Among the highlights on offer on the second full day of the annual event were Paramore, Queens of the Stone Age and Vampire Weekend on the main stage.

But there were plenty more excellent acts on offer on the various stages dotted around Bramham Park, with Aluna George, We Were Evergreen, Drenge, King Charles and The Districts among those to stand out.

On the BBC Introducing stage, there were a number of local bands in action, including Wakefield’s CryBabyCry, along with Leeds’s GirlsOnDrugs and Dancing Years.
