Olly Murs, Pixie Lott and Dizzee Rascal among top acts announced for Norfolk Spectacular, which is renamed as the Sundown Festival

Pop stars Olly Murs, Pixie Lott and Dizzee Rascal are the big names who will headline this year's Norfolk Spectacular.

Last year's inaugural two-day music festival attracted around 30,000 people to the Norfolk Showground, which has allowed its organisers to attract some more mainstream musicians this year.

The festival has also been renamed and will now be known as the Sundown Festival.

With further acts still to be added to the bill, other confirmed acts also include; drum and bass DJs Chase & Status, dubstep star Katy B, Radio One rock DJ Zane Lowe and rapper Miss Dynamite.

Sundown Festival spokesman, Dion Clements, said: 'The exciting mix of these chart-topping, urban-tipped and dance acts is just the start of what will be a massive line-up of the music world's hot talents, in an event that is expected to firmly place the Sundown Festival on the annual, live-music event calendar.

'Together with the new name – truly appropriate for the timing of the festival towards the end of summer – the additional organisers and top line-up, we're opening up the event to people from right across the UK as well as the fans who supported last year's event on a massive scale.'

The festival is being held over the weekend of September 1 and 2 and will also incorporate a series of 'after-hours' warehouse parties for those camping on-site, of which there were around 2,000 last year.
