The xx joined by Florence Welch for second Glastonbury 2010 show

Band also cover Bronski Beat during their first weekend at the festival

The xx duetted with Florence And The Machine‘s Florence Welch during their second Glastonbury show of the weekend tonight (June 26).

Playing to a heaving crowd at the John Peel Stage, the band invited Welch to sing on their remixed version of ‘You’ve Got The Love’.

Afterwards they admitted being blown away by their reception at Worthy Farm, particularly as it is their first time at the festival.


It was also the second time an xx song has been played at the festival today, as Shakira covered the band’s ‘Islands’ earlier on during her Pyramid Stage set.

The xx also covered Bronski Beat‘s ‘Smalltown Boy’ during the gig. The XX had previously headlined The Park Stage last night.

The xx played:

‘Smalltown Boy’/’Crystalized’
‘Heart Skipped A Beat’
‘Basic Space’
‘Night Time’
‘You’ve Got The Love’

NME will be coming live from Glastonbury throughout the weekend. Head to NME.COM/glastonbury for the latest festival news.
