Band play in the John Peel tent in the final day of this year's bash

Friendly Fires played an afternoon slot in the John Peel tent on the final day of this year’s Glastonbury festival today (June 29).

The band played a frenetic set of indie/dance rock to the half-full tent in the sunny afternoon, with a set including ‘Your Love’ and ‘Paris’.

“Do you like house music?” frontman Ed Macfarlane asked the crowd before playing the aforementioned ‘Your Love’, prompting cheers from the crowd before the band broke into the heavy, dance music-inspired song.

The dancey vibe was amped up during ‘On Board’, the pumping electro beats of which got the front row waving their arms in approval.

The biggest cheers of the set were saved for ‘Paris’, with the John Peel Stage crowd going up a notch as they danced along to the melodic chorus.

The band ended their set with ‘Ex-Lover’, which involved the band members grabbing various percussion instruments and playing a climactic tribal drum-style finish to their set.

Friendly Fires played:


‘Your Love’

‘In The Hospital’

‘On Board’


‘White Diamonds’


‘Ex Lover’
