Campers at this summer’s Sundown Festival at the Norfolk Showground will be able to finish their weekend with one of the world’s biggest dance labels.
Dance label Hed Kandi have been confirmed as the hosts for the festival’s closing party on Sunday, September 1.
Two DJs and two live sax and percussion acts will perform on the showground’s indoor Warehouse Arena at the after-show party, which is open only to festival campers.
There will be after-show parties at the end of each day’s main performances - with the likes of Example, DJ Fresh, Rita Ora and X Factor winner James Arthur already lined up for the main stage on Saturday, August 31, and Rinse FM’s Stage 2 including sets from Skepta, Redlight and High Contrast.
While Jessie J, JLS, Union J and Amelia Lily will be performing on the main stage on the Sunday, with Hospitality’s Stage 2 line-up featuring sets by the likes of Netsky and Danny Byrd.
Sundown Festival spokesman, Dion Clements, said: “With its distinct upbeat house music style, Hed Kandi is a truly global brand that we’re very pleased to welcome to our Warehouse stage for the campers after show closing party.”
