Heineken Green Spheres, Saturday 10th July, 5:35pm

Describe in a Tweet:
  Eloquent folk songstress gets caught up in an electronic haze.

What Happened: Adorned in a sparkly festive red and green shirt, the eloquent Ellie came on stage accompanied by a keyboard player, guitarist and drummer. Singing soulfully from her new 2010 album the crowd really got revved up for 'Guns And Horses' before singing along to 'Your Biggest Mistake' while the main lady played the acoustic guitar. Ellie shared that she was really enjoying being in Dublin, and remarked that the crowd had an "amazing attitude". Then 'Under The Sheets' saw Ellie go crazy on drums and enter into a sort of possessed trance. Moreover, there was one point where every single person on stage was wildly banging on one drum or another to their own carnal rhythm. Climaxing on 'Starry Eyed' and giving it her all, Ms. Goulding got the whole crowd into full swing. And at the end of the set, the miniature songstress gave an almighty backwards bow to the audience.

Crazy in Love:  Ellie's mimed star signs with her hands to 'Starry Eyed' brought dance moves to a whole new level.

99 Problems: Bad sound levels meant you couldn't quite catch her onstage banter and with Florence on another stage nearby, a good number of people left midway in a mass exodus.

Oxegen rating: 7/10
