Indie survivors Doves are widely tipped to scoop this year's Mercury Music Prize with their latest album Kingdom of Rust. Occupying the same Saturday sundown slot in the Obelisk Arena as Elbow did last year - who then went on to win the coveted award a couple of months later - maybe some of their luck will rub off on them.
Doves' solid tunes are well suited to the sunset - the set opened with the epic Jetstream and they didn't stray too far from the script, delivering lots of jangly guitars and uplifting melodies. Highlights of the show included Winter Hill, the melancholy Black and White Town and There Goes the Fear.
