Hadouken! covered The Prodigy's 'Breathe' during their afternoon set today (August 22) on the NME/Radio 1 Stage at Leeds Festival.

Before the song, a UK Number One single in 1996, vocalist James Smith told the crowd introduced the cover from the electro giants.

"We're going to play a cover now, it's by the best fucking band in the world!" he told the crowd.

The five-piece, who were formed in Leeds, also got the crowd to chant "Yorkshire, Yorkshire" at the end of their final song, 'That Boy That Girl'.

One of the highlights proved to be 'Crank It Up', which Smith explained was the band's favourite song to play live.

Hadouken! played:

'Get Smashed Gatecrash'
'Liquid Lives'
'What She Did'
'Mr Misfortune'
'Crank It Up'
'Leap Of Faith'
'That Boy That Girl'
