Jake Bugg played a secret acoustic set at Reading Festival this afternoon (August 23) on the BBC Introducing stage.

Billed as a special guest, BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens introduced the Nottingham-born troubadour to the stage at 2.40pm. Bugg played a six song set featuring tracks from his 2012 self-titled debut and its 2013 follow-up 'Shangri-La' ahead of his slot on the Main Stage before headliners Arctic Monkeys this evening.

Kicking off with 'Me And You' on acoustic guitar, he followed it up with 'There's A Beast And We All Feed It' before he got the crowd singing for 'Trouble Town'.
