Foals frontman Yannis Philippakis stagedived into the crowd at the iTunes Festival in London tonight (July 4).

The singer leapt into the moshpit at the Roundhouse in much the same vein as he did at Glastonbury just over a week ago, when he dropped down from the stage rigging during 'Electric Bloom'.

Despite being mobbed by the crowd, this time Philippakis managed to keep his shirt on as he returned to the stage to hammer out the song on a single drum snare.

But he managed to smash his mic at the end of the track after swinging it round in a circular motion.

During their hour-long set, the Oxford five-piece played four songs from their new album 'Total Life Forever', including 'Spanish Sahara'. They also played 2008 debut album 'Antidotes'' singles 'Balloons' and 'Cassius'.

Reacting to the raucous crowd, Philippakis declared early on: "This shouldn't be a Sunday night. It doesn't feel like a Sunday night."

Later the band ended their set with 'Two Steps Twice', which saw the singer playing part of the song perched on an amp stack.

Foals played:

'Total Life Forever'
'Cassius'
'Olympic Airways'
'Miami'
'Balloons'
'Blue Blood'
'Alabaster'
'Spanish Sahara'
'Red Socks Pugie'
'Electric Bloom'
'The French Open'
'Two Steps Twice'


Earlier Two Door Cinema Club warmed up proceedings performing tracks from their recent debut 'Tourist History', including 'This Is The Life'.
