The Futureheads celebrated the forthcoming wedding of frontman Barry Hyde during their T In The Park headline show tonight (July 11).

Hyde is set to marry Dananananaykroyd bassist Laura Donaghey in his hometown of Sunderland tomorrow (July 12), and had to leave immediately after the show in the King Tuts Wah-Wah Tent to prepare for his nuptials.
