Swedish DJ Avicii’s last-minute withdrawal with a stomach bug didn’t seem to have dampened the spirits of the almost 45,000 people at Arena Joondalup.

Korean pop superstar Psy had the crowd moving in his afternoon set, deciding that his smash hit Gangnam Style was too good to only play once, treating fans to a second rendition.

The Temper Trap put on an impressive performance with tight instrumentals melding beautifully with frontman Dougy Mandagi’s powerful voice.

The now London-based indie rockers had the crowd swaying along to Trembling Hands and Sweet Disposition.

English rapper Dizzie Rascal put on an energetic set including fan-favourites Baselin Junkie and Dance Wiv Me.

After a half-hour delay because of technical difficulties, headliners The Prodigy took to the stage in the Warrior Dance Arena.

For the first part of their set, the band was largely obscured by thick smoke, but once it cleared, excited fans were treated to an energetic set.
