Fresh 'Grass

SUPERGRASS debuted two new tracks during their headline set at the ESSENTIAL FESTIVAL on Sunday (May 5).

The trio played 'Rushhour Soul' and 'Grace' during their show. The three day festival, running from May 4-6 - at Ashton Court, Bristol - marked the first major UK festival of the summer.

And despite organisers' claims that bad weather had led to several stages being shut for Sunday, leading to acts such as Reef and Therapy being bumped from the line-up, all stages had been erected for the opening day on Saturday.

Organisers had denied poor ticket sales for Sunday had led to the closures, insisting sales for the 15,000 a day capacity site were "healthy".
