Haim joined Mumford and Sons on the Gentlemen Of The Road day stage in the Avalon Cafe this afternoon at Glastonbury Festival.

The band took to the stage in the small, packed-out tent, curated by Mumford & Sons, at 5.45pm, opening with 'Honey And I'.

"How the fuck is everyone doing today?" shouted bass player Este Haim before the band launched into a singalong version of 'Forever'. They followed it with 'The Wire' and their cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Oh Well' (accompanied by Mumford & Sons' Winston Marshall) before all four members of Mumford & Sons joined Haim onstage to perform a cover of The Rolling Stones' 'Dead Flowers'.

"How was that with a bit of Mumford & Sons for you?" Este Haim said before the two bands launched into another Rolling Stones cover – 'Honky Tonk Women'. After the song, Marcus Mumford grabbed the mic, telling the crowd, "That's Haim, everybody" as they all went offstage.

Prior to Haim's appearance, Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwane of Mumford & Sons appeared onstage for the last song of Michael Kiwanuka's set in the small Avalon Cafe.

The three members of the band – who headlined the Pyramid Stage last year – covered Neil Young's 'Dance Dance Dance' with Kiwanuka. They were also joined by members of Bear's Den and The Staves for the track, which finished with Marcus Mumford high-fiving Kiwanuka before saying, "Give it up for Michael Kiwanuka and his amazing band, ladies and gents."

The appearance of the band members – minus banjo player Winston Marshall – marks for the first performance from the band since they announced their hiatus last year, when they finished touring their Grammy Award-winning second album, 'Babel'.
