Pendulum challenge T In The Park crowd to be ‘better than Glastonbury’

Band draw massive crowd for NME/Radio 1 Stage set

Pendulum used their slot on T In The Park‘s NME/Radio 1 Stage tonight (July 12) to challenge the Scottish audience to be better than those at their Glastonbury gig in June.

The group drew a massive crowd to see their set, with many fans close to the stage moshing throughout.

“This is one of the best festivals we did last year,” MC Ben Mount told the huge crowd who had packed the outdoor stage to see the metal/drum’n’bass outfit.


“Anyone see Glastonbury on TV yeah?” Mount continued. “You wanna be better than Glastonbury right? OK, from the back, I wanna hear you scream.”

He then got the entire crowd shouting, as the band kicked into ‘Propane Nightmares’.

Pendulum had much of the crowd singing and dancing along for ‘Tarantula’, while elsewhere in their set they played the electro version of ‘Different’. The song segued straight into their cover of Calvin Harris‘ recent Number One single ‘I’m Not Alone’, garnering applause from the masses in the audience.

The band’s bastardisation of the song was a success, with the track’s memorable keyboard line going down particularly well.
