This past weekend, Scotland held the 17th annual T in the Park festival, with Coldplay headlining. As they have in the past, the London quartet brought something special to their fest set: a quickie cover of Scotland’s own Travis, a band often mentioned in the same breath as Coldplay.

Frontman Chris Martin chose the band’s breakthrough single “Why Does It Always Rain on Me?,” using it to lead into his own “Fix You.” The fan reaction makes the 60-second performance something special, with thousands of Scots singing along as loudly as they do to “Fix You” itself. Check it out below. (via Fake Plastic Tunes)
