Three very different sets brought the first day of T in the Park to a close.
On the main stage, less than two weeks after they closed Glastonbury, The Verve played an hour and a half long set in front of the biggest crowd of the day.
Dressed in a Day-Glo yellow T-shirt, singer Richard Ashcroft told the audience that they were the "best live crowd in the world" and criticised an article in that morning's Guardian newspaper that had questioned the band's relevance.

Love Is Noise
The crowd seemed a bit subdued as the band arrived on stage with little fanfare but got into the swing of things for a spirited sing-along to Sonnet.
There were a few new tracks from their forthcoming album but the biggest cheers were reserved for the songs from Urban Hymns.
Frontman Richard Ashcroft dedicated Lucky Man to his wife Kate Radley after missing their wedding anniversary to play T in the Park.
They closed with their new single, Love is Noise.
The Chemical Brothers managed to eke out their set to close the first day headlining the Radio 1/NME second stage.
They ran through a greatest hits set which included tracks like Galvanise, Hey Boy, Hey Girl and Out Of Control.
Feeder, Scouting For Girls and The Wombats played the second stage
They kept the crowd happy, finishing the set with a barnstorming performance of Block Rocking Beats.
Over on the King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, The Futureheads playing to a much smaller crowd, nevertheless put on an energetic show.
The band had good reason to celebrate as frontman Barry Hyde is getting married today to Dananananaykroyd bassist Laura Donaghey.
He told the gathered crowd: "It's been a real pleasure to play my last gig as a single man to you."

Hounds Of Love
Guitarist Ross Millard dedicated Hounds Of Love to the singer.
Hyde earlier told Newsbeat that he'd set himself some ground rules. He said: "No alcohol, maybe a glass of wine after the show but we have a long ahead.
"I've just got to get off the bus, go home for a sleep and then wake up and get married."
Millard added: "It's the first time I think we've headlined a festival like this so hopefully the rock gods will be shining on us."
On Saturday, the headline sets come from Rage Against The Machine, Kaiser Chiefs, Ian Brown and Interpol.
