Odd Future prompted an unprecedented stage invasion at Primavera Sound, encouraging fans to defy security guards and mount the Pitchfork Stage at the end of their set at the Barcelona festival.

Hundreds of fans vaulted the barrier as Tyler, The Creator and band OFWGKTA (full name Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) put on an intense performance in Parc del Forum, leaving security guards helpless to resist the mass infiltration.

Punters punctuated the set with chants ‘Wolf Gang‘, with Tyler revealing he found it “weird” that his controversial rap collective had such a passionate fan base despite speaking a “whole different language”.

Later in the evening, DJ Shadow put on an impressive set in the Llevant Stage, positioned inside arotating sphere amid stunning visuals.

The last day of the festival gained an extra buzz after home town football team FC Barcelona triumphed in the Champion’s League final during a match aired on big screens at the festival site.

Primavera Sound 2011 has featured performances from, amongst others, Pulp, PJ Harvey, Yuck and Sufjan Stevens. Click here for the full Primavera Sound Festival 2011 review.
