Mumford & Sons play secret Glastonbury campfire show

Marcus and the gang play short Strummerville set

Mumford and Sons ensured that the secret sets at Glastonbury weren’t just limited to Radiohead and Pulp this weekend (June 24-26), playing one of their own at the Strummerville area of the site.

The band attracted an enormous crowd when they played the Other Stage at the festival yesterday (their set is pictured below), but performed the impromptu show in a somewhat more intimate setting in the campsite area, which is named after the late Clash legend Joe Strummer.

Whether the band would play at all today was touch and go as singer Marcus Mumford was reportedly suffering from a sore throat, but he made it to the gig at 10:45pm (BST) for a five-song set.

“It’s a good secret spot of goodness at Glastonbury,” he declared of the Strummerville area during the show, which included a cover of Neil Young‘s ‘Dance Dance Dance’.

Mumford and Sons played:

‘Roll Away Your Stone’
‘Lover’s Eyes’
‘Dance Dance Dance’
‘Nothing Is Written’
‘The Cave’
