Peace asked couples to "make love" during their mid-afternoon set at T In The Park today (July 13).

Harry Koisser, lead singer of the Worcester four-piece, suggested fans at the front at the barrier got intimate together while the band played a sensual 'California Daze'. Thankfully, no members of the crowd got down and dirty to the track.

The band played a festival-friendly set of tracks from their 2013 debut album 'In Love', including set-opener 'Follow Baby' and 'Wraith', but they also included a cover of Disclosure's 'White Noise', which sneakily segued into Pink Floyd's 'Another Brick In The Wall'. They finished with 'Lovesick'.

Opening the King Tut's Wah Wah Hut stage today was Swim Deep, who played their sun-drenched anthems to the early-risers. "How's it going you lively bastards," said singer Austin Williams as he greeted the audience after 'Francisco'. "It's 12 O'clock! I didn't expect to see so many of you here," he then added.

In front of an enthusiastic crowd who sang nearly every line of their songs, despite the Birmingham band's debut album 'Where The Heaven Are We' not due out until August 5, Swim Deep thrilled with tracks such as 'The Sea' – which Williams dedicated to a recently engaged couple – and 'She Changes The Weather'. The band also threw in a cover of Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' and finished with 'King City'.

Elsewhere, playing to the busiest crowd yet at the Transmissions Stage, Irish rhythm and blues four-piece The Strypes got the whole tent moving with their selection of old covers – including Bo Diddley's 'You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover' – and their own original tracks, including 'Blue Collar Jane'. The crowd especially enjoyed a raucous version of 'Hometown Girls'.

Meanwhile, on the BBC Introducing… stage, Radar favourites PAWS and Baby Strange played short, sharp sets in front of a strong following of fans. The later of the two Glasgow-based groups treated the early-afternoon crowd with a storming version of new single 'Friend', alongside set highlight 'Pure Evil'.

T In The Park continues today with headline performances from Rihanna, Beady Eye, Alt-J and My Bloody Valentine. Last night saw Mumford & Sons joined on stage by a bagpiper, as they headlined day one of the festival in Balado, Scotland.
