Clean Bandit had the crowd in the palm of their hands by singing their hits aswell as covers at Forest Live Thetford

The final night of the Forest Live series ended on a high due to Clean Bandit’s energetic performance.

The trio, most known for their songs Sympathy, Rather be, and their Christmas number one Rockabye Baby, were the closing act for the Forest Live series at Thetford Forest and they did not disappoint.

Clean Bandit kicked off their set with an up-tempo number Stronger.

These talented musicians, singers, dancers and all-round showmen worked the crowd better than some more established acts.

It is hard to remember seeing a band who enjoys performing as much as Clean Bandit.

They get a genuine sense of satisfaction hearing the crowd singing back to them and seem to appreciate the chance to entertain.

Their repertoire is not as extensive as some of the other bands who have played this weekend but with a few covers thrown in their set list was just as impressive. 
The set quickly made you realise just how many hits they have had since making their name in 2014 when they collaborated with Jess Glynne on Rather Be.

They really settled into their performance when they sang their current track Symphony, a hit with the many younger fans in the audience.

They saved Rather Be until the very end, ensuring the night ended as it started.

A stellar weekend at Thetford Forest and we now wait with baited breath to see who will be taking to the stage when Forest Live returns in 2018.
