The View 'rock' the Leeds Festival

The View rocked the Leeds Festival this afternoon (August 29) with a lively set on the Main Stage.

The Dundonians dipped into their two albums - 'Hats Off To The Buskers' and 'Which Bitch?' - for a crowd pleasing show at Bramham Park.

Kicking off their set with 'Glass Smash' singer Kyle Falconer declared the band's intentions early on. "Hello Leeds, we're ready to rock," he told the crowd.

He then dedicated 'Wasted Little DJ's to the "girls in Dundee" which the song was originally based on before following it up with hit single '5Rebbeccas'.

The band then suffered a momentary technical hitch which bassist Kieren Webster apologised for. "We're having a bit of a technical problem at the side of the stage which should be sorted in a minute," he said before he filled in time by asking the crowd: "Did you see Arctic Monkeys last night? Were they good eh?"

He then took centre stage for three songs - 'One-Off Pretender', 'Skag Trendy' and 'Realisation', which the band dedicated to Scotland - before the band kicked their set up a gear with hit singles 'Same Jeans' and 'Superstar Tradesman'.
