Arctic Monkeys are continuing their throng of live dates across Europe, this time making a stop at Sziget 2022 for a headline set.

The festival - which takes place in Budapest, Hungary - last played host to the Sheffield rockers in 2018, but has their setlist changed much four years later?

Not content to keep things safe, the Monkeys opened their with The View From The Afternoon, before launching into live favourites, Brianstorm, Snap Out Of It and Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair.

Fans hoping to get a taste of new music will have to wait a little longer as the band continued to rattle through bangers from across their career, including Crying Lightning, Teddy Picker and Knee Socks.

By the time Do I Wanna Know? made its appearance on the setlist, Alex Turner and co had already treated fans to the likes of Arabella, Pretty Visitors, Potion Approaching and One For The Road.

Unsurprisingly, the band chose to end their 21-song set on the song where it all began, I Bet You Look Good on the Danceflloor, followed by their enduring AM anthem R U Mine?
