After threatening to rain all day, the heavens finally opened in the last few hours of Kendal Calling.

Many still stood defiant however to welcome the festival's final act of the weekend.

Duo Royal Blood took to the stage on Sunday and ensured they rocked the life back into a wearisome, wet crowd - many of whom had been there since Thursday.

The pair burst onto the stage with a matching explosive lightshow with what was the band's debut single, Out of the Black. Joined occasionally by a keys player, the set saw singer and bass guitarist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher interchange solos throughout each showcasing their fantastic musical chops.

The pair also took turns to come to the crowd - which also saw the beginnings of few moshpits at several points. The band executed some great performances of their songs with particular highlights being Trouble's Coming, Typhoon and Come On Over.

This isn't to mention the storm that went down when they played well-loved singles such as Little Monster. Despite the band mostly performing as a two-piece, an emanating wall of sound was created with bass that could be felt as well as heard.

Singer Mike thanked everyone for holding out in the rain however it was the band's electric performance that was the true thank you.
