Hip hop heavyweight Tinie Tempah and Starry Eyed songstress Ellie Goulding will headline this year’s Sundown Festival, it can be revealed

Electronic duo Chase & Status will return to the popular event at Norfolk Showground, with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, dance upstarts Clean Bandit and soul singer John Newman joining them on the bill.

The highly anticipated festival was attended by 38,000 last year, with all camping tickets sold out months in advance.

And as it returns for the fourth year on August 29 to 31, organisers have promised a musical feast for fans of pop.

Festival spokesman Dion Clements said: “Sundown Festival has enjoyed incredible success in quickly establishing itself as one of the UK’s best live music events to end the summer season.

“Tinie Tempah, Chase & Status and Zane Lowe are all like established Sundown royalty, while Ellie, John and Clean Bandit offer Sundown festivalites the chance to see them perform here for the first time.

“With our unique mixed offering of the top urban, pop and dance acts, Sundown caters for a massive range of tastes in the music spectrum, bringing together a diverse music audience for one huge weekend.”
