Highly anticipated, following the phenomenal growth of what has become one of the UK’s best live-music events to end the summer festival calendar, the headliners for Sundown Festival 2014 have been announced and, for the fourth year running, will see more of the hottest music stars head to Norfolk, over Friday 29 to Sunday 31 August.
Tinie Tempah headlines Sundown for the first time, with the We Bring the Stars Out, Children of the Sun and Lover Not a Fighter singer leading the line-up on Saturday’s main stage.
Chase & Status remain one of the most in-demand Sundown acts and are confirmed to perform tracks from their new album along with a mix of their hits, and BBC Radio 1’s own Zane Lowe, renowned for his masterful and epic live sets, will also perform on Saturday’s main stage line-up.
As one of the most versatile and eclectic female singers in the UK today, Brit-Award nominee Ellie Goulding will headline the main stage on Sunday 31 August. The Starry Eyed, How Long Will I Love You and Burn singer has not only enjoyed huge solo success, but has also landed hits in collaboration with a number of Sundown artists, and is welcomed to Sundown for the first time.
Fellow Brit-Award nominee John Newman is also confirmed to make his first Sundown performance on Sunday’s main stage after becoming one of the hottest artists to have soared into the public psyche with the #1 hit singles Feel the Love and Love Me Again.
