The Prodigy play riotous ‘homecoming’ show at V Festival

Keith Flint and friends bring new tracks to Chelmsford

The Prodigy got the 4Music Stage at Chelmsford‘s V Festival partying tonight (August 16), as they performed in their home county of Essex.

As well as playing classics including ‘Firestarter’ and ‘Breathe’, the band, fronted by Keith Flint and Maxim, performed a number of new tracks, including ‘Worlds On Fire’ and ‘Warrior’s Dance’.

Flint, dressed in a striped blazer sporting the slogan ‘My Dogs Will Kill You’, and Maxim continually jumped down to greet the front rows of the audience.


At one point, Maxim even grabbed a fan’s grey trilby and walked in front of the barrier wearing it.

The band, which also includes producer and arranger Liam Howlett, were joined by a live drummer and guitarist for the set, which saw them flanked by lights shaped as malicious-looking eyes.

The set finished with the group’s 1992 hit ‘Out Of Space’.

The Prodigy played:


‘Their Law’


‘Worlds On Fire’



‘Warrior’s Dance’


‘Action Radar Link’

‘First Warning’


‘Voodoo People’

‘Out Of Space’
