Magistrates tell V Festival to ‘get sweaty’

Local lads get Chelmsford's Sessions Tent dancing

Magistrates urged the crowd to bunch up and “get sweaty” during their high energy set at V Festival tonight (August 17).

The Essex four-piece took the stage in the Sessions Tent to a rapturous applause from the small, but committed crowd.

Singer and keyboardist Paul Usher, sporting a gold jacket, told the crowd before ‘Stand And Wait’: “Try and squash in more and get sweaty – it’s sexual – it’s a sexual thing!”

Kicking off with ‘The Inbetweens’ and ‘Anyway You Want Me’, the indie-dance troupe also performed forthcoming single ‘Make This Work’ and ‘Tell Me’.

They closed their half-hour set with ‘Colour Coordination’, with Usher telling the crowd: “You’ve been good to us Chelmsford.”

Magistrates played:

‘The Inbetweens’

‘Anyway You Want Me’

‘Make This Work’

‘She Don’t Wanna Be Alone’
