Rounding off proceedings for the day was King Charles, the fully facial haired, enigmatic singer/songwriter who treated the packed out Wardrobe basement to a full hour long set of songs. His unique ska infused pop-rock had the audience bobbing up and down with bank holiday delight after a mammoth day of festival goodness.

It was the perfect antidote for the flagging audience enthusiasm after nearly 12 hours of acts, and with his get up and dance holiday anthems having the crowd on their feet, it was clear King Charles was an inspired choice to close the event.

He was in fine form with his Russell Brand meets Captain Jack Sparrow barnet in full vigour, and accompanied by a talented backing band, his songs came to life on stage, and he cruised through his set with an ease and charm that makes you understand that he genuinely loves doing it.

As part of his latest UK tour, fans will do well to check him out after the evidence of his Live At Leeds closing set, which is no mean feat when competing with the likes of Pulled Apart By Horses, The Hold Steady and Albert Hammond Jr who were playing at other venues across the city.
