· Sundown

If you’re looking for the perfect way to spend a summer weekend that includes a lot of parties and Jason Derulo, we think we’ve found the answer. On the 2nd-4th September, Sundown festival is once again going to take over Norfolk Showground in Norwich to host some of the hottest music artists in the world right now. So whether you’re looking for a way to splash that extra cash you earnt this month, or you’re unsure if this is the festival for you, here is the only guide to Sundown festival you’ll ever need.

The Line-Up

So we’ve already let it slip that Mr Derulo will be tearing up the stage at Sundown this year, but he is set to be in some very good company. On Saturday, the stage will be dominated by Chase and Status, Jess Glynne, Dizzee Rascal, Kano, Becky Hill, Ms Dynamite, M.O, Espa, My Nu Leng and others. On Sunday, you’ll be joined by Years & Years, Krept & Konan, Fleur East, Sigala, Anne-Marie, Stooshe, Blonde, Wilkinson and many more. This line-up is full of some pop-legends, talented rappers and dance acts that will keep you on your feet all day and all night. It’s so diverse that even the biggest group of friends could go along and find something to keep everybody happy.   

Camps, parties and apps

The folks at Sundown believe that camping is a “go hard or go home” kinda experience, so for anyone who feels like spending their nights living it up in a tent, they’ve sorted you out with everything you need for this to be the perfect festival experience. Combining old school camping with some more modern luxuries, you’ll have access to cold beers at the campsite off licence, pay as you go showers, lockers, phone charging, ATMs, pamper parlours, cafes… pretty much anything you’ll ever need. Plus, if you happen to forget a sleeping bag or maybe even your tent, there is a Camping store available where you can purchase all those vital things which slipped your mind. Campers are all welcome on site from 11am on Friday 2nd September. If you’re bringing young children or you are a parent who doesn’t want to be stuck in the middle of all the night action, there is a Family Campsite available. Or, if you feel you could do with something a little more glamourous than a 4-man Argos tent, then you can also check out the ‘glamping’ options, which are all being brought to you by ZooBells. We’re talking posh bell tents with stylish furnishings and Egyptian cotton….BUT, that’s not even the best part about camping. No, the best part is that you’ll have exclusive access to the Big Top Opening Party with Danny Howard. And, let’s not forget the Big Top After Party on Saturday too. So, this is how your weekend will shape up - after starting the festival in a the form of a kick-ass party, you’ll have a day of watching some of your favourite artists before you dance all night. And then, you can collapse in your tent for a quick snooze before doing it all again on Sunday! This year, Sundown Fest has created an app for all you lucky people going along. If you download now, you’ll have prime access to all the latest news and you’ll be the first to hear the super-secrets reveals they have planned…
