in the air under relentless disco lights.

"What's up Oxegen, how you feeling, hot enough for you yet?," asked Morgan Quaintance early in the set.

"How much LSD has been dropped this weekend? How much MDMA?" he asked to loud cheers. "How many of your friends have dropped this weekend?"

With the likes of 'Let's Make Out' and 'Attack Of The 60ft Lesbian Octopus' being played in swift succession, the former Shockwaves NME Awards Tour group ensured the pace remained frantic.

'Dawn Of The Dead''s more conventional song structure provided a brief pause for breath, but the afternoon rave was soon back up to full speed with the audience going ballistic as the set climaxed with 'We Are Rockstars'.

Keep up with all the action from T In The Park and Oxegen Festival this weekend (July 11-13) as it happens on NME.COM.
