The Killers covered Scottish band Travis as they brought T In The Park 2013 to a close last night (July 14).

Lead singer Brandon Flowers introduced the cover by talking about his and guitarist Dave Keuning's days before the band formed, playing cafes and bars in Las Vegas. "We used to play acoustic nights," said Flowers. "We'd play 'Under The Gun', 'Mr Brightside' and this next song. Travis gave us hope," he added before he and Keuning performed a short version of the Scottish band's track 'Side'.

The Killers pulled a huge crowd for the headline set on the Main Stage, although the band were over 20 minutes late. Walking on stage to Big Country's 'In A Big Country', the band launched straight into 'Somebody Told Me'. 'Spaceman' followed, along with 'The Way It Was', before 'Smile Like You Mean It', which got a big cheer from the crowd.

It was followed by a piano-teaser version of 'Human' before 'Bling (Confession Of A King)' and the band's first cover of their set; Joy Division's 'Shadowplay'. They then played 'Miss Atomic Bomb' and a full band version of 'Human'.

A cover of Travis' 'Side' followed soon after and they finished their main set with 'All These Things That I've Done'. An encore of 'When You Were Young' and a crowd-pleasing 'Mr Brightside' was then played.

At the King Tut's Wah Wah Hut tent, Yeah Yeah Yeahs headlined to a constantly expanding crowd. Entering to recent single 'Sacrilege', the New York trio, fronted by singer Karen O who was sporting a red fringed jacket and yellow top, powered through a comprehensive set taking in a large portion of songs from this year's 'Mosquito' alongside the rest of their back catalogue.

Playing a fan-friendly early portion of the slot, the band then performed the likes of 'Heads Will Roll', 'Mosquito' and 'Cold Light' before O exited for a brief interlude. Guitarist Nick Zinner then egged the crowd on with the opening riff to 'Zero' before the singer returned sporting a leather jacket to huge cheers. Finishing up with an older selection of songs, the trio played 'Maps', stopping for a brief interlude to sing Happy Birthday to a friend of the band, and finished with a huge crowd sing-a-long to 'Date With the Night'

Earlier in the day, Frank Ocean soothed the crowd with tracks from his album 'Channel Orange', including 'Forest Gump', 'Bad Religion' and 'Super Rich Kids'. Ocean also started an argument with Taco – a member of Odd Future – who was watching from a viewing platform situated on the stage.

On the Transmission Stage, Chvrches received a homecoming welcome when they played an early evening show. Opening with 'Lies' – the track that first got them attention – the electro-pop trio played a set containing songs from their forthcoming debut album, 'The Bones Of What You Believe', due out on September 23.

Meanwhile, Foals played to a small crowd – prior to David Guetta – on the Radio 1 stage. The Oxford group gave it their all, with lead singer Yannis Phillppakis venturing out into the crowd on a number of occasions. Their set included songs from recent new album 'Holy Fire' and old favourites such as 'Spanish Sahara and set-closer 'Two Steps Twice'.
