Years & Years at the 6music stage at Latitude 2015 - Paul Bayfield

There was nosign of a Sunday hangover in the BBC Radio 6Music tent as Years and Years performed to thousands this evening.

The London formed electronica trio kept the tent rocking as they played a string of hits, including a cover of Blu Cantrell's Breathe, much to the delight of the crowd.

The trio were excited to play in front of their fans, as lead singer Olly Alexander, bounced around the stage, and ran up and down the pit, high-fiving those in the front row as he passed.

He acted as if he was one of the thousands watching him and the rest of the group perform.

He had a smile on his face to suggest he was loving every moment.

Last year he was in the crowd watching Robyn, and couldn't believe how many people there were. He added that it was the same again.

On a different night, they could have headlined the stage. Maybe they should have.

The trio were a match for the festival, and it was a perfect festival performance.
