Wild Beasts played an afternoon show at Glastonbury this afternoon (June 26) on the John Peel Stage.

The Kendal orchestral-pop band played a set featuring songs mainly taken from their lauded 2009 album 'Two Dancers'.

Playing in front of screens lit up with "WB" lettering, frontman Hayden Thorpe, with his distinctive falsetto, led the band through songs including 'This Is Our Lot' and the Arcade Fire-esque 'All The King's Men', which earned cheers when announced.

Wild Beasts played:

'The Fun Powder Plot'
'This Is Our Lot'
'All The King's Men'
'Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants'
'Two Dancers (I)'
'Two Dancers (II)'
'We Still Got The Taste Dancin' On Our Tongues'
'Devil's Crayon'
'Hooting And Howling'
