Sean, who hails from Jamaica, has had 13 top ten singles and two number ones with Breathe, which he collaborated on with Blu Cantrell, and What About Us with girlband The Saturdays.

He is known across the world for his iconic live performances and is bound to get the Showground shaking when the popular festival returns from Friday, September 4 to Sunday, September 6.

The other headliner is hip-hop star Loyle Carner, who grew up in south London and the 25-year-old has gained a legion of fans for his confessional lyrics and has released two acclaimed albums called Yesterday's Gone and Not Waving But Drowning.

He was also nominated for British Male Solo Artist at the 2018 Brit Awards and performed in the region last July at Latitude Festival in Suffolk.

Following complaints by local residents of piles of rubbish left by festival-goers after last year's event, the organisers have introduced a £5 litter bond added to the ticket price.

Those that collect a full bag of litter in one of the bags provided and take it back to the drop-off point will get their £5 back in cash.

Tickets go on sale at 8am on Friday, February 28, with weekend camping tickets from £120, day tickets from £42.50 at sundownfestival.co.uk
