Foals overcame technical issues to finish their set on the Pyramid Stage tonight (June 24).
The Oxford five-piece played on Glastonbury’s biggest stage just before tonight’s headliner, Muse, and were coming to the end of their 75-minute set when the sound and visual problems struck.
Launching into set-closer ‘Two Steps Twice’, the sound from the PAs appeared to suddenly cut out, while there were also reports that the live footage of the performance that was being beamed onto the big screens in the stage’s arena suffered a similar fate.
Sections of the crowd tried to signal to the band – who didn’t seem to notice the problems – that they couldn’t hear the music. However, the problem was soon corrected, much to the jubilation of the punters in the Pyramid Stage arena.
Watch fan-shot footage of the incident below.
