Lightspeed Champion unveils new songs at Glastonbury

Dev Hynes and co. bring a 'fat rave' to the festival

Lightspeed Champion performed two new songs during his set on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury today (June 27).

However, Dev Hynes joked that fans should “go and get stocked up at the herbal highs tent” rather than listen to the new songs, titled ‘Marlene’ and ‘Kill Me Baby Won’t You Kill Me’.

Taking to the stage twirling around a cape, Hynes told the crowd to get ready for a “fat rave”, before playing a set consisting mostly of tracks from his debut album ‘Falling Off The Lavender Bridge’ – including ‘Galaxy Of The Lost’ and ‘Devil Tricks For A Bitch’.

Before playing closer ‘Midnight Surprise’, Hynes invited the crowd to wish his sister Louise a happy birthday.

Lightspeed Champion played:

‘Galaxy Of The Lost’

‘Dry Lips’


‘Tell Me What It’s Worth’

‘Kill Me Baby Won’t You Kill Me’

‘Devil Tricks For A Bitch’

‘No Surprise’

‘Midnight Surprise’
