Damon Albarn was in particularly high spirits at the Roskilde Music Festival in Denmark this weekend.

Albarn was performing with his Africa Express collective and the artists - including Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' - staged a 5-hour set which was still going strong at 4am.

The Blur frontman was having a ball with the collective and had Laura Mvula on stage as well as his Blur bandmate Graham Coxton.

However, security had enough by 4am and demanded Albarn wrap things up.  He refused, instead asking the crowd to cheer, but he ended up being physically carried off stage by security.
