Hurts brought the main stage of Dot to Dot Festival 2011 to a close with tracks from their debut album 'Happiness' including 'Wonderful Life' and last single 'Better than Love'.

The set closed the largest stage of the festival which saw performances from The Naked and Famous and Darwin Deez amongst others earlier in the day.

The festival continues across other venues tonight with sets from Guillemots, Morning Parade, We Are Scientists, SBTRKT and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
