Paolo Nutini plays sun-drenched set at V Festival
Paolo Nutini got a little helpto get the crowd dancing at the V Festival during a sun-drenched set in Staffordshire this afternoon (August 22).

The Scottish crooner roped in a brass band to help out on four of the tracks he performed.

The star played six tracks from his recent UK Number One album 'Sunny Side Up' alongside crowd favourite 'New Shoes' and one-off track 'Sleepwalking'.

As the singer finished off the former, he joked: "If it wasn't for your shoes what would your feet be like now?"

Paolo Nutini played:

'Alloway Grove'
'High Hopes'
'Pencil Full Of Lead'
'New Shoes'
'Growing Up Beside You'
'These Streets'
'Coming Up Easy'
'Jenny Don't Be Hasty'
