The Prodigy brought Bestival to a riotous climax last night (September 12) with a high-octane hits show.

Britain's superstar ravers put the UK festival season to bed, along with the campaign for their career-renewing album 'Invaders Must Die' on the Main Stage at Robin Hill Park.

Flanked by frontmen Keith Flint and Maxim Reality, the band powered through old classics like 'Voodoo People' and Firestarter alongside new favourites 'Omen' and 'Warriors' Dance'.

The band will now head back to the studio to work on a new album.

However while The Prodigy headlined the Main Stage, it fell to LCD Soundsystem to close the festival. James Murphy's group performed in the Big Top at 1am (BST), keeping the party going well into the night with the likes of 'Drunk Girls', 'Yeah' and 'I Can Change' included in the setlist.

Meanwhile, all across the site Bestival's traditionally colourful antics came to a dramatic close. In the Arcadia arena, revellers saw dancers perform lavish acrobatics on and around the dance spider, with bodybuilders brandishing flamethrowers from the top of podiums, while out in the Magic Meadow a wooden treehouse was ceremonially burned to the ground, as a massive firework display brought the 2010 event to its climax.
