Fans at the festival – which has been the subject of a Twitter account cataloguing its general debauchery – seem instead to have opted for Red Hot Chili Peppers, whose main stage set clashed with that of the New York electro punks. Given that Murphy’s band’s return has been hailed as something of a second coming from music fans across the board, that’s perhaps a little surprising. Well, perhaps Flea did one of his thrilling bass solos.
Anyway, LCD Soundsytem fans at the festival conveyed their dismay via social media and, dear oh dear, it’s a sorry sight indeed. James Murphy, where are your friends tonight?

While Steven lashed out
Ridiculously poor turn out for @lcdsoundsystem at T in the Park
Seems to sum up the way the festival has descended into utter squalor

And David sassed the festival quite beautifully
Just watched the highlights of LCD Soundsystem's set at T in the Park. Criminal turnout. A festival for part-time music fans.
