Irish rockers Kodaline suffered a major mishap during their set at the Glastonbury festival when a technical problem left them playing without sound.

The band had no idea the music had gone off while they were on stage at the iconic British event over the weekend (29-30Jun13), and frontman Steve Garrigan thought their performance had been deemed a dismal failure when the audience stopped dancing.

He tells Britain's Daily Star, "I looked out and saw the crowd were completely motionless. They started chanting 'up' but I thought they were saying 'off'. It was bizarre. We had to go off (stage) for a bit and when we went back on (stage) the crowd got behind us."
