Vampire Weekend packed out the King Tut's Wah-Wah Tent at the T In The Park festival this afternoon (July 13), with the New York band thanking the crowd for their support by dedicating a song to "the Scottish summer".

The tent was packed to the rafters, as it was for The Ting Tings' T In The Park set earlier in the day.

The crowd extended beyond the boundaries of the tent as punters scrambled to get a view of the quartet.

The audience even greeted the band with a new chant: "Vampire! Vampire! Vampire fucking Weekend", delighting the band early in the set.

"This is the last show of our tour," explained frontman Ezra Koenig before playing 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa'. "We'd like to dedicate this song to the Scottish summer."

Koenig encouraged the crowd to get involved with 'One (Blake's Got A New Face)' later in the show, shouting the chorus before his band began the song, saying: "We really need you to sing along."

The crowd responded with vigour, bellowing the chorus, "Blake's got a new face", back to the band.

Vampire Weekend ended their set with 'Walcott' after Koenig promised the band would return to the country soon.

"We can't stay away from Scotland for long," he admitted, earning another huge cheer.

Vampire Weekend played:

'Mansard Roof'
'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa'
'One (Blake's Got A New Face)'
'I Stand Corrected'
'Oxford Comma'
