The Cribs close John Peel Stage on day one of Glastonbury 2008

Band pull in impressive late night crowd

The Cribs played the last set on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury festival tonight (June 27).

Despite the pull of Pyramid Stage headliners Kings Of Leon, the Wakefield trio packed out the big top tent.

Taking to the stage at 11pm (BST), it was the band’s second track, ‘Hey Scenesters!’, which set the tone for the trio’s gig with fans chanting back every word.

‘Martell’ got the gathered John Peel Stage crowd singing along, including a girl wearing only a bra who spent most of the gig on top of someone’s shoulders.

However, it was recent hit ‘Men’s Needs’ that saw people rushing to the front of the stage to dance.

Before penultimate track ‘Wrong Way To Be’ frontman Ryan declared: “Thank you very much… I hope you all have a very fantastic Glastonbury festival.”

The Jarman brothers then got the crowd clapping along before rounding off the night with ‘Be Safe’.
