The New York-based outfit were topping off the weekend's live performances when Nancy Whang encountered some problems with the sound of her keyboards. Paying the blip little attention, however, James Murphy lead the band into a particularly impassioned 'Yeah, Yeah, Yeah' while the sound crew attempted to fix it.
The roll call for the band was slightly modified for the festival, as Murphy told the crowd two babies were being expected, for their sound engineer and, most notably, by the replacement of bassist and new father Tyler Pope with Hot Chip's Al Doyle. Doyle -- a former member of the LCD live outfit -- stepped into the breach during Whang's sound issues, playing synth keyboards.
The band rounded off their set with a partially-fixed keyboard and personalised version of 'Losing My Edge' for the encore, in which Murphy listed alternate stages at the festival during his verses that dissect cool. The singer also displayed pictures from his iPhone on the stage; presumably images taken from around the festival site.
Bestival marked the conclusion of LCD Soundsystem's current touring commitments for the third album 'This Is Happening'. The group will now return to the States for two weeks before a new leg of touring in co-headline shows with Hot Chip begin in October. The label mates return to the UK in November.
