Kings Of Leon headlined V Festival in Chelmsford last night playing a bunch of new tracks for the huge crowd.
The Followill’s debuted Immortals, Radioactive and Southbound from their new album for their fans in the Essex countryside.
The group were backed by a large lighting and video display as they ran through hits including Sex On Fire and On Call. Use Somebody and Knocked Up were both played during the encore.
MTV also spied Virgin supremo Richard Branson wandering through the crowd during KoL’s headline set.
Earlier in the day Florence and the Machine was an undoubted success on the second stage, helped by a huge band.
From her opening track Drumming Song the audience sung nearly every word of the tracks from her Lungs album.
Highlights included a string-laden Cosmic Love, Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) and You Got The Love, dedicated to Dizzee Rascal- spotted by MTV wandering around backstage.
Flo’ also played a new song called Heavy In Your Arms which featured a signature gentle opening but a more bass-y drum sound when it kicked in.
Paloma Faith was impressive on the same stage earlier in the day with hits like Stone Cold Sober and New York.
Tinie Tempah performed his hits Frisky and Pass Out to a huge audience while White Lies, Stereophonics and Paul Weller were all impressive.
Celebs spotted backstage at the starry event included Hollywood stars Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint and various TV presenters and popsters.
Tonight at Chelmsford will see Kasabian headline V Festival while the above bands head to the northern leg of the event in Staffordshire.
