Two more big names have been confirmed for Sundown Festival 2014, as camping tickets sold breaks 80 per cent already. US Rap star Pusha T has been confirmed to perform the main stage on Saturday, 30 August, while Jess Glynne will join the Sunday line-up.
As one half of hip hop duo Clipse, and a solo star in his own right, two-time Grammy Award winner – for 2003’s Like I Love You with Justin Timberlake and 2013’s Mercy with Kanye West, Big Sean and 2 Chainz – Pusha T has scored numerous hits in both the US singles and album chart and has worked with everyone from Pharrell to Kanye West.
Fresh on the back of two #1 hit singles as a featured artist, on Rather Be with Clean Bandit – who are also performing Sundown’s Sunday – and My Love with Route 94, Jess Glynne’s star is rising fast, with big things expected of her this year, a spot on the Sundown line-up included.
Whether Jess will team-up with Clean Bandit to perform Rather Be together at Sundown has not yet been revealed.
Sundown Festival, recently featured in BBC Three’s Festivals, Sex & Suspicious Parents special episodes, now boasts a main stage line-up of Chase & Status, Tinie Tempah, Zane Lowe, Katy B, Foxes and Pusha T on the Saturday, with Ellie Goulding, John Newman, Clean Bandit, Neon Jungle, Ella Eyre and Jess Glynne on the Sunday, with more to be announced in the coming weeks and months.
Elsewhere, Sundown’s dance Stage 2 will be hosted by House specialists Defected Records on the Saturday night, with DJs MK, Breach, Sam Divine and Shadow Child announced so far, while drum and bass label RAM Records take over for the Sunday, with Andy C, Wilkinson, Calyx & Teebee and Delta Heavy now confirmed.
