The Drums played an intimate campfire show in the early hours of this morning (June 27) in the Strummerville area of Glastonbury.

The New York four-piece played their set on the area's tiny bunting-laden stage, playing through small amps in front of a campfire and a few hundred festival-goers.

The timing of the set had been kept secret with the area largely unmarked, lending a sense of surprise to the show.

"We're a little delusional," frontman Jonathan Pierce said during the set, referring to the band's hectic gigging schedule. They're set to play Glastonbury's John Peel Stage later today.

The band played beneath a silhouette projection of Joe Strummer. The area is named after the late Clash legend, who used to host Glastonbury parties there.

More bands, including Mumford and Sons, are set to play late-night shows at Strummerville later in the festival.

The Drums played:

'Best Friend'
'Make You Mine'
'Book Of Stories'
'Skipping Town'
'I Need Fun In My Life'
'Forever And Ever Amen'
'Let's Go Surfing'

NME will be coming live from Glastonbury throughout the weekend. Head to NME.COM/glastonbury for the latest festival news.
