Bombay Bicycle Club joined by samba band at Glastonbury

Eight-piece band play alongside the London indie rockers

Bombay Bicycle Club attracted an enormous crowd at Glastonbury‘s John Peel Stage this afternoon (June 25), with the band joined by an eight-piece samba band for their show.

The four-piece played an energetic set in the sweltering heat and were joined by musicians from the London School Of Samba for set-closer ‘Always Like This’.

The surprise guest players began playing their percussion instruments offstage, then shuffled on as they geared up the rhythm – the crowd clapping along in time.


Earlier in the set Bombay Bicycle Club played songs mainly taken from their debut album ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose’. Frontman Jack Steadman also announced that the band would be making an appearance at the Strummerville site later on in the festival.

Bombay Bicycle Club played:

‘Dust On The Ground’
‘The Hill’
‘Bad Timing’
‘Cancel On Me’
‘What If’
‘How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep’
‘Always Like This’
