British rocker Damon Albarn has been carried offstage by security guards at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark after refusing to end his five-hour set.

The Blur frontman took to the stage for a headline show with his musical collective Africa Express and five hours later, Albarn was still performing.

Festival organisers asked him to finish at around 4am local time but he refused and instead asked the crowd to join him in an acoustic rendition of The Clash's hit Should I Stay Or Should I Go.

"F*** what anyone says, you want more, we're gonna give you more," Albarn told the crowd following the second request to finish.

A security guard then picked Albarn up and hauled him into the wings to boos from the disappointed audience.
