The Big Pink played an afternoon show at the Isle Of Wight Festival today (June 13), covering Beyonce's 'Sweet Dreams' as part of their set.

Milo Cordell, Robbie Furze and co played a trip hop-esque, slowed-down version of the song in the Big Top tent, later ending the set with their biggest hit and fan favourite 'Dominos'.

Earlier in the set, they played songs including 'Too Young To Love' and 'Tonight', taken from last year's debut album 'A Brief History Of Love'.

Before heading offstage the band – drummer Akiko Matsuura wearing a pink swimming costume-style suit, while her bandmates all wore black – dropped their instruments and thanked the crowd.

The Big Pink played:

'Too Young To Love'
'At War With The Sun'
'Velvet'
'Crystal Visions'
'Tonight'
'Sweet Dreams'
'Dominos'
