The Prodigy headlined T In The Park’s NME/Radio 1 stage tonight (July 10) - which even saw Keith Flint ride a security guard.

They were going head to head with Eminem on the bill - the Detroit rapper’s presence in the Main Stage headlining slot meant that the Essex band’s set was predominantly attended by hardcore fans of the band, ensuring a riotous atmosphere.

MC Maxim acknowledged the fans' loyalty, frequently shouting out to the crowd to assert that: “If you ain’t fuckin’ here, you ain’t fuckin’ nowhere.”

The Essex group drew heavily from their most recent album, ’Invaders Must Die’ and during ’Warrior’s Dance’ from that record singer Keith Flint ran down into the pit, swiping a Scottish flag from a fan before riding across the front row on a security guard’s shoulders.

After a ferociously-loud rendition of ’Smack My Bitch Up’, the band went off stage before returning to play ’Take Me To The Hospital’, which the crowd sang along to. They closed with ’Their Law’, the band’s tirade against the criminalisation of rave culture, as Flint gurned to the cameras.

The Prodigy played:

’World’s On Fire’
‘Thunda Dub’
‘Warrior’s Dance’
‘Voodoo People’
‘Omen Reprise’
‘Invaders Must Die’
‘Diesel Power’
‘Smack My Bitch Up’
‘Take Me To The Hospital’
‘Out Of Space’
‘Their Law’
