Leicester-based rock band Kasabian drew a sell-out audience of 9,750 determined to have a good time, if the queues at the beer tent were anything to go by.

Exploding on to the music scene in 2004 with their eponymous debut album, 14 years on Kasabian's music has lost none of its energy.

The set started with King for the Day, prompting the crowd to rush to the stage and throw their pints in the air. So followed a set including Shoot the Runner, Club Foot and Empire.

The atmospheric setting of the Thetford Forest never pales, and as the sun went down the stage came alive with an electrifying light show and the slick and pulsating performance.

When the main set finished at 10.15pm many people started exiting the arena, no doubt to avoid the sometimes lengthy queues to leave the site. However, those who left early missed a triumphant encore, closing with the euphoric Fire.

The only downside was seeing empty beer cups and discarded picnics strewn across the forest site by the end. It was a shame not everyone could make use of the many bins available.
