Example stunned by large crowds at V Festival

Example performed an energetic set to a packed crowd at V Festival in Chelmsford today.

The rapper - real name Elliot Gleave - played the 4Music stage, giving fans the opportunity to hear material from his upcoming album Playing In The Shadows.

The 28-year-old kicked off his set with new track 'The Skies Don't Lie', which is taken from his forthcoming LP.

After performing a rendition of his single 'Last Ones Standing', the Londoner told the crowd: "Thank you V. My name's Example and I'm very glad to be here on this very sunny evening."

He continued to play his new single 'Stay Awake', urging the crowd to form moshpits. He then curiously asked: "Do we need to remove any dead people from the crowd?" before singing 'Watch The Sun Come Up'.

Pleased with the crowd reaction to his set, Example joked: "I want to thank you all for coming today; even if you came for Olly Murs and you're here by accident."

The star rounded off his 35-minute appearance with new song 'Natural Disaster', his 2010 hit 'Kickstarts' and his recent number one 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me'.

As he walked off stage, he cheekily declared: "Thank you very much V. You can all go home now."

Example's third studio album Playing In The Shadows will be released on September 5.
