Hot Chip played a DJ set in tribute to Prince tonight (June 25) at Glastonbury.

Taking to the decks in the festival's lively late-night Block9 quarter, members of the London band served up a greatest hits setlist - billed as "Hot Chip Remembers Prince" - to a delighted throng of festival-goers who'd gathered to celebrate the life of the late singer-songwriter.

Filled to capacity well before their appointed 00:30am stage time - hundreds of people were still being turned away from Block9 well after the DJ set had started - those lucky enough to get into the "wonderland" were treated to an uninterrupted slew of Prince hits.

Twitter user Dave Robson confirmed that "thousands" of punters had attended the event. Check out his tweets, as well as others from those who attended tonight's event, below.
