Kings Of Leon closed Isle of Wight festival 2014 with a headline set spanning their six studio albums.
The band opened with Supersoaker and went on to play tracks including Taper Jean Girl, Fans and Closer.
Singer Caleb Followill introduced the band before saying: "It's a pleasure to be here."
Kings of Leon also includes Caleb's brother Nathan on drums and bass player Jared with their cousin Matthew on lead guitar.
The group eased through their set, seeming more cohesive than in previous years.
Their set also included current single Temple, Sex On Fire and Molly's Chambers.
American band Fall Out Boy were one of the final acts on the main stage and gave the crowd a boost with a set that included a heartfelt sing-a-long of My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark.
They also played at Download over the weekend and told Newsbeat it took them a while to get used to playing UK festivals.
Singer Patrick Stump said: "We don't have anything really like it [the UK festival culture] at all in the states. It's just a very different thing than we're used to.
"But now we've got our lay of the land."
Bassist Peter Wentz added: "I feel like it [the UK festival season] is kind of our summer ritual now."
Suede, Passenger and Ella Eyre were also on the bill.
Eyre, 20, who has previously toured with Rudimental, is playing at several festivals this summer including Glastonbury, T in the Park and Wireless.
She got her first number one featuring on the London quartet's Waiting All Night but said "it's nice to have control" over her solo material.
Travis, who topped the bill at the festival in 2005, headlined the Big Top stage with The Horrors, Peace and The Strypes also appearing.
Deap Vally, Swim Deep and Pylo were also on the festival's second largest stage
Calvin Harris and Biffy Clyro headlined the opening night of the event, while Red Hot Chili Peppers topped the bill on Saturday.
Isle Of Wight was originally held between 1968 and 1970 and featured acts like Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan.
This year marked the 13th anniversary of the Newport event's relaunch, with around 60,000 people on the site over the weekend.
Organisers told Newsbeat that the festival is currently set to return over the same three days in 2015.
