The Stockport band headlined the four-day event in Oxfordshire on Thursday night (July 21).
Towards the end of their 18-track set, Blossoms treated the crowd to their own version of the 1981 anthem “Don’t You Want Me” and have since shared images of the cover on Instagram. “The crowd was the boss!!!” they wrote in the caption.
The band’s rendition of The Human League’s biggest hit preceded their main set “My Favorite Room”, which was followed by a two-track encore of “There A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)” and “Charlemagne”.

Earlier this month, Tom Ogden and co. shared a cover of Harry Styles’ recent single “As It Was” as part of Apple Music’s Home Session series. It came after they performed the Spice Girls’ “Spice Up Your Life” with Mel C at Glastonbury 2022.
The five musicians released their album “Isolation Covers” in 2020. It featured new versions of songs by Frank Ocean, The Coral and Tame Impala that the band had recorded during the first COVID lockdown.
Blossoms’ fourth studio album, “Ribbon Around The Bomb”, was released in April. The band’s new ‘Live At Sefton Park’ collection arrived last week as part of a ‘super deluxe’ edition of their latest album.
“As of Sunday May 2, 2021, it has been 413 days since anyone played a gig in the UK,” Blossoms wrote to announce the 17-track live album. “That night we played a showpiece show at Sefton Park, Liverpool.”
In a review of the pageant itself, NME‘s Rhys Buchanan wrote, “There’s a sense of unity and unrestrained messy joy when we hear headlines like ‘There’s a Reason Why’ and ‘I Can’t Take It’.
“The punters’ promise of being able to act as if the pandemic had never happened is clearly being delivered: the homies are on the shoulders, the people are crossing the crowd to the front. It really is business as usual. »
