An unsigned band from Norfolk have described their first ever appearence at Glastonbury Festival on Friday afternoon as "absolutely amazing".

Fever Fever performed to hundreds of people on the BBC Introducing Stage after being selected to play by new music show BBC Introducing in Norfolk.

The pop-punk three-piece played a quick-fire set of eight songs featuring fan favourites Teeth and Monster.

"It was the best thing we'd ever done," said guitarist Ellie Jones.

"We were feeling quite nervous beforehand. It was positive and really good - people stayed, which is always a plus," she added.

On Sunday their live performance of Monster was also played by new music champion Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music.

The rising Norwich group have performed at a number of other high-profile festivals this year including Camden Crawl in London and South by Southwest (SXSW) in Texas.

Ed Sheeran

Also shining as a headliner on the BBC Introducing Stage was Suffolk's Ed Sheeran, who started out his rapidly-growing career in the small pubs and bars of Norwich.

His much-applauded Glastonbury set - one of his eight during the entire weekend - coincided with his first single The A Team reaching number three in the UK charts.

The singer-songwriter returns to the city in July where he has sold out a record three nights at the Norwich Waterfront.

Both Fever Fever and Ed Sheeran's Glastonbury performances were filmed and photographed by BBC Introducing and can be seen on the BBC Glastonbury website.
