Editors give Isle Of Wight Festival an industrial edge

But are they responsible for the Main Stage's sinister giant crane?

Editors gave the Isle Of Wight Festival an industrial soundtrack as they played this evening (June 13).

With the Main Stage dwarfed by a sinister-looking giant crane behind it – set to be used in Pink's set later tonight – the band's apocalyptic visions felt strangely appropriate.

Kicking off with third album title track 'In This Light And On This Evening', the band sparked off singalongs for the likes of 'Munich' and 'The Racing Rats'.

Barely speaking throughout the set, except to thank the crowd, Tom Smith and co finished with 'Papillon'.

Editors played:

'In This Light And On This Evening'
'An End Has A Start'
'Bones'
'Bullets'
'Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool'
'Blood'
'Munich'
'The Racing Rats'
'Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors'
'No Sound But The Wind'
'Bricks And Mortar'
'Papillon'


NME is coming live from the Download and Isle Of Wight festivals this weekend. Head to NME.COM/festivals for the latest news, photos, videos, blogs and more straight from both sites.
