Some of the music industry’s biggest chart acts will be appearing at the two-day event, which started yesterday.

Up to 40,000 people are expected to visit the festival at the Norfolk Showground, near Norwich, with around 8,000 camping over the weekend.

Evening News/ EDP reviewer Chris Thompson said: “The atmosphere is one of expectation and fun for everyone basking in the sun and sounds of the main stage and those already exerting vast amounts of energy in the dance tent.

“Local artist Oliver Daldry made a fantastic debut, drawing a larger than expected crowd of fans with tracks from his album ‘the boy who fell’.

“Next on stage, Virus Syndicate, picked up the energy, getting everyone jumping around and ready for Sasha Keable to deliver her fusion of R&B pop.

“As the evening approaches, excitement around both stages is increasing for the headline acts.”

Today, Ellie Goulding, John Newman, Clean Bandit, Neon Jungle, Ella Eyre and Jess Glynne will be performing.

Dion Clements, festival spokesman, said: “Sunday tends to be our biggest day, but over the course of the weekend we are expecting 50,000 to pass through the gates.”

“Generally it appeals more to teenagers and 20 somethings, but we have a huge age range from five to right up to grandparents bringing their grandchildren.”

  • What would be the chances of a rock festival taking place at the show ground? Probably not very much! I wonder as to why that is?

  • Oh at the people moaning about the noise, it's only for a couple of days. How many times do you Pee your neighbours off with your screaming Brats, and loud music when you feel like it. Oh different story then isn't it?

  • I found the bass too noisy last night and I live 3 miles away. No more of these festivals please unless they are in the middle of Thetford Forest or some other remote place.

  • Maybe some of these whinging Easton Bawburgh dwellers should move to Blickling - or would the violins be 'too screechy' and the fireworks 'too loud' during their (rare) prom concerts? Jeez, people, it's two (2) days in a calendar year - and you can always go visit relatives or have a weekend in a hotel if it's that intolerable. Live and let live - as people did when the complainers were twenty-something years old!

  • Stop moaning about the noise, it's a showground, the clue is in the name, stick you ear plugs in and stop your whinging. NIMBY strikes again.

  • Stopping at 22:30 is not late. Get a grip. It's 2 days a year and it's far less disruptive than the Norfolk Show as it's not on when people are trying to commute. The show ground has to earn money, the sundown festival is the only one of the year in this area. There are inventions like ear plugs and it's not like a party next door which is unexpected with rowdy neighbours up till silly o'clock talking, laughing and singing loudly. You have fair warning.

  • I moved from Easton earlier this year and have witnessed these festivals in the past. The incessant boom boom bass music is so loud and goes on for two days. The fact that the stage is pointing directly towards Easton village is difficult to comprehend when there are alternatives.

  • I'm in Easton, couldn't hear it. Possibly due to wind direction. I was disappointed, normally get a free concert :-)

  • The noise was audible from The Avenues in Norwich - a sickening, thudding bass beat. I feel sorry for everyone who lives close to the Showground for enduring this.

  • what do you expect at an R&B and hip-hop festival? If you want a good old rock outfit, go to a rock festival.

  • As usual the dire mix of r&b, hip-hop and pop acts. What happened to a good old rock outfit? I wouldn't go to this if you paid me. Utter trash but then the kids of Norwich & Norfolk wouldn't know any better!

  • not one to moan about the usage of the showground other than the Norfolk show or the inevetable queues of traffic on the Dereham Road through Costessey, but as i live over a mile away from the showground i don't expect my house to be vibrating from the music still at 2240 at night! i feel sorry for the people of Easton who must be pulling their hair out! By all means have concerts but turn it down!
