From reporter Liz Jackson who is at the event:
 

Johnny Marr was on top form during his set on the Castle Stage, with the unmistakeable guitar twang that made him so popular with The Smiths.

He played everything from Smiths’ classics such as “Stop Me” to “New Town Velocity” and his version of “I Fought the Law” to a crowd who had clearly been waiting for his gig as the high point of their night.

Living up to his reputation as a skilled performer, Marr more than filled the camp with his music and even from the other side of the site you could hear his set breaking through the surround noise.
