More than 20,000 people went to Wollaton Park for Splendour 2011, Eliza Doolittle, Blondie and the Scissor Sisters were all on the main stage.
Capital spoke to Jake Shears and Babydaddy backstage, they told us outside gigs are the best:
"A day like today is really magical.
"There's nothing better than being outdoors in the summertime, I do prefer it to being inside, especially if it's a day like today and the vibe that goes on on a day like today"
Splendour was the Scissor Sisters last gig of six in the UK and before they went on stage, Jake told Capital what a massive loss Amy Winehouse's death is:
"It's incredibly sad and I think the band is really bummed out right now and people in general.
"One of the saddest things about it is, is like, you'd almost give anything for more music from someone that amazing and such a talented singer."
Babbydaddy told us that it must've been difficult for Amy to be a solo artist:
"Being out there alone has got to be really really tough, I would imagine.
"I'm sure it's hard to know who to trust and how to deal with things sometimes."
