Springsteen on the Pyramid Stage. The 59-year-old, who has sold 120 million records worldwide, ignored repeated requests for 'Born In The USA', instead playing a more thoughtful set that included a cover of the Civil War-era folk standard 'Hard Times', penned in 1855. Photo: Andy Willsher

Pete Doherty on The Other Stage, Saturday afternoon. Coming onstage wearing a gold and black military jacket, Doherty headbutted his microphone and waved to the massive crowd, who cheered him back heartily. Opening song 'The Last Of The English Roses' saw the singer/guitarist joined by two ballerinas.

Doherty played an impromptu cover of Talking Heads' 'Psycho Killer'. However, the star was left red-faced when he forgot the words to the song, much to his and the audience's amusement. "I'm fucked if I know the second verse," he mumbled. Photo: Guy Eppel

La Roux in the Dance Village, Saturday afternoon. Elly Jackson packed out the tent, although the gig didn't really come alive until she played hit single 'In For The Kill'. She started off the gig in a bad mood because someone had drenched the stage in dry ice without her consent. Photo: Andy Whitton
