British band You Me At Six are the final act to be announced as a headliner for this year's Sundown Festival.

The five piece join a massive line-up that features acts such as Craig David, Pendulum, Rag 'N' Bone Man, Giggs and X Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

Fresh from the launch of their fifth album, Night People, and a huge UK tour that saw them perform in Norwich last month, You Me At Six will be heading for Sundown to give one of their trademark high energy sets.

Lead singer, Josh Franceschi, said: 'Norwich has a special place in my heart particularly because it's where my mum went to university at UEA and I was brought up on the war stories of her time there.

'We originally had an exclusive deal with Reading and Leeds that we wouldn't play any other festivals this summer in England, but the offer came up and the opportunity to play Norwich was one we really didn't want to turn down.'

He added: 'We're looking forward to being a part of it. It's not necessarily the line-up that you would partner You Me At Six with, but that's the beauty of music, there isn't really a rule book for this sort of stuff.'

The Sundown Festival takes place from September 1-3 and this year is set to be 'bigger and better than ever' according to organisers.
