Art Brut and Glasveags also play Coventry bash
The Enemy, who were headlining the festival for the first time, played the longest set of the day. Coming on to The Specials’ ‘Ghost Town’.
With the fellow Coventry band suitably getting the crowd going, Tom Clarke and co then did his best to beat organisers’ noise levels, telling the crowd “I want it so that you’re too loud for them”.
With loud sing-a-longs for their singles, the the band also played a new song called ‘Don’t Break The Red Tape’.
The Enemy played:
‘Away From Here’
’40 Days And 40 Nights’
‘We’ll Live And Die In These Towns’
‘This Song Is About You’
‘It’s Not OK’
‘Happy Birthday Jane’
‘Don’t Break The Red Tape’
‘You’re Not Alone’
Earlier, Glasvegas had taken to the stage to chants of “You fat bastard” and a tennis ball was thrown on stage at one point, but undeterred, the band played a seven-song set, which included single ‘Geraldine’ and ‘Daddy’s Gone’.
During the start of ‘Moving To LA’, the singer commented on the rainy conditions, by changing his lyrics to sing: “There’s not much glam in the Coventry weather“.
Throughout the set Argos spke about Amy Winehouse (“Stay off crack… Good luck Amy Winehouse“) and Jay-Z’s appearance at Glastonbury (“If Jay-Z was here, he would tell you that he had 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one, and I would say stop being so misogynistic”).
Towards the end, he was dragged into crowd, and had his t-shirt was ripped, but continued with the set.
The festival will conclude tomorrow (July 6) and featuring Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly among others.
