Dutch Uncles covered 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World' during their set, as Summer Sundae Weekender 2011's final day got into full swing.

The Manchester band played the Tears For Fears classic while performing on The Rising Stage, with singer Duncan Wallis showing off his trademark jerky dance moves.

He also lamented the Sony distribution centre fire in Enfield, which destroyed all the remaining copies of debut album ‘Cadenza’, announcing that set highlight ‘The Ink’ would be “released as a single instantly” to try and counteract the loss.

Earlier, The Phantom Band revealed during a well-received set on the Indoor Stage that it would be their “last show for a while”, joking that they were “joining the army.”

Preceding them, The Antlers showcased songs from their cult record ‘Hospice’ and new album ‘Burst Apart’, ending on an anthemic ‘Putting The Dog To Sleep’.

Elsewhere, Tom Williams & The Boat played an early slot on the Rising Stage, running through the likes of ‘Like You’ and ‘See My Evil’ with Williams resplendent in a Tom Vek t-shirt.

Main Stage performers so far today included My First Tooth, The Leisure Society and Young Knives, with Example and headliners McFly due to play later this evening, with Warpaint, Everything Everything and Blood Red Shoes set to play indoors.
