Setlist from RTE:
The Greatest Denier
Kingdom Of Rust
Black + White
The Cedar Room
Here’s what I have been able to find:
It proved to be a very mellow affair on the whole, played to an enthusiastic crowd of sing-along out-of-tuners (there are no prizes for guessing that the bars shut promptly at 10pm)! Most of the set came from this year’s Kingdom of Rust album, including set opener Jetstream, 10:03, and the album’s titular track. Unsurprisingly, they also found time for a few old reliables such as Pounding, Black and White Town, and the inevitable show closer in the superlative There Goes the Fear.

Almost predictably, UK band Doves played one of the best sets of the weekend, the edgier material from recent album Kingdom of Rust sitting happily alongside their older material, with finale There Goes The Fear one of the highlights of the weekend.
The O2 stage is rescued by a reliably brilliant show from Doves, drawing an impressive number in spite of being up against Bloc Party on the main stage.
