Mumford and Sons were joined by a bagpiper during their headline set at T In The Park last night (July 12).

The piper played 'Flower Of Scotland' to the crowd during the band's encore, which also included hit tracks 'Winter Winds' and 'The Cave'. The band were the first Main Stage headliner at this year's festival and played a set similar to their own gig at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London last weekend.

Opening with 'Lover's Eyes', the band then launched straight into hit tune 'Little Lion Man' without pausing. "Thank you very much T In The Park," said frontman Marcus Mumford after the track finished. "We're Mumford And Sons," he added as a huge roar erupted from the crowd. The band then followed with 'Whispers In The Dark', 'Holland Road', 'Below My Feet' and a rapturous 'White Blank Page'.

"I dunno who it is, but do you hear those dickheads making a racket over there?" said Marcus Mumford pointing at the Transmission Stage which was playing host to Friday night karaoke. "Shall we drown them out?" he demanded before the band played a crowd-pleasing 'I Will Wait'.

Mumford & Sons finished their well-received Main Stage set with a raucous 'Dust Bowl Dance' before returning to the stage for the aforementioned piped 'Flower Of Scotland', 'Babel', Winter Winds' and 'The Cave'.

'Lovers' Eyes'
'Little Lion Man'

Headlining the King Tut's Wah Wah Hut Stage, Kraftwerk played a 3D show in front of a third-full tent. Wearing Tron-style outfits, the legendary group performed iconic tracks 'Autobahn', 'Tour De France' and finished with 'Trans Europe Express'.

Earlier in the day, in the late afternoon sunshine, Haim took to the Radio One stage to play a short set in front of a small but growing crowd. Opening with 'Better Off', the sister trio played a number of tracks from their forthcoming debut album, although they neglected to play 'Don't Save Me'. They also played their now set-stalwart cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh Well',

"It's fucking hot up here," said bassist Este before 'Falling'. "There's so many sex bitches out there. Yeah, I'm looking at you. And you. And you," she added. The band then followed the track with 'Forever'. The trio finished with a carnival version of 'Let Me Go', with all three sisters playing percussion.

Meanwhile, Jack Bugg upset the crowd by saying "good evening Glasgow", despite being miles outside of the city. Previously, The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson was chastised for similarly getting the location of the festival wrong. However, despite the faux pas, the singer's performance went down well with the crowd, as he played a set comprising of tracks from his self-titled debut album alongside a couple of new songs which he has been working on with legendary producer Rick Rubin.

Finishing with 'Lightning Bolt', Jake Bugg thanked the T In The Park crowd for coming to see him, adding that it was "always a pleasure" to play in front of them.

T In The Park continues today with performances from Rihanna, Alt-J, Dizzee Rascal and My Bloody Valentine.
