Editors returned this year with their second album ‘An End Has A Start’, which went to number 1 in the UK. Having wowed crowds at the 2007 Glastonbury festival, the four-piece from Birmingham were accompanied by a string quartet at this special show.

Minute by minute report, via text message, by the BBC's James Cowdery.
- 21.03 - A string quartet.. No, no, a string 'trio' has come onstage. Confirmation: Editors have strings. Budget strings but strings nonetheless.
- 21. 08 - Editors are onstage! Tom launches into the guitar line from 'Bullets' and KOKO lights up. It's weird how a headline band shifts a venue up.
- 21.11 - Tom: "We are very proud and happy to be part of the Electric Proms this year."
- 21.19 - Editors anthem 'Blood' is destroying KOKO. There are mass outbreaks of jigging. Tom has taken off his scarf.
- 21.37 - Have come up to KOKO's VIP section. Its packed. I can see nothing. Duly return to the masses having learned valuable life lesson.
- 21.43 - Tom, Chris and strings perform a sombre, beautiful version of 'Push Your Head' to a sea of eager camera phones.
- 22.11 - A few cynical souls troop off to the bar as the band slink off. The disbelievers are back in double time for an encore of Fingers.
- 22.17 - 'Smokers...' is the encore's 2nd number. KOKO is in pieces, the crowd willing celebrants in the Church of Editors
- 22.25 - Deeply impressive... Editors exit stage sight. They are made of sweat and beer. It's been emotional.
