The 10 best fan-shot Field Day 2012 videos

  1. Grimes

    Maestro Grimes packed out a tent and then some with her early-evening performance. After some minor technical hiccups she launched an all-out pop assault with the terrific Circumambient.
  2. Com Truise

    In the darker reaches of the DJ tent, the electronic musician with a spoonerism for a name was busy fashioning the future.
  3. SBTRKT

    SBTRKT’s live performance of Something Goes Right, with the masked man on the drums and Sampha on the keyboard and vocals, was a rousing sing and clap-a-long.
  4. Beirut

    However, it was probably the folk emsemble Beirut who took the prize for crowd participation with an impromptu east London country dance.
  5. The Internet ft. Tay Walker

    One of the most far-reaching branches of the OFWGKTA tree helped to open the day with their psych-soul sound. Syd the Kid and Matt Martians of The Internet moved aside briefly to let collaborator and contributor Tay Walker shine on Karma.
  6. Kindness ft. Dev Hynes

    Kindness was accompanied by very special guest Dev Hynes on the guitar in their set. Together they ripped up the stage with the juicy jam Doigsong.
  7. Metronomy

    Metronomy also came through with a homegrown groove, their specialty being cool and crisp funk fresh from the Devon coast.
  8. Mazzy Star

    One of the more established performers on the bill, 90s rockers Mazzy Star’s rendition of their hit song Fade Into You was all guitar, tambourine and vocal and sounded simply lovely.
  9. Modeselektor

    Fellow veterans Modeselektor closed a dazzling set with the bittersweet thump and soar of Berlin.
  10. Franz Ferdinand

    Franz Ferdinand were the last band to play to the largest stage and generously treated fans to a string of their biggest hits.
