Kasabian have opened the Belsonic music festival in dramatic style.

The Leicestershire band performed to thousands in Belfast's Custom House Square.

Billed as the city's biggest music event this summer, some of Europe's best-known names will perform over the course of the eight-day event.

Kasabian classics like Underdog wowed the crowd in the compact venue.

Vocalist Tom Meighan said: "Belfast you sound beautiful tonight."

Voted best British group at the Brit awards this year, the outfit treated the crowd to a high-energy set.

Ash also performed and received a rapturous reception.

A record 40,000 people are expected to attend the festival.

Paul Weller, DJ David Guetta and Biffy Clyro are also lined up to entertain the crowds as well as Stereophonics and highly rated local groups Cashier Number 9 and General Fiasco.
