VIDEO: Drone footage and photos of Splendour crowd

The music, the weather and the fantastic atmosphere made for a memorable Splendour enjoyed by the festival's biggest ever crowd - a whopping 21,000 people headed down to Wollaton Park.

A day of musical highlights across the three stages was brought to a close with a dazzling set from Jess Glynne as she headlined her first ever festival.

The rest of the line up also went down a storm as huge crowds at the Main and Confetti stages sang along all day to hits from UB40; The Human League and The Darkness.

The sell-out festival marked the biggest ever Splendour in its nine year history.

Even with an additional 3,000 tickets on sale to meet the exceptional demand, ticket sales surpassed all previous years and the event completely sold out.

Organised by DHP Family in partnership with Nottingham City Council, George Akins, DHP Family owner, was on site all day.

He said: “We’re proud to have once again staged a hugely successful Splendour.

“The months of careful planning by DHP Family and Nottingham City Council paid off to make it an enjoyable experience on the day for everyone involved from the artists backstage to all the people who came to enjoy the music, comedy, food and fringe acts.

“Now we can’t wait to get started on putting together an amazing line up for next year’s big 10th birthday!”

Tickets for next year’s 10th birthday event, taking place on Saturday July 22, are already on sale.
