Opening with 'Bed Of Nails', the group played a 60-minute set drawn from their three albums including tracks such as 'The Devil's Crayon', 'Two Dancers' and 'Watch Me'.

"This is our last song but don't worry, you've got hours and hours til dawn," Thorpe told the audience before the band finished their set with 'End Come Too Soon'.

Wild Beasts played:

'Bed Of Nails'
'We Still Got The Taste Dancing On Our Tongues'
'The Devil's Crayon'
'Loop The Loop'
'Two Dancers'
'Reach A Bit Further'
'Watch Me'
