Reformations, to me, are like meeting up with an ex girlfriend. It can go either way. What charms were once seen as being the most enlightening of features can grow withered, tired and lose their edge. Or you light the spark for a future of prospect, or at least a moment to hold onto. Hyde Park’s been at the centre of these affairs for the last few years. With fans flocking to see brit-pop’s re-issue into the 21st century, Blur smashed it in 2009, leaving the bar set high for Pulp to take charge of their 'London via Sheffield' homecoming.

A smooth indie vibe reverberated around the site throughout the day as the last crowd of the weekend joined in sending off the final day of Wireless. Metronomy alternatives, Clock Opera rocked a small but captivated tent at stage three as their sample based masterpieces set down a stance for the day to continue on.

The Horrors came next as a straight edge set left some members of their large audience bamboozled. With the band favouring to play tracks from the critically acclaimed Primary Colours some of the crowd, surprisingly, seeming not to be of such an appreciative nature, making for a cold reaction. Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen shouted down the second stage with her band Pretty Reckless while Naked & Famous went onto deliver a set received with much praise by the audience.

Foals, playing one of a limited amount of UK festival dates this year headlined the second stage while Grace Jones strutted around the main. Playing what seemed to be a newly arranged set, the Oxford boys seemed all the more comfortable with their performance, and as ever broke down the elements between crowd and performer with fans weaving and popping simultaneously.

Then came the turn of Pulp. A sense of unity for the moment could be sensed throughout the crowd as a dark screen now descending upon the main stage. Smiles adorned, conversations about set-lists arose, that was until the words ‘Do You Remember The First Time?’ flashed upon the screens above. Then, within minutes our dear Jarvis appeared and rocked through a set including favourites ‘Disco 2000’, ‘Underwear’, ‘I Spy’ ‘Mis-shapes’. Energy throbbing and banter a plenty, Cocker’s conversationalist attitude on stage wasn’t faltering here, the crowd heckling accordingly. Set finisher, the obvious ‘Common People’ amassed a sing-along reminisce of Glastonbury ’95. Streamers and confetti soaring, tears flowing, yes, we did all meet up in the year 2011, we had a good time and we were thoroughly entertained.
