Skindred are not to be missed and clearly know it as they keep the full-to-bursting Vans tent waiting to the point of boredom before rocking out something chronic.

The smoke-filled arena is penetrated by a green and red haze as the audience are toyed with.

Between the frenzy of booming vocals and growls of old school metal, a curious comical stance is injected into the mix and the robot is performed metal-style. It doesn’t quite catch on, however ‘Nobody’ gets the tent jumping.

A mix of dance, indie and metal fans headbang in unison – hardcore music diversity at its best.

Relentless Boardmasters 2011 continues tomorrow with performances from Fatboy Slim, Sub Focus and The King Blues.
