Metronomy got the crowds moving during their set at Leeds Festival this afternoon (August 29).

Joseph Mount's band treated fans at the NME/Radio 1 Stage to a set comprising songs from their second album 'Nights Out' - and gave a shout-out to their female fans.

"Are there any females in the audience? This is for all the females," Mount said before 'Radio Ladio'.

He later expressed his hope that their tunes were "contributing to the niceness" of the festival-goers' day.

Other songs which got the masses dancing included 'A Thing For Me' and 'My Heart Rate Rapid', while past single 'Heartbreaker' got the biggest reaction of all.

Metronomy played:

'Nights Out Intro'
'My Heart Rate Rapid'
'On The Motorway'
'Holiday'
'A Thing For Me'
'Heartbreaker'
'The End Of You Too'
'Radio Ladio'
'On Dancefloors'
