Vampire Weekend

Listening on the iplayer. (Don't tell) They are putting on one of those chill sets with perfect weather and with a slight buzz would just have you smiling and grooving.   Wishing I was there. *Sigh*:sungum:

Perfect audience and vibe for them. Nice dovetail with the ecological sentiment of the fest and the searing heat.

Will never get above that level, bless em, so they made the sunburnt Sunday slot their own.

Loved loved loved loved loved both sets. Stole the whole weekend for me. Everything about the set at The Park was perfection.

Not a patch on last year's EotR headline set, but still great. Oxford Comma was surprisingly huge.

Couldn't watch them at the park because of the heat. Gutted about it as they are one of my favourite all time bands. Nearly also fucked off home before their set on the pyramid because my feet were so fucked but watching the end of Miley and 70% of the crowd left for the other stage so we were able to easily rock up to th front barrier for a bit of lean releif. 

They are always so lush, Ezra is a humble, lovely bloke and he looked as though he was really enjoying it.

Was that the lass from Haim playing with them? Thought it odd they have her up and not play any of the songs from the album that she sings.

I didn't think that was her? Not a big haim fan so could be wrong.

Nah she's a band member

... and looks nothing like any of Haim

Definitely one of my highlights, we were quite far back with the kids (at the Pyramid) and the crowd around us were loving it, great atmosphere and fab set

This was never my fav of theirs even back in the day but I came back to it recently and was surprised at how intense and spirited the second chorus is. They really drove it home live.

Sadly low on MVOTC material but they’ve cannily bagged a tour purchase from me that way.

I wouldn’t recognise any of Haim if I walked past them, but it was mentioned by someone in the crowd next to me. Thought it was odd if so.

Maybe the set of the weekend for me. Mad props to the direction they've taken.

New Dorp, New York is the one I think you’re after? Really beefy middle one. Big shred energy.

Myself and @Mardy giggled our way through that like two gobshites. Glorious work.

Some very welcome spaces opened up in the field in time to get a good spot with a decent view of them, apart from the sea of discarded cans and food. Really enjoyed them

They've really upped their game live, loved both sets. The new guitarist in particular is amazing, but they're all great.

think I would have been disappointed if not for the fact that I'd seen them at end of the road 

the secret set was really fun but I was desperately shouting at the barrier for giving up the gun, glad I got to hear finger back and m79 though and sunflower was fantastic as was the Fleetwood Mac cover but felt some of the requests were wasted like Hannah hunt and cape cod 

main set was really good too, this life and sympathy sounded great but ending on Jerusalem new York Berlin was a weird choice for me

I think I just get too hung up on songs they don't play though, if I ignore the fact that they didn't play diplomat's son or giving up the gun it was fantastic but didn't come close to end of the road's setlist

Great set, just wished they had played Hannah Hunt and it would have been perfect!
