Elbow headlined the Friday night at last year’s Electric Picnic, and turned in a sterling performance that delighted the Picnic folk at the main stage. They ran through the bulk of their hits, with Guy Garvey’s usual stage charm thrown in, this was a great way to wrap up day one of Picnic 2012.

Call them cinematic, call them explosive, Explosions In The Sky are one of the most powerful live forces around. This set at last year’s Electric Picnic was proof of this, as they powered their way through their set on the Main Stage. The Texas outfit have released six studio albums, and show no signs of relenting – they are a truly special band.
