Julian Casablancas annoyed festival security guards and wore a stray Spiderman outfit during his Red Bull Bedroom Jam Futures Stage headline show at T In The Park tonight (July 10).

The Strokes frontman played a solo set consisting of old and new songs to a small crowd, and was in playful mood throughout.

Despite appearing to be suffering from a cough, Casablancas was keen to interact as much as possible with his audience. During 'Out Of The Blue' he jumped into the front rows of the crowd, though not before picking up a blow-up Spiderman doll which was lying on the floor.

Wearing the life-size plastic doll on his head, he then proceeded to sing the song while being mobbed by fans. Casablancas then caused havoc among security guards by running the entire length of the barrier to sing the rest of the song at the very edge of the tent – despite hardly any fans standing there. A small group who had run along with him then grabbed and hugged him before he returned to the stage.

The biggest reaction from the crowd came when Casablancas included songs by The Strokes, particularly set-opener 'Hard To Explain', as well as a short burst of 'Ask Me Anything' and 'The Modern Age'.

"Time's against us, so this is gonna have to be a quick encore," Casablancas told the crowd as his set drew to a close. He then paid tribute to the T In The Park audience, saying "I hope you've enjoyed spending your time with us."

Julian Casablancas played:

'Hard To Explain'
'Out Of The Blue'
'River Of Brakelights'
'Electricityscape'
'11th Dimension'
'Automatic Stop'
'Ask Me Anything'
'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Today'
'Glass'
'The Modern Age'
'4 Chords'
