The LA band join the likes of Roots Manuva and Magnetic Man on the bill

HEALTH helped kick off the music on the Dance Stage at Leeds Festival today (August 28), after sets by Japanese Popstars and Lights.

The LA noise-rockers played an early afternoon set on the stage, which also features the likes of Metronomy and Magnetic Man, with Roots Manuva headlining.

Yesterday (August 27) the tent hosted the Lock Up Stage, with Cancer Bats and Bad Religion playing and Gallows performing a secret show under the name The Rats.

HEALTH played a 40-minute set, including fan favourites ‘We Are Water’ and ‘Die Slow’.

Only speaking to thank the audience, Crystal Castles‘ tour mates concentrated on the music.

‘Nice Girls’
‘Death +’
‘Before Tigers’
‘Glitter Pills’
‘Die Slow’
‘We Are Water’
‘USA Boys’
