Little Boots sang a rendition of 'Happy Birthday' for her brother Henry at Leeds Festival today (August 30).

Victoria Hesketh, who was in a jubilant mood throughout the gig on the NME/Radio 1 Stage, led the crowd through the song before set closer 'Stuck On Repeat'.

She also encouraged fans to be "even louder than Reading" - which she played on Friday (August 28) - before blasting out previous single 'New In Town'.

The track was greeted with a rapturous reception, while other songs from her debut album 'Hands - such as 'Meddle and 'Click' - inspired fans to clap along.

Her current Top 10 hit 'Remedy' was also enthusiastically received by the dancing throng, who bellowed back the song's chorus at the diminutive singer.

Little Boots played:

'Earthquake'
'New In Town'
'Meddle'
'Click'
'Mathematics'
'Symmetry'
'Remedy'
'Stuck On Repeat'
