Mystery Jets trash stage at Leeds Festival

'Two Doors Down' band get riotous after set is cut short

Mystery Jets trashed stage equipment at Leeds Festival after their set was cut short.

Following the band’s first four songs, including recent singles ‘Young Love’ and ‘Two Doors Down’, it’s believed the group were informed they had eight minutes left to play.

However, after performing ‘Half In Love With Elizabeth’, Mystery Jets were told by stage officials to stop the set.

While the band knocked over microphones and monitors, bassist Kai Fish appeared to attempt to push roadies away from dismantling their equipment.

Despite this, the band were forced to leave the stage, while the crowd booed and threw bottles and cups.

It’s currently unknown what caused the time restrictions on the band’s set to occur.

Mystery Jets played:


‘Diamonds In The Dark’

‘Young Love’

‘Two Doors Down’

‘Half In Love With Elizabeth’
