Speaking after their set bassist Max Bloom told NME.COM: “That’s really nice of him [Simon Rix] to come and see us, I have to admit. We never even knew he was in the crowd.”

He added:”It was good to play here though and I was surprised by the size of the crowd because you don’t expect people to wake up early at a festival but they did and it was really nice of them to come and see us.”

Yuck played:

‘The Wall’
‘Holing Out’
‘Suicide Policeman’
‘Get Away’
